Yuca Bread with Queso Fresco

Cuisine: Latin
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 20 minutes
Servings: 15 small rolls
This recipe makes a delicious warm appetizer and the rolls can be made in advance, frozen and baked minutes before serving.

Yuca bread, or pan de yuca, is a small cheesy bread roll made with cassava flour and cheese. Latin countries have their own variations, and ingredients vary from one place to another. Queso fresco is my favorite to add to the filling, or even just on top!

Ingredients

  • 1 cup yuca flour
  • 4 cups queso fresco grated
  • 1 large egg beaten
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 2 tablespoons whole milk
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter melted
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon granulated sugar

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 375°F. Lightly grease a baking sheet or line it with parchment paper.
  2. Combine flour, cheese, egg, baking powder, milk, butter, salt, and sugar in a bowl and knead them together until thoroughly mixed and fairly smooth.
  3. Form the dough into about 15 round balls.
  4. Bake the round rolls on the baking sheet for 20 minutes or until golden brown.
  5. Serve warm. To reheat, cover the bread loosely with aluminum foil and heat at 200°F in the oven for 6 to 8 minutes.
  6. You can pair them with your favorite spread or just as a side to your favorite dish.
