Profiteroles

Ingredients

  • 2 oz. cake flour, or your regular flour
  • 1/8 cup water
  • 1 oz. butter
  • 2 large eggs, slightly beaten
  • ¼ cup double cream, whipped
  • 1 oz. confectioner's sugar
  • Some milk for brushing

Procedure

Sift flour on a piece of greaseproof paper. Set aside. In a saucepan, boil water, butter and sugar. Add the flour all at once beating over a low heat, until mixture forms a smooth ball and leave sides of pan clean. Remove from heat and beat in the eggs a little at a time. Beat well until mixture is smooth. Put paste into a piping bag fitted with a ¼ inch plain nozzle.

Make small rounds on a slightly greased baking sheet. Brush with milk. Bake in the oven for 400 degrees F for 15 to 20 minutes, or until risen and brown. Remove from oven, make a small hole in each bun with a sharp knife and return to oven for a few more minutes to dry out. Cool. Fill with whipped cream and sprinkle with the sieved icing sugar. When filling the buns, it is easier to use a piping bag and pipe the cream. Enjoy
