 Ingredients List

  • 1 cup water
  • 3 tbsps. butter
  • 1 c. plain flour, sifted
  • 5 medium eggs
  • oil for deep frying
  • caster sugar


Place the water and butter in a saucepan and bring to a boil. When the butter is melted, add the flour all at once and stir until the mixture forms ball and leaves the side of the pan.

Remove from heat, transfer to a mixing bowl and leave to cool for 5 minutes.

Using an electric mixer, beat for 10 seconds before adding the eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. The mixture will seem curdly at the start but will be smooth after all the eggs are added in.

Heat the oil in a pan. When hot, add spoonfuls of the mixture (I used a small ice cream scoop) and fry until well puffed and golden. The balls will turn by itself and split as it fries but you can nudge it with a slotted spoon to fry it evenly.

It is done when it is light (in weight) and golden in colour and have stopped expanding. Remove from the oil and transfer to a kitchen paper lined tray.

Toss in caster sugar. Needless to say, best eaten warm. I'm sure you won't wait long enough anyway.
