I made cream puffs a few years ago and wanted to make them again and followed your instructions. For some reason they didn't puff up - were more flat and the taste of egg was pretty strong. Not sure what happened...have you ever had that happen when they don't puff up? I tried asking my mom about it - she mentioned using egg whites....I'm not sure.

Mine did this too, but only because I added all ingredients into bowl at once, and needed to seperate ingredients again, and they didnt do so well, and didnt rise, and were very dense blobs.

Hi Holly,
hmm, sorry they didn't work out.
I'm not sure what the contributing factors are. I've made them in very arid environments and now here in the south where it's humid and haven't had trouble either place.
If the dough didn't sit out long enough before adding the eggs, there's a chance the eggs cooked a bit in the dough and not puffed in the oven. So, maybe try letting the dough sit longer than 2 minutes before adding the eggs.
Hope your next try works out perfectly!
Happy New Year,
Nat :)
Thanks Nat! :) Maybe my eggs were too large and the batter was more liquidy....not sure. I definitely let them sit before adding the eggs though...so I don't think it was that. I'll have to try it again sometime and see how it goes! Thank you - they look delicious!
Mmmm just had them for dessert, so good!

I tried a variation of these and found that due to my oven having hotspots some rose well and others flopped. A valuable lesson learned though. Thanks for this.

Start at 400 degrees Fahrenheit for 10 minutes,
Then turn down the oven to 350 degrees for the next 20 minutes.
oh come on, they're called Profiteroles even in the english language. Totally lush though. I made some for christmas day desert, yum. I think yours came out a little better though, I must get a piping bag though too.
