How to Make Choux Pastry For Profiteroles or Eclairs

If you have prepared the ingredients needed, now time to start cooking. There are 12 steps you must follow to make Choux Pastry For Profiteroles or Eclairs in your home by yourself.

    Step 1
  • combine butter, water, sugar and salt in a large pan. bring to the boil occasionally
  • Step 2
  • As soon as boiling, remove the pan from the heat. add the flour all at once and beat vigorously with a wooden spoon
  • Step 3
  • return the pan to a medium heat. stir continuously until the mixture comes away from the pan and forms a doughy ball. remove from the heat and leave to cool
  • Step 4
  • add a dribble of the egg and beat well with a wooden spoon or electric mixer. fully combine until adding another dribble. continue until the mixture becomes a smooth and shiny paste that holds its shape. do not add too much egg at a time. mix very well all the time. If the mixture is smooth and shiny before using all the egg then stop. don't make it too runny
  • Step 5
  • put baking paper on about two trays and preheat the oven to 220°c/425°f
  • Step 6
  • profiteroles: using two teaspoons or a piping bag, shape 1 inch blobs spaced well apart
