Pan de Bono

      12 Servings


  • 1 cup Yellow Cornmeal, cooked
  • 1/2 cup Tapioca Flour
  • 2 teaspoons Granulated Sugar
  • 2 cups Grated Cheese, either farmer's cheese, Monterey jack or mozzarella
  • 2 large Eggs
  • pinch of Kosher Salt
  • 3 teaspoons Milk, or buttermilk (optional)


  1. Preheat the oven to 400 F and grease a cookie sheet.
  2. Combine the cooked cornmeal, tapioca flour, and sugar in a bowl, then stir in the grated cheese and the eggs. 
  3. Using a wooden spoon, mix well and taste to see if any salt is required. Add as necessary.
  4. Knead the dough until smooth, adding the milk or buttermilk if it seems a bit dry. You need the dough to be soft and pliable.
  5. Cover the dough in plastic wrap and leave to rest for 10 minutes.
  6. Roll pieces of the dough into golf-ball size balls, or shape into rings.
  7. Place the rolls on to the greased cookie sheet and bake for around 20 minutes, until puffed up and golden in color.
  8. Serve warm from the oven.
