Cream Puff Help, Please

plsdontburn Apr 6, 2013 08:43 PM

Hello All,

I'm new to this site, but I hope that someone can help me with a cream puff recipe.

When I try to bake cream puffs, the bottoms of the puffs become inverted while in the oven. This doesn't leave much space inside the puff. Does anyone know why this is happening and/or how to correct the issue?

(I've included a picture of the bottom of a puff.)

Thank you!

    Try using parchment. The puffs stick a little more to it.

      I've made cream puffs many times, on parchment as well as directly on a baking sheet, and have never had that problem. What recipe are you using? The others in the picture do not puff much either.

        Looks like your not baking on high heat, should be 425, what temp did you bake at.
