Inspired by Dainty Chefs

Cream puffs are simply elegant! To make them even more wow, serve them drizzled with warm chocolate sauce and serve 2 to 3 per person.

[Total: 1 Average: 5]


  • 1 cup/250mL Dainty's All-Purpose gluten free Flour
  • 1/2 cup/125mL Water
  • 1/2 cup/125mL Milk
  • 1/2 cup/113g Butter
  • 1 tsp Sugar
  • 4 large Eggs

Simple Filling

  • 2 cups/500mL 35% Whipping Cream
  • 4 tbsp Sugar
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • Garnish: 1/2 cup/125mL Icing Sugar or warm chocolate sauce for drizzling over top



Preheat oven to 425 F/220 C and line sheet with parchment paper using spray oil.


In a saucepan combine water, milk, butter, sugar, and salt. Bring to a boil over medium. Add in flour and stir continuously with a wooden spoon for 1-3 mins.


Move the single mass formed into a mixer bowl to let cool for 5 mins. (Otherwise your eggs will 'cook' in the next step).


Add in eggs individually, beating on medium-high.


Beat the mixture for about 1min, until dough is fully combined.


Fill a piping bag, without a tip and pipe onto baking sheet moderately sized, portioned to yield about 20 creampuffs.


Bake at 425 F/220 C for 10 mins, then reduce to 325 without opening oven, and bake for 20 mins.


Move to a rack and let cool completely before filling.


Tips: - When adding the eggs, best to wait until first egg is completely incorporated before adding the next one. - Pipe the dough in a straight up and down motion to ensure they are sufficiently sized and symmetrical.


To Fill: Once cooled you can slice the puffs in two horizontally and fill them with cream and put the top back on OR you can put the cream in a piping bag and push the pastry tip into the side of the puff and insert cream until it pushes back.
