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 most recently have some time, I had been surfing on the internet the other day. In need of new, interesting thoughts, inspirational meals that I have never tested before, to impress my loved ones with. Looking for a while yet could not discover lots of interesting stuff. Just before I thought to give up on it, I came upon this scrumptious and easy dessert simply by chance over Suncakemom. The dessert looked so scrumptious on its image, it called for prompt actions.

It absolutely was not so difficult to imagine how it’s made, its taste and how much my husband is going to enjoy it. Mind you, it is quite simple to please him in terms of cakes. Anyway, I got into the page and used the comprehensive instuctions which were combined with great photos of the operation. It just makes life faster and easier. I could imagine that it is a bit of a effort to take photographs down the middle of cooking in the kitchen as you may normally have sticky hands therefore i pretty appreciate the time and effort she placed in to make this post and recipe conveniently implemented.

That being said I’m encouraged to present my own, personal recipe in a similar fashion. Many thanks the idea.

I had been fine tuning the original recipe to make it for the taste of my loved ones. I have to mention it turned out an incredible outcome. They enjoyed the flavor, the thickness and enjoyed having a delicacy such as this during a hectic workweek. They ultimately demanded even more, a lot more. Thus the next occasion I’m not going to commit the same miscalculation. I am gonna double the amount .

This was made possible through SunCakeMom who provided the original Profiteroles.

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.
