Pan de yuca is a traditional Colombian bread made with yuca flour and cheese. It is delicious with a cup of hot chocolate for breakfast or for an afternoon snack with a cup of tea or coffee.
I don’t understand it, but I can’t seem to follow a recipe. Can any of you fellow food bloggers relate to this? I think this is the main reason that I don’t like to bake, as baking doesn’t allow me as much flexibility with a recipe. This yuca bread recipe failed more than once because I didn’t follow my aunt’s recipe. After ruining a couple of batches, I figured that I had better follow her recipe. It’s OK to be creative with some dishes, but sometimes it’s not such a good idea. So, here is my aunt’s pan de yuca recipe Enjoy!
(12 pan de yucas)
1 cup sour tapioca starch (yuca harina)
2 cups queso fresco
1 ½ teaspoons baking powder
