I've made cream puffs before and they turned out very well, but for some reason they turned out awful today. In fact, they didn't puff at all. My dough started out normally: 1 cup water, half stick butter, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and 2 tablespoons sugar. Dough pulled away from pan, formed a ball, and cooled. This I where things go wrong: when I add my 4 eggs to the batter in my stand mixer, after even just 2 eggs the dough is too runny. I don't understand what I did wrong and all my quantities were correct but for some reason it just seemed too, too thin. This has never happened before, what am I doing wrong?
