This recipe is so quick and simple using every day ingredients, it is a perfect snack to whip up in less than 20 minutes! You will love my Easy Cheese Puffs recipe
Great for an after school snack, to take a plate for nibbles or when visitors pop in. These can easily be jazzed up by serving with pesto, or cream cheese & salmon or any way you desire! I serve mine with either butter or garlic butter for easy snack – Divine fresh from the oven but tasty cold as well.
This has to be one of the most popular recipes on the blog over the past 3 years. And it is certainly one I make often for our family. Usually we just make them as simple as we can, with a bit of seasoning and some mixed herbs, but you can add more flavours if you like!
These cheese puffs are delicious served with butter or on their own. Gorgeous fresh from the oven or heated up. Best eaten on the day you make them, for our family we would normally double the recipe as they never last long!
This recipe would go perfectly with my Creamy Cauliflower and Brocolli soup – a lovely slow cooker soup that is perfect with these little puffs.
Recently I have had people reach out to me that in their country they would call these something different, perhaps scones or biscuits. What would you call them? Let me know in the comments below.
If you love the look of this what do you think of this cheesy loaf? Made in the slow cooker, something new to try – find the recipe here
If you feel like something savoury this literally takes no more than 20 minutes start to finish! I hope you enjoy these lovely easy Cheese Puffs

Wow. Just made these and they’re amazing. For a novice in the kitchen this recipe was perfect. Will be making a lot of these!!!
Ian Moleta says
Made them tonight with veggie full chicken stew and it was a perfect accompaniment
Carla Gibson says
Do these need to be eaten straight away or can I make them the day ahead
Best eaten on the day they are made but they are ok the next day. However they do not take long at all to make.

Beveley McDonald says
Quick and easy recipe. Made a double batch and like one of the previous commenters added extra flour as I thought it looked and felt a bit sloppy. Turned out great. Gave half to my son and had the rest for myself.
So easy and delicious. I added mustard and garlic and a little too much cayenne ? but went really well with toulouse sausage and red wine casserole. Thank you ?
What do you mean by tasty cheese do you men like cheddar cheese
Yes, it is an aged hard cheddar cheese.
I tried this recepi. I add some chopped bacon to it.yummy. delish.
Can you use gluten free flour for this recipe
Abeil Nicholas says
Omg from the comments I can see that this is an old post. I just made this today 18.07.2021. I can’t believe how easy it was and it tastes great. The parmesan cheese enhanced the flavour!
Do you think I could substitute almond flour for the regular flour?
I have not tested with almond flour sorry, if you do try it be sure to let me know how you get on.
Chris Bone says
This is the best cheese puff recipe ever and we have tried a few! Light, airy, fluffy, used parmesan cheese too. I doubled the recipe and added paprika and for 4 adults and a small toddler we had plenty, although a triple batch would have been demolished as well!
Can you make night before and bake the next day?
I’ve not tried as it’s quite quick to mix up but if you do I’d dollop the mix on the tray as in recipe then in the fridge overnight.
Anne Sheddan says
Great recipe. The baking powder works much better than self raising flour. I added some finely chopped fresh rosemary in the most recent batch. I’ve also added a tiny amount of onion and some finely chopped bacon recently. All good and absolutely great just plain. Thank you.
Amanda Daniels says
I love the ease of this recipe but I have a younger son who hates cheese. Can you suggest a substitute (not apple) that might work? Thanks so much x
Hmm, I’m not sure, cheese makes up such a significant amount of this recipe I’d be inclined to look for another as I’m not sure of a suitable substitute. Possibly a muffin or savoury scone? You’re welcome to test these without cheese and try say zucchini but they make be a bit lacking in flavour.
Is Baking Powder the same as Baking Soda?
No they are different.
Patricia tuffnell says
Really delicious recipe thankyou. It’s a wonderful way to use up mixed ends of cheese!
Amy Chetty says
Hi What can i substitute for teh egg Thank you in advance
I haven’t tried any egg substitutes sorry but there are many listed in online articles.
Made these today and they were delicious- I added some cooked chopped ham and paprika and we both really enjoyed them for lunch 🙂
Mine didn’t rise despite following this recipe to a tee using self raising flour. What did I do wrong? They still taste yummy, just look like splats!
Possibly a little too much liquid to flour. They should hold their shape when you place the batter on the tray.
Delicious and easy!

Oh my goodness this is the only recipe I will use from now on, the look on my grandsons face when he bit into his first was unbelievable best, lightest tastiest, just wonderful. My 9nly fear is that I won’t be able to replicate this alchemy
Delicious! I have one member of the fam that doesn’t eat cheese so I swapped that out for some grated apple – it’s a success!
Love these, wondering if I could freeze them cooked? We travel in our caravan a lot, so simple for pre dinner drinks.
Yes they can definitely be frozen.
Selma Broad says
Love these, can I freeze them, cheers
Yes you can freeze them ☺️
Absolute hit, sooo good! I make it today as “fancy” Mother Day dinner. We love this soup (our favourite broccoli and garlic and herbs in one!) and puffs (so tasty with my herbs)!Thank you!
Wonderful! ☺️ sounds like the perfect meal
Easy and delicious recipe thanks. Served with poached eggs and smoked salmon or bacon.
Can I replace plain flour with self raising flour for this? Because of ppl hoarding flour, i dont have any plain flour but managed to get self raising flour.
Do you think my 20 month old will like this and is it healthy for her with mix veg soup. I can give her to eat this instead of toast 🙂
Lastly if I can use self raising flour, how much baking powder i will have to add for this recipe?
Thank you for your help 🙂
Hi, for this recipe you can definitely just use self raising flour. Remove the baking powder completely. Enjoy. ☺️
Sarah Burkitt says
I absolutely adore this recipe!! The only reason I don’t make it more often is that I wouldn’t fit into my clothes any more!!! Om nom nom!!!
One batch is never enough ☺️
Julie Walls says

Omg these are beautiful. ..I put more flour in it thought it was a bit too slopy for me…brilliant
Thank you! It’s such a great quick recipe ?
Yummy! Didn’t have quite enough milk… but had a whole bottle of cream, so used just used cream instead, most definitely worse for the calories, but my word delish!! I also did half mozzarella cheese 🙂 Thanks for the recipe.
Great! Cream would have made them delicious 🙂
