The ratio of eggs, water, butter, and flour is the most important part of baking the puffs. It is two parts eggs and water to one part butter and flour by weight. I weighed out all the ingredients and measured them to get the US standard measurement for those who don’t have a kitchen scale. Just follow my tips and you’ll be on your way to cream puff heaven!

Bake at 425 degrees F (220 degrees C) for 12 minutes.

Turn the heat down to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C) and bake an additional 25 minutes or until the choux pastry is golden brown. Do not open the oven door while they bake, you want the heat to dry out the center of the eclairs.
