In a saucepan, combine milk, butter, salt and sugar and place it over low heat.

Mix the ingredients well. When the mixture comes to a boil, remove from the heat.

Add flour and stir quickly using a spatula. Blend until no lumps remain. (Photo #1)

Place the saucepan over low heat again. Stir until the dough doesn’t stick to the bottom of the saucepan. (Photo #2)

When the dough becomes stiff enough to form one lump, remove from the heat. While the dough is still hot, add beaten whole eggs, a little at a time, and stir well after each addition, to form a smooth, glossy dough. (Photo #3)

Put the dough in a pastry bag fitted with a 1cm pastry tube. Pipe the dough into 10cm rings. (Photo #4)

Bake in a preheated oven at 200 °C (392 °F) for about 15 to 20 minutes. Then lower the temperature to 170 °C (338 °F) and continue baking for about 10 more minutes.

After cooling, cut each puff in half horizontally.

Have half of the custard ready. Using a pasty bag or a spoon, fill the bottom halves of the puffs with the custard.

Add 5g of sugar to whipping cream and beat until stiff. Stir in the remaining half of the custard and blend. Using a pastry bag or a thick plastic bag, pipe the whipped cream mixture on top of the custard layer. (Photo #1)

Place the top halves of the puffs back on top.
