Layne’s Gluten-Free Pan De Yuca
Pan de yuca is a traditional Colombian bread made with yuca flour and cheese. It’s best eaten fresh out of the oven and can be served anytime of the day with a cup of coffee or hot chocolate.
Ingredients (use organic when available):
1-cup tapioca starch (yuca)
1 1/2 cups (or about 12 ounces) queso fresco (or mozzarella cheese), grated
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4-teaspoon raw sugar
2 large eggs, beaten
Non-stick cooking spray
Preheat oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit (about 220 Celsius). Spray a 12-cup muffin tray with non-stick cooking spray and set aside. In a large mixing bowl, using your (clean) hands, gently combine all ingredients until well blended but do not over mix! Divide into 12 equal portions and roll each into a ball. Place in muffin cups and bake for about 10 to 12 minutes or until golden on top. Serve warm. Serves 12.
