    Preheat the oven to gas 5/190C/170C fan. For choux puffs, place a dot of choux on each corner of a baking tray, and place a square of parchment on it, sticking it down with the choux. Let the choux rest for around 15 minutes, covering with a tea towel. Brush the cream puffs with a beaten egg. Bake the cream puffs for 25-35 minutes.

    For churros or choux doughnuts, deep fry them in neutral oil heated to 180C - there should be enough oil so that they can be submerged - and pipe in the choux pastry, in a swirl. Try to make about 3-4 large swirls. Some parts may fall of when flipping, don't worry, it will still be delicious. Flip after about 2mins or until golden brown and crispy on both sides. Remove with tongs and place on a plate lined with kitchen paper.
