I’m back!!!!! and it feels great… I missed all of you so much. It was as if a part of me stayed behind when we left on our short vacation. Today I had to answer a gazillion emails so I stopped by on some of your sites, but could not stay long enough to leave comments.
From tomorrow I’ll be back. I did not have a very exciting holiday, but I did get time to spend with my family and just to take a breather sometimes gives a whole new perspective on life…..

I have a short recipe for you today, but the possibilities are endless. These Cheese Puffs are great for breakfast, lunch boxes, teatime and even a late night snack. I would even try the batter on a stew as dumplings…….
I simply served mine as a light lunch with fresh watercress , cream cheese and Smoked Rainbow Trout.


Cheese Puffs
(Recipe yields 12 muffins)

2 cups flour
2 cups cheese(strong cheddar), grated
4 x 5ml baking powder
salt and pepper
1/2 tsp dry mustard powder
2 eggs, beaten

Mix all ingredients, except milk. Add enough milk to make a thick lumpy batter. Spoon into muffin pans and bake for 12-15min at 180 C.

You can add the following to these muffins:
– chopped herbs eg. chives, parsley, spring onions
– chopped bacon bits
– corn
– grated parmesan cheese

    Cheese puffs are so addictive, especially when still warm from the oven.

  21. Jaime 12 October 2008 at 9:34 pm #

    those are sooooo cute. perfect for a party!

  22. Trixi 14 October 2008 at 6:28 pm #

    As promised, I baked these on the weekend and my kids loved it. Didn’t dress it as fancy as yours though. I think this can make a great bookclub snack and it’s so quick and easy.

  23. Jeanne 21 October 2008 at 1:34 am #

    How easy is that!! I also have to apologise for having been so scarce as I was also on holiday and vowed NOT to be glued to the computer every day… I did come back from the USA with some mini silicone muffin cups that would be perfect for baking these in…
