Pão de Queijo/Cheese Bread

Hello everyone! It seams not long ago I've just post something here and here I am again. I am in the basement and can't hear the phone ringing, so if someone leave me a message, fine, but If it doesn't...
Well, I had to go upstairs and I saw the light of the answering machine flashing. Yes, a very good friend of mine phoned and left me a message reminding me that I forgot to post a recipe she's been waiting for a few days(to be honest, since last Saturday!!!) But I understand why the "rush"...
Here my friend, this recipe is for you and for the others who have been asking me and waiting that long.
The delicious, healthy and easy to make:

Pão de Queijo or Brazilian Cheese Bread

1/2 of a package of Tapioca flower or tapioca starch(gluten free)
3 eggs
1 cup of milk or water
1 or 1/2 cup of vegetable oil
300gr of grated cheese (mozzarella, Parmesan or Friulano)
1 tsp salt

Preheat oven 375C. In a pan, add milk, oil and salt and take it to boil.
In a mixing bowl, put tapioca flower and add the boiling mixture of milk/oil. Leave for a few minutes, about 2. Add eggs, cheese and mix them all together until they are all consistent.
You can bake right away or put in the fridge for an hour, so the mixture will be more firm and you can make little balls.
Either way will work anyway!
As I can't wait that long, you can fill a muffin pan (don't fill to the top, otherwise it will spill!) and bring it to bake for approximately 25 minutes. They will be golden color when it's ready.
Voilá, it is ready to eat! Or quite... Careful to not burn your mouth, but believe me, it is delicious when is hot, or I should say, warm? Don't forget to make a nice cup of coffee or tea and invite some friends over to try this delicious recipe! I'm going to make myself some tonight so I can later on I'll add some pictures to this post. Now, I have to rush to make some for myself!

Bon Appetit!
