These delicious choux pastry buns conceal a traditional mixture of apples and cream, and make a soft and surprising tea-time treat. Make sure the apples are completely cool before folding them into the cream or it will separate.
Servings: 16 buns

  • 2 oz butter
  • 2 1/2 oz plain flour sifted
  • pinch of salt
  • 2 eggs beaten
  • 1 lb Bramley apples peeled, cored and sliced
  • 1 oz sugar
  • 5 floz fresh double cream
  • icing sugar


  • Put 150 ml (1/4 pint) water and the butter into a medium saucepan. Heat slowly until the butter melts, then bring to a brisk boil. Lower the heat and tip in all the flour and salt at once.
  • Stir briskly until the mixture forms a soft ball and leaves the side of the pan.
  • Remove from the heat and cool slightly. Gradually add the eggs, a little at a time, beating until the mixture is smooth and shiny.
  • Pipe or spoon 16 buns of the mixture on to a buttered baking sheet. Bake the buns at 200°C (400°F) mark 6 for 10 minutes.
  • Remove from the oven and make a slit in the side of each. Return to the oven for a further 5 minutes. Cool on a wire rack.
  • Poach the apple slices in 150 ml (1/4 pint) water with the sugar for 15 minutes, until soft. Cool.
  • Whip the cream until stiff peaks form. Remove the apple slices from the syrup with a slotted spoon, then fold them into the whipped cream. Split the buns, fill with the apple mixture and dust with sifted icing sugar.
