200 ml. (5 fl. oz) water
100 grams (2 oz) butter
120 grams (2,8 oz) plain flour
A pinch of salt
3 large eggs, beaten
110 grams finely shredded cheddar cheese
To make the dough:
Preheat your oven to 180 C (350F) fan-forced.
Add water and butter into a medium sized saucepan and bring to the boil over medium high heat. Add the flour and salt into the saucepan all at once and start beating with a wooden spoon until the batter thickens and begins to pull away from sides of the pan.
Remove from the heat and add the eggs one at a time, mixing until batter is completely smooth. Add cheese and mix to combine.
Line a baking tray with parchment paper.
Put the batter into a piping bag and pipe it into medium size round balls, as you leave room between the profiteroles.
Bake for about 30 minutes or until crisp and golden brown on the outside.
Serve warm or cold with your favorite dip.
