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 currently have a little time, I had been browsing on the web the other day. Trying to get fresh, stirring tips, inspirational recipes that I have never tried before, to surprise my family with. Looking for quite some time yet couldn’t find any interesting stuff. Right before I wanted to give up on it, I discovered this fabulous and easy treat simply by chance. The dessert looked so mouth-watering on its pic, that called for immediate actions.

It absolutely was not so difficult to imagine the way it’s made, its taste and just how much my husband will probably love it. Actually, it is extremely simple to please the guy when it comes to cakes. Anyway, I went to the website: Suncakemom and simply followed the comprehensive instuctions that had been accompanied by superb photos of the method. It really makes life less difficult. I could imagine that it’s a slight effort to shoot pics in the middle of cooking in the kitchen as you may normally have sticky hands therefore i sincerely appreciate the effort and time she put in to make this blogpost and recipe easily implemented.

That being said I am inspired to present my own, personal recipes in a similar fashion. Many thanks the concept.

I was tweaking the main formula to make it for the taste of my loved ones. I can mention that it was a terrific outcome. They prized the flavour, the structure and enjoyed getting a sweet like this during a stressful week. They basically demanded more, many more. So the next time I am not going to make the same mistake. I’m likely to twin the quantity .

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.
