Profiteroles are an impressive dinner party dessert and really easy to serve up; make the Choux Pastry days in advance; then just fill them with cream or custard; add a rich and runny chocolate sauce and serve.

This gluten free choux pastry recipe is light, airy and crispy on the outside. Perfect for eclairs, profiteroles, cream puffs and other decadent treats.
