I did lots of Eclairs in my life and I wanted to share with you the lovely options you have to play with choux pastry dough. I should have post this earlier but today some friends asked me to do some eclairs – hilarious hein? it is always when you are not allowed to eat something that people ask you to make some. So after making the lovely hazelnut eclair below I thought it was time to share my best creations. You will find the choux pastry dough recipe here. The vanilla custard recipe here and the hazelnut praline paste here.
1. The Hazelnut Eclair, It was my favourite Eclair when I was eating sugar.
View from the top. Brrrr Scary !!!
3. The Strawberry Snake Eclairs. Shape the dough in S shape. Cut the S lengthwise and stuff with whipped cream. Decorate the top with fresh strawberries slice. Make the head with a strawberries and the tongue with strawberries leaves.
It is a really fresh recipe perfect to impress your guest this summer.
4. The Patriotic Vanilla Eclair or Independance Day dessert. Full Recipe and tutorial here.
5. The Doughnuts Eclair, Same recipe as above but the dough is shaped like a doughnuts. It is up to you to add a filling. I did not.
I covered them with chocolate icing and sprinkled different topping my friends like.
