Preparation steps

1.
For the choux buns: heat the oven to 200°C (180° fan) 400°F gas 6. Line 2 large baking trays with non-stick baking paper.
2.
Heat the butter and water in a pan, bring to a boil, then remove from the heat. Tip in the flour, sugar and salt, beating constantly, until the mixture leaves the sides of the pan and forms a ball.
3.
Beat in the eggs, one at a time, until well blended. Using two teaspoons, form the mixture into walnut-sized balls and place on the baking trays. Bake for 30-40 minutes until golden and puffed. Place the balls on a wire rack, then slice them in half, to allow the steam to escape.
4.
For the filling: whisk the cream and icing sugar until thick. Place a spoonful of cherries on the base of each profiterole and top with a spoonful of cream. Add the tops and sift over a little icing sugar.
