Pan de Yuca (Cassava Bread)

Serves 12 mini loafs Prep time ~10 mins Baking time ~15-20 mins

I came across a list of the best bread in the world, and when I saw Ecuador's Pan de Yuca was listed as #5, I knew it was a sign to put together a recipe & try it out! Pan de Yuca is typically from the Western part of Ecuador, but has become a popular street food all over the country. Its best to eat it warm, right out of the oven with a cup of coffee :)

My family didn't made this growing up, so I had to reference a few cooking books and other recipes I saw online, and came up with the most delicious + simple cheesy bread you've ever tried in your life!


3 cups of yuca (cassava) flour

4 cups of shredded queso fresco

1 stick of salted butter (room temp)

1 tablespoon of salt

1 tablespoon of baking powder

2 eggs

1/8 cup of milk (as needed)


  1. In a large mixing bowl mix the flour, shredded cheese, baking powder & salt until completely combined.

  2. Next, add in the butter + mix in throughly.

  3. Then, add in the eggs.

  4. The last step is adding the milk as needed. Add in little by little until the dough isn’t sticky and has a sort of plato consistency.

  5. Grease the baking sheet, muffin or loaf pan w/ butter + preheat oven to 400F

  6. Bake for 15-20 mins or until the top of the yuca bread is golden brown
