Step 1 of 5
Preheat the oven 200°C (180°C for fan ovens) or Gas Mark 6.
Step 2 of 5
Melt the water, butter and sugar together in a pan. Add the flour and beat with a wooden spoon until smooth and thick. Add the eggs, one at a time, beating well before adding the next, until the mixture becomes smooth and glossy.
Step 3 of 5
Line 2 baking sheets with parchment and sprinkle both with a little water. Spoon the mixture into a piping bag with a smooth nozzle and pipe equal balls (about the size of a golf ball). Bake for 20 minutes or until golden-brown.
Step 4 of 5
Remove from the oven and make an incision into the side of each bun to allow the steam to escape. Return to the oven for 1-2 minutes to let the profiteroles dry out. Place onto a wire rack to cool.
Step 5 of 5
When the profiteroles are completely cold, cut each one in half. Spoon a little caramel into the bottom half of each profiterole. Whip the cream and pipe a little into each top. Place a banana slice onto the caramel bases and sandwich with the cream top. Serve with the chocolate sauce. Divine!
