INGREDIENTS

For about 8 to 10 profiteroles (we usually serve 3-4 profiteroles per person)

 

choux buns:

  • 50cl of milk
  • 7cl water
  • 1 small teaspoon of salt
  • 2 small teaspoons of sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 75g of all-purpose flour
  • 45g of butter

 

Choux bun filling:

  • vanilla ice cream

 

Chocolate sauce topping

  • 150g of chocolate
  • 1 tablespoon of salted butter (or regular butter with a bit of salt on the side)
  • Milk (which you will add gradually until you achieve a nice creamy/syrup consistency)

 

Instructions 

 

Making the Choux

  • Pre-heat the oven to 180°C/360°F.
  • In a pan, mix the milk + water + butter + salt + sugar and heat on the stove until it starts boiling.
  • Take the pan off the stove and add all the flour at once. Mix until you get a paste.
  • Put the pan back on the heat for about 1-2 minutes to “dry” the paste a bit.
  • Take it off the stove and add the 2 whole eggs. Mix until you get a nice and homogenous paste
  • Put the paste in a pastry bag and make 8 to 10 choux on an oven tray covered with baking paper (a silicone plate is even better, if you have one)
  • Cook in the oven for 30 minutes.

Very important: never open the oven during the cooking.

Next, prepare the filling and chocolate sauce

  • Take the vanilla ice cream out of the freezer about 10-15 min before, so it’s soft to scoop out
  • Start preparing the chocolate topping in a pan by melting the chocolate + butter.
  • Adding milk gradually as you go until you reach the good consistency.

Tip: It's better to use a bit too much milk than not enough, otherwise the sauce will dry and make a paste.

Finally...

  • Take the choux out of the oven and leave to cool for about 10-15 minutes.
  • Cut the top 1/3 of the chou and fill it with ice cream.
  • Once all the plates are ready, add the chocolate sauce topping and serve and eat right away! 

 Bon Appétit!
