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
- 2 eggs
- ¼ teaspoon sugar
- Pre-heat the oven to 450°F.
- In a food processor, place the yuca flour, cheese, sugar and baking powder. Process until well combine. Add the eggs slowly while food processor is running.
- Divide the mixture into 12 equal size portions and shape into a ball.
- Place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and bake for about 15 minutes or until golden on top. Serve warm.
