Everyday Baking – Chocolate Orange Profiteroles

OK, so these yummy profiteroles may not be on the menu every day (although I wouldn’t blame you if they were – they’re delicious!). But as a treat these chocolate orange choux buns are a nice way to have a special dessert. This is my second attempt at profiteroles and luckily they came out as they should – little light puffs of pastry :) (I say luckily because I believe if you don’t have the natural skill for pastry (like me) but can follow a recipe (like me) then you’ve got a 50/50 chance of it working out as it should and this time luck was on my side!)

They are filled with whipped cream and a little orange extract but you can also use a small amount of orange juice and the zest or even a little orange liquor. Do the same thing with the chocolate sauce and pour over whilst still warm and they taste like a well known orange flavoured chocolate haha! And as Dawn French is presumably not eating them anymore after her weight loss, these aren’t Dawn’s, they’re mine! :)
