Ingredients :

1 1/4 cups water

2/3 cup butter, cubed

1 1/2 cup plain flour

2 tsp mustard powder

1 tsp powdered cinnamon

4 eggs

3/4 cup grated Cheddar

Filling :

1 packed cup Camembert

a little milk

1 tsp fresh chervil, chopped

6 fresh plums, stoned and finely chopped

Sauce :

10 oz can red plums

1/2 tsp powdered cinnamon

1 tsp chopped fresh chervil, plus a few sprigs to garnish

Method :
  1. To make the profiteroles, put the water into a saucepan and add the butter.
  2. Gently melt the butter, then bring to the boil.
  3. As soon as this happens, sieve in the flour, mustard powder and cinnamon.
  4. Beat hard with a wooden spoon until the mixture comes away from the sides of the pan.
  5. Leave to cool for 10 minutes, then beat in the eggs, one at a time.
  6. Add the grated Cheddar, and beat until glossy.
  7. Use a large nozzle to pipe blobs about 1 in across on a greased cookie sheet.
  8. Bake at 400F for 20 minutes.
  9. Cool on a wire rack.
  10. Chop the Camembert in small pieces and put in a food processor.
  11. Add a little milk and the chervil, and blend to a smooth paste.
  12. Remove from the food processor and add the fresh plums.
  13. Also make the sauce while the pastries are cooling.
  14. Drain the canned plums and pit them if necessary.
  15. Add them to the cinnamon and chervil in the food processor and blend to a fairly smooth purée.
  16. Assemble the profiteroles by halving them and placing some of the Camembert mixture inside.
  17. Place the profiteroles on individual plates and dust with a little cinnamon.
  18. Serve the sauce separately.

Most people are familiar with chocolate profiteroles, but this savory version is just as delicious and makes an attractive starter.
