Makes: 10-15 medium puffs
Ingredients
  • For the cream puffs:
  • Butter, ¼ cup or 58 grams
  • Sugar, ½ teaspoon
  • Water, ½ cup or 120ml
  • Salt, a pinch
  • Flour, ½ cup or 64 grams
  • Eggs, 3 (at room temp)
  • Vanilla Extract, 1 teaspoon
  • Nutella cream:
  • Whipped cream, ½ cup
  • Nutella, 2 tablespoons
  • Top:
  • Whipped cream, ½ cup
  • Nutella, 4 tablespoons (melted)
Method
  1. Cream puffs are made the same way as eclairs. Start by boiling the water, butter, salt and sugar in a large saucepan. Once the ingredients come to a boil, remove the saucepan off the heat and pour the flour in one go. Mix continuously until a dough is formed.
  2. Transfer this dough into a bowl and let it cool down. Once cool, start adding the eggs one by one and mix them in. Once all the eggs are in, add in the vanilla extract. The mixture will be of a good dropping consistency now, so transfer it into a piping bag with your favourite nozzle on.
  3. Before piping prepare a cookie tray by brushing it with butter and lining it with parchment paper. Start piping about 2 inch wide rosettes circles on the parchment. If you think the pastry is too thin, double layer it. Once done, put the tray into the refrigerator to set for about 15 minutes.
  4. Next, brush the pastries with some egg wash on top and bake them in a preheated oven for 12-15 minutes at 180 degrees celsius.
  5. For the Nutella cream: Whip cream until stiff peaks form. Once whipped, add in the Nutella and whisk that in too. Transfer this to a piping bag and refrigerate. In another bowl, whip some more cream (listed under "top") until stiff peaks form and refrigerate this too.
  6. Once the puffs have cooled down, using a knife or something sharp, make a hole at the bottom. Fill the puff with Nutella cream through this holes. Next, dip them in the plain whipped cream and drizzle with melted Nutella.
