Weekend Baking (Raspberry Filled Profiteroles with White Chocolate)

I made these for the first time yesterday. They are so yummy and perfect for those with a sweet tooth.

Sift the flour onto baking paper. Then melt the butter, water, sugar and milk in a pan. Once melted, bring to the boil and then quickly take of the heat and pour in the flour.

Beat the mixture until it forms a dough and return to the heat for a minute or so. Then leave to cool for a few minutes.

Beat in the egg and vanilla essence until the dough is smooth and pipe into balls onto a baking sheet. Don’t worry if the mixture spreads a bit and seems too running to make balls, add a little more flour and spoon on-they should still rise.

Cook for 20-25 minutes until risen and golden brown. Immediately make a hole in the bottom of each before allowing to cool.

To make the filling, blender or process together the raspberries, lemon juice and icing sugar.

In a separate bowl, whip the double cream until stiff.

Then fold 4 tbsp of the raspberry juice into the cream and pipe the mixture into the bottom of the profiteroles.

Melt the white chocolate in a bowl over a pan of hot water and then drizzle over the profiteroles along with the remaining raspberry juice.

Done!
