For choux pastry

Mix water, salt and butter into a medium pot. Place on induction level 6 or medium heat for gas. Once the butter has melted, add the flour and stir all ingredients for 5 minutes.

Remove from heat and place in a mixer. Using a whisk attachment, mix on medium, add the eggs 1 at a time and mix until all combined.

Heat your oven to 160 degrees with your CircoTherm® function.

Splash a little water onto your universal tray and then place baking paper over it (the water will help to adhere to the paper to the tray). Use a large spoon to put onto the tray.

Cook for 45 minutes. Once cooked, remove from oven and cut open the choux pastry (this will help the pastry dry out).
