This cake is a subtly delightful combination of sweet and savoury flavours that is perfect as a pre-dinner treat with cocktails or a crisp white wine. Serves 8 to 10 as a starter with a rocket salad or more as a pre-dinner appetizer. It’s great party food too, and it won’t last long on a buffet table!
A cheesy variation of choux pastry, Gougères can be made as individual cheesy puffs or as per the traditional way in Burgundy, in a delightful crown-shaped sharing piece. Choux pastry is so easy in the Thermomix, you’ll wonder why you don’t make it more often!
