Yummy treats


Yesterday I made eclairs and profiteroles for the first time.
The recipe I used is here and despite all the reviews on the site saying the choux pastry was a bit tricky to make I thought it was rather easy. The custard cream filling was so yummy I had to pipe the remains straight into my mouth. Yes, gross of me.
Sorry for the dodgy image, it was low light. They're perched on a Spode plate on my new Mozi tea towel which I think might be too nice to use as a tea towel. I thought it might be better as a placemat of some description. I like the overload of pattern :)

  2. Mmmmm they look fantastic. I haven't made choux pastry since high school- you have inspired me though. Sometimes it's hard to resist custard cream!

  3. Profiteroles are my signature dish Sarah (I use Women's Weekly recipe). People are so impressed when I make them but they don't realise they are surprisingly easy to make.

    Yours look fabulous!! Yum!

  9. Delish!! I haven't tried choux pastry before - all the cooking shows make out it's tricky to get right.

  10. I have shied away from making these in the past because I thought that they were beyond my capabilities....you've given me a bit of inspiration to try them now. They were served at my wedding reception, so maybe I'll surprise husband for our wedding anniversary?

  11. Bad lighting or not - these look delicious! Well done!

    Thanks for your comment on my Tasmania post. I really did love your beautiful part of Australia - perhaps my favourite yet. That and Port Stephens.

    Have a lovely rest of the week.
