How Many Calories In Orville Redenbacher's

Delicious Sunday "windbag" or "Chouquettes"

I know, I know, it is not Sunday just yet but if you want to make this for Sunday you better start thinking about it today. Here is my version of "Windbeutel" (in German) or "Chouquettes" (in French). Anybody know the English word for it? Anyway wish you all a wonderful weekend.


1/4 liter water
1 pinch of salt
75 gr. butter (unsalted)
180 gr. flour (not selfraising)
4 to 5 eggs
whipping cream

Bake for 20 to 25 minutes at 220°C.

Bring water to a boil with salt and butter. Take pot from the stove and add flour all at once. Put pot back on the stove and stir quickly until the dough builds a lump (I know this doesn't sound very professional but I think you get what I mean). Then move dough into a bowl and add 1 egg immediately. Let dough rest until cooled down to lukewarm. Then add the eggs but work in one egg before you add the next one. Before you add egg number 5 check if dough kind of drops off a spoon if you hold it in the air (does this make sense?). Don't stir any more then. Fill into a bag and squeeze nice ring-shape twirls on a buttered baking sheet. Bake immediately. Don't open the oven before they are done. Cut them in half right away after baking and fill them with whipped cream and any sort of fruit you like. For the savoury version fill it with cream cheese and chives. Just as an example. Get creative and see what you come up with. Bon appetit.

Yes Yes I know it's not Sunday but if you want to bake this delicious morning, you must read the recipe today and maybe even get ingredients? Anyway, here's the recipe. Have fun Bake.
