Cream puffs

What’s a difference between choux pastry, cream puffs and profiteroles? Does it matter? Let’s just make them and enjoy while they last!

As I recently have a little time, I was looking on the internet last week. Looking to find new, fascinating ideas, inspirational meals that I’ve never tasted before, to treat my loved ones with. Looking for quite some time but could not come across any interesting things. Right before I thought to give up on it, I came upon this scrumptious and easy treat simply by chance on Suncakemom. The dessert looked so delightful on its snapshot, that required quick action.

It had been simple enough to imagine just how it’s created, how it tastes and how much my hubby will enjoy it. Actually, it is extremely simple to please him when it comes to treats. Anyway, I got into the webpage and used the comprehensive instuctions that had been accompanied by nice shots of the process. It really makes life faster and easier. I could imagine that it is a slight hassle to shoot photos in the middle of cooking in the kitchen because you typically have gross hands and so i genuinely appreciate the hard work she placed in to build this post and recipe conveniently followed.

With that in mind I am encouraged presenting my personal dishes in a similar way. Many thanks for the concept.

I had been tweaking the original mixture to make it for the taste of my family. I’ve got to say it was an awesome success. They loved the flavor, the structure and enjoyed having a delicacy like this in the midst of a busy workweek. They quite simply demanded even more, a lot more. So next time I am not going to commit the same miscalculation. I’m going to multiply the volume to get them delighted.

This Choux pastry is from SunCakeMom.

Place water and butter in a medium saucepan. Stir it with a wooden spoon and bring to boil.

Reduce heat and add the flour slowly stirring continuously until it forms a ball that pulls away from the sides of the saucepan.

Remove from heat and leave it cool down before start adding the eggs, one by one beating them. Keep beating until the egg is fully incorporated.

Use 2 spoons to sort the dough into walnut sized piles onto a baking sheet on the tray. Place them far from each other as they are going to expand.

Preheat the oven into 390ºF / 200ºC degree and put the pastries in to bake them for 25 – 35 minutes (depends on the oven) until puffed up, dry, and golden brown. (Try not to open the oven door before they develop a crust as the pastry can fall due to sudden temperature fall.)


Meanwhile the pastry is baking use the time to make the cream. Use vanilla pudding powder and follow instructions on its box. There are all sort of brands so everything depends on what we prefer. For a sugar free recipe use sugar free vanilla powder. Some we only have to beat with a certain amount of milk, others we need to cook to get the pudding. It needs to be stiff.

Turn heating off and put the pudding aside to cool down. If cooking sounds difficult, use the instant version, whisk the vanilla cream and set it aside in the fridge.

Whisk the whipping cream separately, cover and put it in the fridge, too.
