Notes

Note: You can also make it using a sandwiched maker or a waffle maker. 
Tip: You can add other ingredients to your cheese Pancakes, such as shredded chicken, turkey breast, ham, shredded beef or even arugula with carrots, oregano or other herbs or more cheese. Or reduce fat by replacing Parmesan and cream cheese with 2 tablespoons fat-free cottage cheese.

Tapioca flour or Tapioca starch is an extremely common flour for gluten-free cooking and one that I’ve used in many other recipes. For that matter, tapioca flour is sometimes considered to be the best performing gluten-free flour out there. It’s really smooth, soft flour that feels much like cornstarch. It’s made from the ground roots of the cassava (also called yuca) plant, and it’s gluten-free for those of you that care about that. It is actually a type of starch rather than what we would typically consider  "flour." As a starch, tapioca flour tends to be extremely low in nutrients. It is also low in calories and has no sugar or gluten, which are all key advantages. In terms of flavour, tapioca tends to be mild, with a slightly sweet taste. This makes it a good complement to many different types of food and is another reason you find tapioca flour used repeatedly in recipes. The low-calorie count also makes this an excellent good flour for people trying to lose weight or decrease their calorie intake.

Is a mini skillet 3.5” or another size?

Hello E,

I use a 5.5 inches pan, but it is a Fritada set like this one.
