    Choux pastry

    Bring the water, butter, sugar and salt to the boil, reduce the heat. Add the flour all at once, stir with a wooden spoon for approx. 2 mins. until a smooth dough is formed which separates from the base of the pan. Remove the pan from the heat. Using the dough hook on a hand mixer, gradually stir in the eggs; the dough should be soft but not runny. Transfer the choux to a piping bag with a smooth nozzle (approx. 14 mm in diameter). Pipe approx. 24 walnut-sized blobs onto a baking tray lined with baking paper, ensuring they are well spaced out.
