What could be better than a delicious cream-filled fried cream puff? Here is a preparation that takes us straight back to childhood, a dessert that tastes like rides, fairs, and amusement parks.
Preparation: 45 minutes
Cooking: 10 minutes
Total Time: 55 minutes
Servings: 6 People


  • Stand Mixer
  • Deep Frying Pan


  • 250 gr Water
  • 150 gr Butter
  • 200 gr Flour
  • 300 gr Eggs
  • 5 gr Salt

For Deep Frying

  • 2 l Canola Oil (or other deep frying oils)



  • Bring water, salt, and butter to a boil until butter is completely melted.
  • Add the flour and cook for about 2min while stirring.
  • Pour the dough into the stand mixer bowl and turn a few seconds to lower the temperature.
  • Start adding the eggs slowly at medium speed, taking care to allow each addition to be absorbed before going on.
  • When the mixture will have the right consistency (making it fall with the spatula, it forms a triangle)
  • Shape the puff with a pastry bag on greaseproof paper and flip the sheet in oil at 165°-170°C (329°F - 338°F).
  • Remove the paper as soon as it releases from the puffs and continue baking the them until golden brown.
  • Drain from the oil and fill with custard. Finish with a sprinkling of granulated sugar.
