Basic Choux Pastry

Ingredients:

  • 100ml water
  • 70g unsalted butter
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 0.5 tbsp castor sugar
  • 110g plain flour
  • 3 eggs (about 60g - 63g each with shell)

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 200°C degrees.
  2. Place the water, butter, and salt in a heavy saucepan. Bring to a boil. When the butter is completely melted, remove from the heat. 
  3. Add flour all at once.
  4. On low-medium heat, beat constantly with a wooden spoon until the mixture forms a ball and leaves sides of pan for approximately 3-4 minutes.
  5. Transfer mixture to a stainless steel bowl, use hand mixer to beat for 2-3 minutes on low speed with paddle attachment. This allows it to cool down while mixing.
  6. Turn mixer to medium and add eggs one at a time, beating after each egg.
  7. The batter should be smooth and firm. You know you have added enough eggs when a dollop of batter lifted on a spatula curls over itself and forms a hook. (The dough should be smooth, shiny and as thick and as heavy as mayonnaise)
  8. Spoon pastry into large pastry bag or cookie scoop.
  9. Pipe into s or use small, medium or large scoops to make the shape you need, leaving a few inches between.
  10. Bake at 200°C for 12 minutes, reduce the temperature of the oven to 160°C for 8 minutes or until the outside is golden brown, crisp and dry and they sound hollow.
  11. Remove baking pan from oven and place it somewhere to cool.
  12. Slice each one in half and spread thick with cooled filling.
