ECLAIRS aka CREAM PUFFS aka CHOUX PASTE

Eclairs
Eclairs
Yesss I got the green light from my Cyber friend Shida Aziz to share this Eclairs recipe with you. Eclairs are also known as Cream Puffs or Choux Paste. Before trying the recipe that Shida gave me, my eclairs didn't puff up nicely and feel like giving up. It's just so sad when you've put a lot of effort into something, and it came out as a failure. Not to mention, all the ingredients that'll be wasted. But when Shida said that this recipe is guranteed, makes me feel like trying and alhamdulillah, it came out nice. Thank you Shida for sharing the recipe with me and thank you to Chef Anuar for creating this lovely and easy recipe.



CREAM PUFF/ECLAIR/CHOUX PASTE

Ingredients :

250g water
100g margarine
200g flour ~ sifted
6 eggs
1/2 teaspoon vanilla essence

Method :

1. Put water, margarine and vanilla essence in a pot on medium heat and leave to boil. Preferably, use
a non stick bowl with wooden spoon.
2. When boiling, add flour bit by bit and stir well till a soft dough is formed. Remove from fire.
3. Place the dough in the mixer bowl and using the flat beater, beat the dough till cool.
4. Add in eggs one at a time and continue beating till a sticky paste is formed.
5. Put the paste into a piping bag and pipe on the greased baking tray.
6. Bake for 15 minutes in a preheated oven at 170 C.
7. Leave to cool. Then cut in the middle by the side and pipe the filling. Drizzle with melted cooking
chocolate.

Custard filling

Ingredients :

100g instant custard
200g water (boiled and cool)
a bit of whipping cream

Method :

1. Mix instant custard with water.
2. Add in whipping cream and mix well.

Note :
1. For method number 3, make sure the dough is really cool before adding eggs.
2. To know whether the cream puffs are ready or not : if there's no more bubbles on the puff while in the oven, then it's ready.
3. I didn't use the custard filling. I just used whipping cream for my Eclairs this time.

Lin>> Mama hanya whip fresh cream menggunakan balloon whisk sampai gebu. Sebelum itu, kalau cream yang digunakan belum bercampur gula, masukkan gula icing yang telah diayak mengikut kemanisan yang disukai dan tuangkan sedikit esen vanilla/strawberry atau apa apa saja esen yang Lin gemari. Kemudian, on the mixer dan pukul sampai fluffy.
