Homemade Chocolate Eclairs

 


The choux pastry totally failed. I tested it a few times thinking I had done something wrong but it's still very runny dough. I asked my mom who is a professional pastry chef and she told me the recipe wasn't good. On the other hand, the cream is very good and has a perfect texture.

* Ingredients: 

+Choux pastries:

° 150 grams flour

° 25 cl of water

To prepare the choux pastry:

The second step

 Preheat oven 210 °C

On a pre-oiled baking sheet, use a pastry bag to spread about ten strands of dough about 15 cm long.

Step 8

Brush the egg yolk until the pastry is golden when cooked.

Step 9

Bake for 25 minutes in a hot oven and leave to rest for 10 minutes, without oven, to prevent the puffs or eclairs from shrinking.

In a bowl, beat eggs, yolks and sugar until mixture becomes foamy.

Make it thicker without stopping to stir.

Add 20 g of butter from the fire. Let it cool down.

Step 16

Decorate the eclair cut in half lengthwise with this cream and melt the remaining chocolate and butter in a bain-marie.

step 17

Cover the top of the eclair. Let the ice harden before eating.

Enjoy !
