- Butter – 75 grams
- All purpose flour – 1 cup
- Water – 175 mls
- Salt – ¼ teaspoon
- Eggs – 3 nos
- Whipped cream
To decorate –
- Icing sugar ½ cup
- Hot water 2-3 teaspoons
- Green food color – 1 -2 drops
- Colorful sprinkles
How to –
Pre-heat the oven to 200 C. Sift the flour and set aside.
In a sauce pan add the water and butter and cook over medium heat until the butter is melted and water starts to a boil, turn the heat off and remove the pan from stove.
Add the flour all at once and mix till there are no lumps. Now turn the heat on to medium-low and cook the dough stirring continuously until it starts to leave the sides of the pan. Turn the heat off and move the dough into a bowl of a stand mixer and turn the beater on to low speed. Add the eggs one a time and making sure to mix well after each addition.
Beat till the dough is shinny and smooth enough to drop off from the spoon. Spoon the dough into a piping back fitted with a round tip and pipe the puffs on to a baking tray lined with a baking sheet or mat.
Bake the puffs for 15 mins and then reduce the temperature to 180 C and bake for another 10-15 mins.
Cut the puffs carefully and fill in the whipped cream/icing in the middle and place the other half back.
To Decorate – Mix the icing sugar, water and food color to smooth paste. Spoon the prepared icing sugar on top of the puffs and some colorful sprinkles. Serve warm.
