Use a medium-sized pan, and chop the butter into small pieces to make melting quicker and reduce evaporation of the milk and water. Let the dough cool before adding the eggs – if it is too hot, they could scramble. Don’t be tempted to open the oven for the first 20 mins, as this could cause the profiteroles to collapse. The cooked profiteroles can be stored, unfilled, in a cake tin for up to 4 days, or freeze them for up to a month.
