Looking through the Rumford Complete Cookbook again this month, I was looking for a different kind of recipe to try. I found this one on Cheese Puffs and thought it sounded good, so I tried it out. They are yummy!!
A great side to a meal or a fun snack!
The Cheese Puffs recipe is on pages 56 and 57 of the Rumford Complete Cookbook. Below is a photo of the recipe that is in the book.
Here is my version of the recipe with some updates:
3/4 c. flour
1/2 c. shredded cheese
salt and pepper to taste
1 tsp. Rumford Baking Powder
1/2 cup milk – I decreased from 1 cup in the cookbook recipe, as it was too liquidy to fry.
vegetable oil, for frying
Deep Fryer to fry puffs in
In a mixing bowl, beat the eggs and mix together with the milk. In a separate bowl mix together the flour, baking powder, and salt and pepper. Add the cheese and mix. Then add to the egg/milk mixture. Stir everything together well. Drop spoonfuls into deep fryer and fry until golden brown. Drain and serve.
These tasted like a fried cheese bread. The kids loved them too! We enjoyed them with marinara sauce and ranch dressing for dipping!
