Plus, you can get creative with these puffs, adding in some diced ham, sautéed red capsicum or even some jalapeños for a nice kick.

  • 1 cup plain flour
  • 3 teaspoons baking powder
  • 2 cups grated tasty cheddar cheese
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 1/2 cup of milk

  2. Gently mix all ingredients together in a bowl.
  3. Drop large spoonfuls onto an oven tray lined with baking paper (you may need two).
  4. Bake for 10-12 minutes until puffed and golden (don't overcook them as they will be dry).
  5. Allow them to cool completely on a wire rack to avoid them sweating before eating.
