Puddings Chocolate Profiteroles (trial recipe No. 1)

Hiya

I thought I would trial out a Chocolate Profiterole recipe.

See what you think as I have photographed them "warts and all".

Some sank and most were a bit, well , full of holes . They taste scrummy however.

I just need to master a non-hole approach.

I made 24 and without chocolate that works out at just under 1.5 syns each. With chocolate it goes to 2 syns each, not bad really!!!!

For those that don't think it a total disaster here is my recipe:

Choux Pastry:-

200ml water
1/2 tsp sweetener
85g I can't believe it's not butter light
1 pinch salt
113g plain flour, sifted
3-4 medium egg

Filling
I used quark mixed with sweetener and vanilla essence . I am sure a tiny amount of squirty light cream when synned works well too

Topping
50g milk choc chips melted and mixed with 1.5 tblsp water

Put butter, water and sweetener in a pan
On a low light cook until butter has melted

Remove from heat and stir in flour and salt. Whisk until combined

Pour mixture into a bowl and leave for 10-15 minutes

Whisk eggs together

Pour these in slowly and mix well

Frylight 2 cupcake trays ( I think papercases would work well) and place 3 dessert spoon amounts into each - this should use batter up

Put in a preheated oven 200 C/ 400 F/ GM6 / 170 Fan Ass. For 15-25 mins

Remove then prick each on top and return to oven for 5 mins.

Once cool fill ( I got very messy) and then dribble melted chocolate ( mixed with water) on top

If anyone can help me perfect them I would be eternally grateful. :)

Some sunk a bit and looked like a Yorkshire so I just filled the hole and covered in choc lol

Hmmm not sure hun. Would piping the mixture onto a baking tray sort the 'hole' situation out I wonder?? xx

Mixture was very runny like liquid - maybe that's the problem?? Maybe less water to make fewer profiteroles - but syn value will increase - oooohhh dunno

Try this recipe hun as i made some a couple of days ago and they didnt sink or anything :)

will easly make 25 rolls at 1 syn each

56 g (2 oz) flora extra light (5 syns)
150 ml (¼ pint) water
112g (4 oz) Plain Flour (20 syns)
3 medium eggs, lightly beaten

1 Place fat in water and melt over gentle heat, then bring to boil.
2 Remove from heat and stir in flour.
3 Return to heat, stirring until mixture forms a ball in middle of pan.
4 Transfer to a large bowl to cool.
5 Thoroughly beat the eggs into the cooled mixture, a little at a time with a wooden spoon or electric whisk.
Make sure water is boiling before adding flour, otherwise a thin paste will form.

When cooled off
1 Heat oven to 200ºC, 400ºF, Gas Mark 6. frylight 2 or 3 baking trays, then run under cold tap leaving a film of water on trays.
2 Using 2 teaspoons place walnut sized mounds of Choux Pastry well-spaced out on prepared baking trays.
3 Bake for 20-25 minutes until well risen, brown and firm. Slit sides to let steam escape. Cool on wire rack. Then fill with anchor light or quark etc x

Hi Honey,

The mixture was so liquidy it would only hold in muffin tin iykwim. I guess it could fill a baking tray and be cut??

I revisited some websites and they say the butter water mix should be brought to the boil and then get the flour in asap. Some stay beat on a heat and others say remove! The ones I made were huge - others make 30 smaller ones so syns reduce again.
Let me know how yours goes

Just had a thought- would silken tofu whizzed with sweetener and vanilla work?? Or is that food abuse?

Right i made profiteroles for pudding tonight, and YUMMY :)





I used a choux pastry recipe i had used many times before, just using clover lighter instead of butter.
*** possible issues may have been occuring using a low fat spread that is too low in fat - check if yours says suitable for home baking)
Whole recipe including filling and sauce is 29 making 3 profiteroles 3.5 syns
For the choux pastry -
75g plain flour
pinch salt
150ml water
50g low fat marge ( make sure its suitable for baking - Flora light is NOT - i use clover lighter - 6.5syns per 28g)
2 eggs well beaten

Sift flour and salt TWICE
put water and low fat spread in a saucepan and gently heat til spread melts, then bring to a rapid boil
lower heat and tip in flour and mix well until a ball forms and leaves sides of pan clean
remove from heat and cool slightly, then gradually beat in the eggs ( keep beating - its looks like it has gone wrong ans split to start with, but keep beating. Think of it as body magic...lol)

Use immediatly.

I used a piping bag to pipe 24 choux buns on a tray. leave gaps between them as they need space to puff out.
Bake for 20 - 25 mins at 220c until golden.
remove and make a slit in each to let steam out and return to oven, switched off for 5 mins to dry out. cool on a wire rack.

Filling
1/2 tub Quark
3tbsp LF fromage frais
1 sachet options white choc
sweetner to taste

beat all ingredients together and pipe into cool choux buns

Chocolate sauce

14g cocoa powder
sweetner to taste ( equivelant to 28g sugar)
100ml milk
4g low fat spread
place all ingredients in a pan and heat until melted, bring to boil and boil for 2 mins until coats back of spoon ( keep stirring)

Honey you are a star!!!!

How big were yours?? Mine were huge!

My mistake ( or Anthony Worrall-thompsons) was that the water was not brought to the boil!! But I will try again this weekend as delish!! Mine worked out at 2 syns each and I think I need to invest in a metal piping 'bag' as quark loses water through a normal bag!

Cheers hun

i just made mine normal size profiteroles. remember they puff up a lot through cooking, so in the raw state they were about the size of a walnut( in its shell)

I just used a plasticy piping bag. I never have any issues with quark being watery?? i added some yogurt to thin it a little. It was the conscitency of thick cream.
I have also now frozen the rest that we restrained ourselves from eating, the recipe i used said they could be frozen, so will see how they are when defrosted.
