Easy Chocolate Profiteroles

Makes 15-20 profiteroles. Original recipe from the Good Housekeeping book.

  1. Preheat the oven to 200ºC (Fan oven). Mark 7 or 220ºC.
  2. Place a medium saucepan on a low heat and melt 50g of butter with 150ml of water. Once the butter has melted (it will look like yellow water) bring the mixture to a rapid boil- it will look like a white froth appearing from one side of the saucepan to the other. Take off the heat.
  3. Add 65g of sifted plain flour straight into the saucepan, along with a pinch of salt. Immediately stir like a crazy person (as fast as you can!) using a wooden spoon. Eventually the mixture will form a ball and come away from the side. Tip the ball of mixture into a bowl and leave to cool for 10 minutes.  Continue reading “Easy Chocolate Profiteroles”
