A reader asked if I will soon be baking a Filipino cheese bread that doesn't have any cheese in it and I said I've never heard of this bread. But I have come across the phrase "no cheese in the dough" and mistakenly looked for it in one of my Spanish cookbooks, but later found it in FLAVORS OF PORTUGAL by Tania Gomes. The custard tartlets are called queijadas (cheese tarts) but they don't contain any cheese. The recipe is short and simple with very few ingredients. The tarts have a creamy consistency and very satisfying as a dessert or snack.

adapted from FLAVORS OF PORTUGAL by Tania Gomes

3 whole eggs
1 cup sugar
¾ cup all-purpose flour, sifted
1 teaspoon baking powder
¼ teaspoon pure vanilla extract
2¼ cups milk
soft butter to grease muffin pans
  • Preheat oven to 400°F.
  • Generously grease shallow non-stick muffin cups with butter. (Do not line muffin cups with paper)
  • In a large bowl, beat eggs and sugar together until very light and lemon colored. Whisk together flour and baking powder and blend into the egg mixture. Stir in vanilla extract and milk. Fill muffin cups 2/3 full. Bake for 20 minutes or until golden brown.
  • Remove from pan and let cool on a wire rack. Store/serve on paper muffin liners.

Oggi, being raised in Brazil, I sure had lots of queijadas or queijadinhas (little queijadas). You just brought back memories of my childhood. Beautifully done. Hope you are having a great week :-)

The bread looks so crunchy and delicious. I've never had them before. Are they soft, sweet, salty? I will look for a similar cheese-crusted bread; we'll see.:)
