Mr. Nicholas, with his post: Apple Muffins, on his blog: Intelliblog.

The shot above is really tempting me. I love muffins and this looks like something I'd love to sink my teeth into! If you're curious how Mr. Nick made those, then don't hesitate: click on the shot!

I was buying our supplies and waiting for my turn, when I happened to look behind the package of flour on my cart; there was a recipe for Cheese Puffs and I got curious. I got most of the ingredients, so here's my Cheese Puffs!

Ingredients: (Adapted from the recipe behind Magnolia's All Purpose Flour)

  • 1 1/2 c all purpose flour
  • pinch salt
  • 1 tbsp paprika
  • 1 c water
  • 1/2 c butter
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 medium-sized red onion (diced and sauteed)
  • 1/2 c cheese (diced)


  • Preheat oven toaster (or an oven, to 200 degrees celsius). Grease baking sheets and set aside.
  • Sift together flour, salt and paprika. In a medium saucepan, bring water and butter to a boil over medium heat.
  • Remove from fire and add flour mixture. Mix until a thick paste is formed. Cool for around 5mins then add eggs, one at a time. Mix well.
  • Add sauteed red onions and cheese. Mix until well blended. If too wet, add more flour.
  • Shape dough into 1-inch balls and place on greased baking sheets. Bake for 8-10mins. Place aluminum foil over balls midway to avoid burning (in my case, since I used an oven toaster). Once fully puffed, remove the foil and wait until golden brown. Delicious when served warm. 

Honestly, I had no idea how it would turn out. I was just curious. Surprise: I liked it! I had to use sauteed onions, though...since I didn't have any spring onions (which was on the original recipe). It was savoury, as expected. Am no expert, but I think it would be lovely with jam. Maybe. :)

Cheese puffs look yummy. Also try the Brazilian style with tapioca flour. It's called pao de queijo. They're cheesy and a bit makunat. Sarap.

I love it when one can bake using the oven toaster. We don't have an oven, so I will try this using oven toaster, too. Question... is it just fine to add hot water+butter to the dry ingredients? Di ba siya maluluto from the heat of the water?

Thanks for featuring the muffins, Maiylah.
The cheese puffs sound nice and simple and look delish.

@Jenn: i think it helps with the cooking, Jenn. at least parang pre-cooked na sya. just make sure you let it cool down a bit before adding the eggs.
