    Pate au Choux with Paris Brest

    Mistake in initial ingredients , shows 1 cup of flour instead of 2cups of flour.

    This reads 1 cup of flour, which is how we made them , the batter was VERY runny so then I checked the full recipe and it is actually 2 cups of flour. Whoops. Not knowing what else do do, apart from throwing everything out, I beat in another 1 cup + 1/2 of flour to try and get the right consistency. They came out quite flat but still yummy. Please fix the mistake so others don't do the same thing I did. Happy Baking !!
