Introduction: 
These Profiteroles are so easy to make. Fill them with cream and cover with chocolate sauce for a decadent, naughty treat!
Notes: 

Makes 22-24 individual profiteroles.

Preparation: 

Before you start, preheat the oven to 200°C/400°F/Gas Mark 6 and line a baking tray with baking paper.

Ingredients: 

50g (2oz) butter
125ml 1/4 pint of water
2 medium eggs (beaten)
65g (2 1/2oz) Juvela Gluten-Free mix

Ingredients for the filling
100g (4oz) milk chocolate* (melted)
1/2 Pint whipped cream
2 tbsp milk or brandy

Method: 
  • Place the fat and water in a saucepan and melt over a gentle heat, then bring to the boil.
  • Remove from the heat and immediately stir in the Mix. Beat well until the mixture forms a ball in the pan.
  • Allow to cool slightly, then gradually add the eggs, beating well after each addition. The dough needs to be a stiff dropping consistency (it may not be necessary to add all of the beaten egg).
  • Place small spoonfuls of the mixture onto the baking sheet and bake in a pre-heated oven for 15 - 20 minutes.
  • When the profiteroles are well risen and golden brown remove from the oven. Make a slit in the side of each profiterole, then leave to cool on a wire rack.
  • Meanwhile make the chocolate sauce: put the chocolate and brandy (or milk) into a heatproof dish over a pan of hot water and heat until melted and a smooth sauce is formed.
  • Fill the profiteroles with whipped cream and pile up on a serving plate. Pour over the chocolate sauce just before serving.
