This week I had a try at profiteroles. I wanted something that I could freeze and have recently read somewhere that they're even better after freezing (I also used to love eating the frozen ones out of the freezer in a restaurant I once worked in. Not to be knocked till tried, they're actually quite tasty!).
So I tried Delia's choux recipe first, I was expecting great things really. She's been around a long time now so I thought I could do no wrong. How wrong could I be. I followed the recipe precisely, even getting out my digital scales. They were a bit of a disaster. The mixture was too runny so I added more flour. This did the trick. I placed my greased baking sheet under cold water before spooning on the profiteroles as stated, and they all stuck, agh!!!
I then tried Nigella's recipe. Yes she really is a domestic goddess. They turned out really well. Hooray for Nigella! :0P
