My Brazi Bites Brazilian Cheese Bread was gooey in the middle – is that normal or did I bake them wrong?

Our Brazilian Cheese Bread is made with tapioca flour, which gives the dough a natural gooey quality even when cooked. This crispy, golden brown crust and soft inside is what has made Brazilian Cheese Bread (pão de queijo) beloved around the world, but we know the distinct texture is not for everyone.

To achieve a firmer bread, you could try reducing the baking temperature by 25-50 degrees and extending the bake time by 5-10 minutes. You may also find the texture more to your liking once the product has had a chance to cool down.
