Yesterday evening I decided one more time to give a try and make profiterole. I've made them three times and every time I make I have to pray to cookie god for good dough, the right temperature in the oven and so on and so on... However, it's quite simple to make if you follow the right steps.
So what we need for the dough:
100gr of unsalted butter,
1 water glass of flour and 1 glass of water,
1 tea spoon of sugar and 1 tea spoon of salt,
4 room temperature eggs.
Pour the water into a pot, add the butter and leave it until it starts boiling. Add flour and mix carefully until everything turns into a big lump . Take it out into a cool bowl, let it cool down and add 4 eggs, one by one. Mix carefully! Bake it in a 220C oven for 15 min and then reduce the temperature until 190C and bake for another 20 min. Don't open the oven doors!. When the cookies turn yellow, take it out. Leave it until they are cool and add the cream and chocolate on the top!!! Enjoy!!!
If you are lazy as I was yesterday evening, you can use a ready made cream, which takes 3 min to make! A really good friend Dr. Orteker... :) Chocolate source I make by melting 200gr of bitter chocolate, 50ml of milk and a table spoon of butter. It's just a pity that there's no one to eat it at home!!!
