  • 250ml/8fl oz milk
  • 250g/9oz plain flour
  • 75g/3oz butter
  • 250g/9oz Cheddar cheese, grated
  • 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 3 eggs, beaten salt
  • vegetable oil for deep-frying


  • Warm the milk in a large heavy
    saucepan over a medium heat,
    stirring constantly while gradually
    adding the flour.
  • Add the butter and, once the
    mixture has thickened, remove from
    the heat and mix in the cheese.
  • Add salt to taste, the cayenne and
    the beaten eggs.
  • Allow the mixture to cool. It should
    now be thick enough to shape into
    about 24 balls.
  • Heat the oil in a deep heavy
    saucepan until very hot. Deep-fry
    the balls in batches of about six
    until they are golden brown.
  • Remove from the pan with a slotted
    spoon, drain on kitchen paper and
    serve immediately.
