cheese puffers

I’ve never really thought about what would happen if a muffin and a popover had a baby, but apparently it would be a Cheese Puffer. Made like a popover that’s baked in a muffin tin, these are heavy on the cheddar cheese. I guess that cheddar-weight is why they don’t really “popover,” but they are custardy, with melty cheese pockets (I used my favorite Trader Joe’s Unexpected Cheddar) and bits of chopped scallion on the inside, and a beautiful golden brown crust. I scaled back the recipe to just get these four…two were had with chili one night, and the other two with eggs in the morning.

If you don’t have the book Baking with Dorie: Sweet, Salty & Simple by Dorie Greenspan, get it and join us as we bake through it every second and fourth Tuesdays! Don’t forget to check out the rest of the TWD Blogroll and all the other participation deets over on Tuesdays with Dorie!

  1. Perhaps the German flour is too weak to enjoy those. Glad you liked them

  2. These look good! You were very busy baking both recipes!

  3. Didn’t these smell good while baking?! We had these with a repeat of our roasted butternut soup!

  4. Aren’t these lovely? Love the sound of them with chili!

  5. Chili made a good go-along. I made these for an outdoor lunch with friends. They were loved by all.

  6. Oh, I love the color that you got on yours. I didn’t scale back as Mark assured me that he wanted to eat a lot of them (this guy can eat and never gain an ounce, it’s truly disgusting, lol)…so he ate 5 out of the gate and another 5 the next day and I did eat two. They were that good. I will go for the color you got next time, c’est beau!
