These are delicious as a light lunch served with cold meat and salad or just as a savoury snack for guests.


  1. Sift dry ingredients and mix in cheese
  2. Break egg into cup and top with milk to 250ml and beat slightly
  3. Add egg to dry ingredients and mix well. If dough is too dry, add a little water. Dough must be soft but still firm.
  4. Grease a muffin tray and bake at 180C for 15 – 20 minutes until golden

They were a little dry and chewy for my taste. Next time I will add a few tablespoons of oil or melted butter and mix just until moistened. For mile-high cooking, reduce baking powder to a tablespoon.

My son came home from primary school and told me all about the cheese puffs. I spent years making up batches of choux puffs and scones. I never thought it would be so easy. He's delighted and I've passed this recipe on to my future daughter-in-law!

My family liked them and they were easy to make. I think that they would be good with breakfast. Thank you for sharing your recipe!
