5Remove from the heat and keep beating until the mixture comes away from the sides of the pan

6Tip into a large bowl and let it cool for about 10 minutes

8You want a smooth glossy batter

9Put the mixture into a piping bag and pie out small balls . With a wet finger press down the "tail" left by piping

11When risen and golden take out of the oven and make a small hole in the bottom of each one

12Switch off the oven and put the profiteroles back on the baking sheet upside down .
