Step by Step Method

Step 1

*To make the puffs* preheat oven to 400 degrees F (205 C).

Step 2

Spray a baking sheet with cooking spray or grease the baking sheet.

Step 3

In a saucepan over medium heat bring water to a boil and then add the butter and salt; stir, reduce heat and add the flour, beating mixture until mixture pulls away from the side of the pan as you want a smooth ball of dough. Remove from heat and add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Using a spoon shape puffs into 1 1/2 inch balls and place them on the prepared baking sheet. Bake in preheated oven 8-10 minutes and then reduce heat to 350 degrees F and bake an additional 10-15 minutes or until golden brown. Cool on wire racks.

Step 4

To make the cream filling: In the bowl of an electric mixer mix together the cream and banana extract and then whip to soft peaks . Beat in sugar to taste.

Step 5

To make the sauce: in a saucepan over low heat melt the sugar, stirring constantly. Gradually add the hot coffee, string until sugar dissolves. In a separate bowl mix together the cold coffee with the cornstarch and then add this mixture to the hot coffee mixture; continue cooking until mixture comes to a boil and thickens. Remove from heat and add the butter and rum, stirring until the butter melts.

Step 6

*To make the completed puffs* fill the cooked puffs with cream filling and place on serving dishes. Top with the warm sauce.
