The recipe we present to you is for pates a choux bun. Even if it is not typically Icelandic we just love it so much and I actually think it is becoming more popular than the regular old yeast sweet bun.
Pates a choux bun
250 ml water (or water and milk 50/50)
1-2 tsp sugar
- Water, butter, salt and sugar heated in a saucepan until the butter is melted and the water boils.
- Remove the pot from the hot stove.
- Place the flour in the water and stir well until the dough forms a ball and is not sticky.
- Let the dough cool a bit before you mix in the eggs.
- Beat the eggs apart, mix the eggs in the batter a little each time. You can use a stand mixer or mix the eggs in by hand. Make sure the dough is not too thin so that it is saucy, it needs to hold its shape relatively well when you have piped it, you may not need all the eggs - I only used three.
- Put the dough in a piping bag or use 2 tablespoons to put the dough on the baking sheet. .
