RECIPE: Chakalaka cheese puffs
Similar to a savoury muffin, these nibbles would be great as padkos, popped into a lunch box or served for brunch
240g (2 cups) cake flour
15ml (1 tbsp) baking powder
5ml (1 tsp) salt
5ml (1 tsp) mustard powder
400g can of chakalaka
500ml (2 cups) grated cheddar cheese
125ml (½ cup) milk
1) Sift cake flour with baking powder, salt, a dash of cayenne pepper and mustard powder. Add cheddar cheese and a drained can of chakalaka. Mix well.
2) Beat 1 egg with milk and 20ml (4 tsp) oil. Fold this into the chakalaka mixture (don't overmix).
3) Half-fill the sprayed openings of a 12-hole muffin tray and bake in a preheated oven at 200°C for about 20 minutes.
4) Serve warm with lots of butter.
