Ingrédients :

  • 1 cup of water
  • 1 stick unsalted butter
  • 1 pinch of salt
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 spoon of crème anglaise
  • Chocolate sauce
  • Ice cream
  • Confectionners sugar

PRéparation :

  1. Preheat oven to 400°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment.
  2. In a medium saucepan, combine 1 cup of water, 1 stick unsalted butter and a pinch of salt. Bring to a boil over high heat, then reduce heat to medium. Add 1 cup all-purpose flour, stirring vigorously with a wooden spoon until dough pulls away from the sides of the pan, about 2 minutes.
  3. Transfer dough to a large mixing bowl. Add 4 large eggs, one at a time, beating mixture vigorously with a wooden spoon in between. The dough should be shiny and smooth. Don’t over-stir, which can prevent puffing.
  4. Using two spoons, scoot a mound of dough about 1-1/2 inches in diameter and place on parchment-lined baking sheet. Repeat with remaining dough, placing mounds about an inch apart.
  5. Dip your finger in water then smooth the top of each mound. Bake until lightly browned, puffed and firm to the touch, about 20 to 25 minutes.
  6. Remove to a baking rack and let cool completely. Using a serrated knife, slice each puff in half horizontally.
  7. Spoon a pool of crème anglaise onto the center of the plate. Set the bottoms of three puffs on top and crown each with a scoop of ice cream. Add tops, drizzle with chocolate sauce, and sprinkle with toasted sliced almonds. Shower with confectioners sugar.
