thyme and goat cheese profiteroles recipe

Preparation Time: 15 minutes          /          Cooking Time: 25-30 minutes         /          Makes 18-20 profiteroles


  • 80ml water
  • pinch of salt
  • 5g caster sugar
  • 40g butter cubed, at room temperature
  • 60g plain flour, sifted
  • 2 x 58g eggs
  • 150g goat cheese
  • 100ml cream
  • 5ml olive oil
  • 8 sprigs fresh thyme
  • 30g orange blossom honey





  1. Preheat your oven to 180oC fan forced.
  2. Place the water and butter in a saucepan over a medium heat.
  3. Once the butter has melted add the flour, salt, sugar and mix together.
  4. Continue incorporating the dry mix over the heat for 1-2 minutes.
  5. Remove the saucepan from the heat and allow the contents to cool for 5 minutes.
  6. Add 1 egg and stir with a wooden spoon until the egg is completely incorporated. This may take a few minutes. Once done, repeat with the second egg.
  7. Pipe the mixture onto a lined baking tray, making each profiterole approximately 4cm in diameter. Ensure you leave enough space between each profiterole to account for them expanding during the baking process.
  8. Bake for 15-20 minutes. Remove from the oven and allow to cool.
  9. In a bowl mix together 7 sprigs of thyme (removed from the stalk), goat cheese and cream.
  10. Once cool, make a small cut in the base of each profiterole and fill them with the goat cheese mixture via a piping bag.
  11. Drizzle the profiteroles with orange blossom honey and top with a few thyme leaves.



You can use honey other than organe blossom, just make sure it’s a light, floral honey as you don’t want a honey that overpowers the other flavours.
