Gluten-free Bread Maker Cheese Loaf Fast2eat

Gluten-free Bread Maker Cheese Loaf Fast2eat

They are so addictive, delicious, and once you start eating, you just can’t stop… no kidding – they are just that wonderful. I dare you to just eat one piece.

If you’ve never had this type of Brazilian cheese bread (Pão de queijo), it’s tricky to explain. Just don’t expect an actual yeast bread. If you do, then you’ll probably think these are super weird and gooey. The outside is slightly crisp and browned and the inside is airy and chewy. Also have a very mild cheesy flavour thanks to the use of Parmesan cheese, though you could substitute any other cheese you’d like for a more pronounced or different cheese flavour.

Also try them with cream cheese, Requeijão (Brazilian Cream Cheese), butter or even some dulce de leche! Yum!

Author: Susana Macedo

Ingredients

  • 3 Egg
  • 1 cup Milk
  • 1/2 cup Oil
  • 3 cup Tapioca Starch - 1 pack of 1Lb / 454g
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • 1 cup Friulano cheese - or Mozzarella cheese - shredded -reserve - or more to taste
  • 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese - grated - reserve - or more to taste
  • 1/2 tbsp Oregano - reserve
  • 2 tsp Baking powder - reserve

Instructions

  • Attach the kneading blade in the Bread Maker pan.
  • Place ingredients into the bread pan following the recipe order *(or following the order and method specified in the manual of your Bread Maker – mine is: FIRST, liquid ingredients; SECOND, dry ingredients; LAST, yeast).
  • *Important: Gluten-free bread must first have liquid ingredients whisked together in a separate bowl to ensure proper blending.
  • Carefully insert bread pan into Bread Maker and gently close the lid.
  • Select the “Gluten-free”** bread setting and press the Start button.
    “Crust Colour” and “size” cannot be changed.
  • ** If your bread maker doesn't have the gluten-free cycle, the Gluten-Free bread should be baked on the Basic setting.
  • After 6 minutes of pre-mixing, use a Silicone Spatula to wipe the flour from the pan. DO NOT remove the pan. KEEP it locked in the machine while removing the flour from the sides.
  • Note: the bread machine will make a beeping signal (about 6-10 minutes after starting) during the kneading cycle. Raise the lid and sprinkle the cheeses, Baking powder and oregano in. CAUTION: It is important to avoid spilling ingredients into the oven chamber. DO NOT remove the pan. KEEP it locked in the machine.
  • Close the lid and let the cycle complete (do NOT open the lid anymore). It will mix and bake the bread.
  • It will mix and bake the bread. When the baking cycle is complete, press the stop button and unplug the breadmaker.
  • Open the lid and while using Oven Mitt, firmly grasp the bread pan handle and gently pull the pan straight up and out of the machine. CAUTION: The Bread Maker and pan may be very hot! Always handle with care.
  • Use non-stick Spatula to gently loosen the sides of the bread from the pan.
  • Turn the bread pan upside down onto a Wire Cooling Rack or clean cooking surface and gently shake until bread falls out onto the rack.
  • Cool for about 10-15 minutes before slicing.

Notes

* Important: Gluten-free bread must first have liquid ingredients whisked together in a separate bowl to ensure proper blending.
** If your bread maker doesn't have the gluten-free cycle, the Gluten-Free bread should be baked on the Basic setting.

It’s always a good idea to open the bread machine’s lid during the second kneading cycle (after about 5-10 minutes) and check the consistency of the dough ball.
The dough is “just right” when it is a smooth round ball in appearance, soft to the touch, leaves a slight residue on your finger, and the bottom of the bread pan is clean of dough residue.
  • If it’s too dry, add lukewarm liquid a teaspoon at a time until it looks right.
  • If it looks too wet, add flour a tablespoon at a time until it looks right.
  • If there is flour in the sides of the pan, use a Silicone Spatula to wipe the flour from the pan.
Important: This can be done during the knead cycle only. DO NOT remove the pan. KEEP it locked in the machine. Do NOT turn off the bread maker to adjust dough.

Tapioca flour or Tapioca starch is 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 being "flour". As a starch, tapioca flour tends to be extremely low in nutrients. But, 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 why you find tapioca flour used over and over again in recipes. The low-calorie count also makes this an especially good flour for people who are trying to lose weight or decrease their calorie intake.

Weather can affect your ingredients
If you live in a moist climate, chances are you’ll need at least the recommended amount of flour, maybe even 1/4 cup to 1/2 cup more. Bread dough should be sticky, but still manageable, especially after the first rise. While you’re kneading, the dough should come together and pull away from the sides of the bowl, leaving the bowl mostly clean. I usually aim to have the very bottom of the dough still attached to the bowl. Try not to add too much flour because your bread will be denser. When you pick the dough up, some will stick to your fingers. After the first rise, it will be easier to handle!

You may also make this bread without the aid of a bread machine, or make the dough in a bread machine, and bake it in the oven.
Make the dough using your usual method (by hand, electric mixer or bread machine); allow it to rise until puffy, then shape it into a log, and place it in a lightly greased 8 1/2 x 4 1/2-inch (21.5 x 11.5 cm) bread pan. Allow the loaf to rise, covered, until it's crowned about 1 inch over the rim of the pan. If you want, brush the risen loaf with the beaten egg white, and sprinkle it with seeds. Bake it in a preheated 350°F/175°C oven for 35 minutes, or until its interior temperature registers 190°F/88°C on an instant-read thermometer. Remove the bread from the oven, remove it from the pan, and cool it on a wire rack.

How can you tell if the bread is fully baked?
I like to use a food thermometer. Mine is digital, so it’s very easy to use. Fully cooked bread will be 190-200°F/88-93°C. Bread recipes that include milk will need to cook until 200°F/93°C, but without you can take it out once it reaches 190°F/88°C. The top will be golden brown.

However, the avoidance of gluten may result in reduced consumption of beneficial whole grains, which may affect cardiovascular risk. The promotion of gluten-free diets among people without celiac disease should not be encouraged.” (Source: http://www.bmj.com/content/357/bmj.j1892)

Hi, I made the bread yesterday according to your directions and using the gluten free cycle in my machine. The bread only rose 1in. I was incredibly disappointed.

I am so sorry, Jamie.
As I said in my previous comment: “don’t expect an actual yeast bread. It is based on the Brazilian “Pão de queijo” recipe; it is not a yeast bread, it doesn’t rise as yeast bread. The consistency is gooey because it just uses tapioca starch.
I love it, but I was born in Brazil, and I don’t know any Brazilian that doesn’t like it (lol).
Most Canadians who have eaten it here loved it, but I always say, do NOT expect the yeast bread consistency.”

What loaf size should I select on my bread machine?

Hello Jamie,
My machine does not have the option to change the size with the “Gluten-free” setting. If yours allows you to change, you can use 1.5 Lb.
If you have any more questions, please ask by commenting anytime.

Thanks for the response! Mine has a gluten free setting for 1.5 and 2lb, so I wasn’t sure which to use! Do the wet the ingredients need to be warmed to room temp and do the cheeses need to be grated small? I can’t wait to make this today 🙂

Hi Jamie,
Room temperature is always better, but it is not a must as we don’t use yeast, and the baking powder is only activated during the baking cycle.
The cheese can be shredded, no need to be grated small.
Feel free to add more cheese if you like it cheesy. You could also substitute (or add) any other cheese you’d like for a more pronounced or different cheese flavour.
Tapioca flour has a delicious different texture. If you’ve never had this type of Brazilian cheese bread (the famous Brazilian Pão de queijo), it’s tricky to explain. Just don’t expect an actual yeast bread. If you do, then you’ll probably think these are super weird and gooey. I love it. It is so addictive, delicious. I cannot stop eating it.
I hope you like it. I suggest you also try a similar recipe but with small rolls: Brazilian Cheese Puffs Fast2eat and 10 Minutes Cheese Pancake..
Thank you so much for your comment, following, and sharing.

This sounds like a great recipe. I will definitely try it with my bread maker. This is fun to make bread at home and playing with cheese is never a bad idea. I am going for it. Thanx for your recipe.

Hello Andy,
I hope you like it, as much as I do.
This recipe is based on the Brazilian cheese bread (Pão de queijo), which is so addictive, I can not stop eating it.
Have you ever tried a Brazilian cheese bread (Pão de queijo)?
If not, don’t expect an actual yeast bread. If you do, then you’ll probably think it is super gooey.
