    JustJanS's Note:

    My mother was renowned for her powder puffs. They cook up and cool to very dry, and will keep for a week or 10 days (I challenge you to keep them that long ;-) ) in an air-tight tin, then you bring them out, fill them, and they are as light and tender as you can imagine! Not really sure how many this recipe will make.

      great little "puff", not what I was looking for but very nice. They came out the oven like wettex, but I put them back for 30 mins with the oven off and fan going, and they crisped up. spread them with nutella and whipped cream and the kids went mad for them unfortunately the choco hit lasted longer then their mother liked, ...........................:(
