Second one sounds good. No frills etc. Do you know how many the recipe makes?

Do you double the b/powder?

sorry, should have added that, no I just add 3 heaped teaspoons to the doubled mixture, as I can taste the b/p. Its a easy recipe and I prefer puffs than muffins

Sorry, but no I don't know how many the recipe makes.It's not one of my recipes, nor one I have used - it appears to be one from the "Muffin Bible" and I've had a look in that book to see if there's any indication re the number of muffins you could expect and there doesn't seem to be any indication for any of the recipes in the whole book.:-))

jessie981, I too make Cheese Puffs and have been very successfully using the following recipe for almost 40 years.

2 cups grated cheese, preferably tasty, but otherwise use edam
1 cup flour
2 tsp baking powder
pinch each ofcayenne pepperandsalt
2 eggs
about ¼ cup milk

Place the cheese into a bowl and, on top of it sift in the flour, baking powder and cayenne pepper.With a fork mix the dry ingredients through the cheese.
Lightly beat the eggs and salt, then add them and the milk to the cheese mixture.Mix together to form a stiff dough like mixture.Using a teaspoon (for cocktail-size puffs) or a soup spoon (recipe makes 9-12 of this size), and allowing room for spreading place the mixture on a greased oven tray.Bake at200°Cforabout 10 minutes.
IMO these are at their very best when served warm but they are very nice when cold too, and providing it is done very carefully, they can be gently reheated in the microwave.:-))
