Cheese Puffs

I Make Cheese Puffs

One of my favourite things growing up was when the Wam would make cheese puffs. Something relatively simple to make but absolutely moreish. I could eat the entire tray of puffs myself in about 3 minutes flat. They are light and fluffy and have the perfect burst of cheese in each bite. Totally addictive and probably my earliest memory of comfort food.

I decided to make a batch, you know as you do on a Sunday afternoon when you’re by yourself 😉

Easy peasy lemon squeezy – it is a recipe that the Wam got from a lady in Swakopmund in 1980. So it is tried and tested and well worth the minimal effort.

What you’ll need – a muffin tin that has been greased

1 cup of flour, 1 cup of milk, 1 cup of grated cheese, a teaspoon of baking powder and pinch of salt
You can also add in 1 egg and a bit of peri-per / chili flakes

Bang that all in a bowl, give it a mix and spoon into the muffin tin. Stick that in the oven which has been preheated to approx 200 degrees C and bake for 10-12 minutes.

And eat! I like to have one as soon as it comes out the oven, piping hot and leaves me wanting more!

    Well, YOUR mom taught you well – those are way better than any I make! Yum! And the cool thing is you can leave out the egg if you don’t have one.
