280g cake flour
380g eggs (about 7)
Melt butter and water together in a pan
Aim to get the butter melted just as the mix starts to boil
Dump in the flour all at onceMix in the flour (beat like moer with a wooden spoon) until homogenous
Cook until the mixture pulls away from the sides of the pot
Allow to cool slightly
Here’s where this departs from normal recipes…..
Most say beat eggs in one by one with a wooden spoon….Good luck unless you have seriously large arms
I dump it into the bowl of a mixer fitted with a dough hook
Add the eggs one by one, making sure they well mixed in before adding the next one
Carry on mixing until the dough is soft and shiny and smooth.
Now, it can be baked, buts thats for another post.
What I normally do is load the dough into a piping bag fitted with a 15mm star tip and pipe 25mm lengths straight into 180C deep oi
lFry until puffed up and set (golden brown)
Roll in cinnamon sugar and serve hot with icecream
