Recipe's preparation

  1. Preheat oven to 220°C. Grease a 24-hole mini muffin tray and set aside.

  2. Place cheese into mixing bowl and grate 10 sec/speed 9.

  3. Add all remaining ingredients and blend 20 sec/speed 8.

  4. Scrape down sides of mixing bowl with spatula and blend for a further 5 sec/speed 8.

  5. Fill each muffin mould three-quarters full with batter. Bake for 12-15 minutes (220°C), or until puffy and just lightly browned.

  6. Remove from oven and leave to cool in tin for a few minutes before serving warm.


Batter can be stored in the refrigerator for up to 1 week.

Thermomix Model

  • Appliance TM 5 image
    Recipe is created for
    TM 5
    If you are using a Thermomix® TM6 measuring cup with your Thermomix® TM5:
    For cooking (simmering) at temperatures of 95°C or above (200°F), the simmering basket should always be used instead of the TM6 measuring cup, as the TM6 measuring cup fits tightly in the lid. The simmering basket rests loosely on top, is steam-permeable, and also prevents food spatter from the mixing bowl.
    Please note that the TM5 mixing bowl has a larger capacity than the TM31 (capacity of 2.2 liters instead of 2.0 liters for TM 31). Recipes for the Thermomix TM5 may not be cooked with a Thermomix TM31 for safety reasons without adjusting the quantities. Risk of scalding by spraying of hot liquids: Do not exceed the maximum filling quantity and observe the filling level markings of the mixing bowl!

    Absolutely beautiful different from anything I've tried before, so delicious and a great alternative to toast with soup. Will try other variations as described by previous commentators when I next make them.

    Llove these! Easy, delicious and gluten free! I have made them egg free before using flax meal substitute another time made dairy free with almond milk, vegan cheese... they worked well but nothing compares to real cheese! Haha.

    Just wondering if these will work if light ilkis used rather than full cream?

    Lynsiej: Thank you. I will try to re-heat them in my convection oven (a bit like an airfryer)

    These are fabulous- so nice when eaten warm from the oven. Crisp on the outside and soft on the inside. Will try some of the variations others have mentioned in the next batch.

    This recipe is AWESOME. We have made it so many times and it is always a hit. Never lasts more that a couple of hours as everyone keeps coming back for more.

    These are one of my favourite recipes!

    My variations:
    * Use vintage cheddar
    * Use tapioca starch instead of arrowroot flour as it’s more cost effective.
    * Use 2tsp vegetable stock paste in place of salt
    * Add 2tsp crushed garlic
    * Use 100g pouring cream and 60g water in place of milk (I first did this as we don’t have milk usually, but really improves flavour
    * Add 4x rashers of finely diced middle bacon once recipe is complete. 20sec/Counter-clockwise operation"Counter-clockwise operation" 2.5
    *For my oven I reduce cooking temperature to 180•C and increase cooking time to 15min

    These variations make enough mixture for two of the rose gold small muffin trays.
