  1. 1

    Place the water, butter, sugar and salt in a pan and bring to the boil, making sure the butter is completely melted.

    For this step you'll need:

    • 150ml Water
    • 60ml Butter (unsalted)
    • 2tsp White caster sugar
    • pinch Salt
  2. 2

    Add the flour and stir in with a wooden spoon – it is important to cook the flour fully so don’t hurry this process. The dough should come away easily from the side of the pan.

    For this step you'll need:

    • 100g Strong white bread flour
  3. 3

    Place the dough in a food mixer and, while beating, add the eggs one at a time, scraping down the bowl after each addition. Add egg until the mixture is suitable for deep frying – if it’s too wet you won’t be able to use it. Cover the bowl with clingfilm and leave to rest in the fridge for 1–2 hours.

    For this step you'll need:

    • 3 Egg(s) (free range) whisked
  4. 4

    Pour the oil into a deep, wide heavy-based pan and heat it until it reaches 170°C/338°F. Have ready a baking tray or plate covered with kitchen paper.

    For this step you'll need:

    • 500ml Vegetable oil for deep frying
  5. 5

    Deep-fry dessert spoonfuls of the dough until golden brown, then remove with a slotted spoon and drain on the kitchen paper. Cook the rest of the dough in batches.

  6. 6

    Serve the Sonhos warm, lightly dusted with some icing sugar.

    For this step you'll need:

    • Icing sugar to dust
