Choux pastry is light, fluffy, delicious and used in lots of sweet pastry treats like chocolate eclairs and profiteroles. Here’s our easy-to-follow choux pastry recipe


  • 100g (3 1/2oz) plain flour
  • Pinch of salt
  • 75g (2 1/2 oz) butter, cut into cubes
  • 3 medium eggs, whisked
  • 200ml (7 floz) water


  1. Sift the flour and salt into a bowl. Melt the butter with the water, bring to the boil, then remove from the heat.
  2. Tip in all the flour and beat with a wooden spoon until the mixture forms a thick paste.
  3. Return pan to the heat and beat until a smooth, dry ball forms, which leaves the sides of the pan clean. Remove from heat and cool.
  4. Gradually beat in the eggs, using a hand-held electric mixer. The paste is now ready to use.
