What is Pandebono?

It is a traditional Colombian cheese bread. I have been getting a lot of e-mails asking me for this recipe, so here it is my friends. I made these delicious Pandebonos last week and they came out perfectly and were delicious. For a minute, I did not miss Colombia while eating these fantastic cheese balls, accompanied by a cup of Colombian coffee of course. I ate so many of them, I could not get up from the couch for a while. Try them, you‚Äôll thank me for it ūüôā

Like many Colombian recipes there are many variations and every cook has its own.I am not a professional baker, but try to recreate the food I miss from my home country.

All the quantities and baking directions are in the printable recipe card at the bottom of the post.

Yuca Flour: You will find here in the United States as Tapioca flour in a lot of supermarkets or online.

Precooked Cornmeal: Also known as masarepa.

Queso Fresco: In Colombia we use quesito, but here in the US I use farmer cheese or queso fresco.

Feta Cheese: Mixing feta cheese with queso fresco gives the perfect flavor and texture to this pandebono recipe.

Egg: I recommend using cage free eggs.

Baking Tips

*I like to use a food processor to mix the dough, but you can do it by hand if you prefer. Start by mixing the tapioca flour and precooked cornmeal in a bowl, then, in another bowl, combine the cheeses and the egg. Add the flour mixture to the cheese and mix well using your hands until well combined.

*The dough is sticky, I recommend oiling your hand to roll the bread.

*You can bake the pandebonos immediately after making them or store them in the fridge until ready to bake. I like to keep them in the fridge to settle for at least 15 minutes before baking.

*If you want the pandebono to have a more round shape  use a  muffin pan to keep them in shape.
