Profiteroles

Prep and cook time: 30 mins to 1 hour

Serves: 4-6

Ingredients
50g butter or margarine
150ml water
65g plain flour, sifted
2 medium eggs, beaten
175g plain chocolate
150ml water
5ml spoon instant coffee powder
125g sugar
5ml spoon icing sugar, sifted
2-3 drops vanilla essence
170ml cream whipped

Method
Melt fat in a pan, add the water and bring to boil. Add the flour all at once and beat the until the mixture leaves the sides of the pan. Cool slightly, then add the eggs a little at a time, beating vigorously.

Put the mixture in a piping bag, fitted with a plain 1 cm nozzle and pipe small mounds on a dampened baking sheet.

Bake in a preheated hot oven 220C, 425F, Gas Mark 5, and bake for a further 20 to 25 minutes until golden. Make a slit in the side of each bun and cool on a wire rack.

To make the sauce: gently melt together the chocolate, 2 x 15ml spoons of the water and the coffee in a small pan. Add the remaining water and sugar and heat gently, stirring until dissolved and simmer uncovered for 10 minutes. Leave to cool.

To make the filling: fold the sugar and essence into the cream. Pipe or spoon a little into each profiterole.

Pile the profiteroles on a serving dish. Pour over chocolate sauce.
