It wasn't long ago that one of my husband's colleagues brought some Brazilian Cheese Bread to a gathering. That was the first time I ever tasted it, and I loved it. As curiosity strikes, I wanted to find out how to make it. I was told that the bread was made with some Brazilian Cheese Bread mix which was originated from Brazil. That sounded so authentic to me. I knew that finding the bread mix was not going to be easy, so I started searching the recipe on line. I finally saw a recipe of Brazilian Cheese Bread that I thought it would be close to what I had. After I tried the recipe, I was very happy with the result. The bread tasted very cheesy and chewy, and was exactly what I was hoping for.
