I made them for a large group of people after a big dinner.  They told me they couldn’t fit another thing in, and that I shouldn’t bother with dessert. Only to see them finish off a full gastronome tray of them.  Very moreish indeed 😉

  • Place water, salt and butter into the TM bowl and cook for 10 minutes at 100℃ on speed 3 with the MC on
  • Add the flour and mix for 30 seconds on speed 4, or until you see the pastry coming away from the sides of the bowl. Set bowl aside to all the pastry to cool for approximately 10 minutes
  • Once the mixture is cooked, add the eggs to the mixture by dropping them one egg at a time onto rotating blades for 30 – 40 seconds on speed 5. Should be dropping consistency.
  • Spoon the mixture into a piping bag fitted with a star nozzle. When the oil is at temperature, pipe out long 10cm lengths into the oil. You can use scissors or a knife to cut the lengths off neatly if you are having a problem with them releasing. Deep fry, until golden brown. Remove with a pair of tongs onto a tray lined with paper towel.

Notes

Make sure your oil is hot before you start.  
If you don’t have a piping bag you can always dollop them in with a tablespoon.

  1. for the step of adding water, salt and butter into the TM bowl and cook for 10 minutes at 100c. I checked other TM method is 2 minutes. Can you please explain any reason to cook longer time?
