I loveeee love loveeeeeeee this Éclair to bits!! super awesome texture.. the vanilla custard is to die for... hb loves it alot.. i gave half to mom and theres only two more pcs left in the fridge which i think will be gone tmrw morning hahaha.. wonderful recipe is fm Yuli .. ty for sharing it .. :o)

1 / 3 cup water
1 / 3 cup milk
1 / 2 cup all purpose flour
65gr Salted butter
2 eggs
1 egg yolk
pinch of salt
pinch of sugar

Vanilla custard
3 egg yolks
1 / 4 cup sugar
1 stick vanilla bean
1 cup UHT milk
15gr corn flour
1 tbsp Salted butter

50ml whipped cream - i used double cream
50g dark cooking chocolate - I used Marmer couverture

1. Heat water, milk, butter & sugar until boil, remove from fire, add sifted flour, stir well, return to the fire, stirring until dough does not stick to the pan (leaves a thin layer of skin on ur pan), remove from fire.
2. Add the eggs one at a time while stirring till well blended. Scoop batter into pipping bag, snip tip and pipe elongated with a size according to taste.
3. Bake at temperature of 220C for 15-20 minutes until the surface is yellowish. Do not open till its fully baked.
4. Remove and let it cool down bef piping vanilla custard. (I baked it using 200C for 15 mins.. take it out.. cut a small hole on my puff and place it back into my oven again for abt 10mins - to dry em)

Vanilla custard
1. Mix the egg yolks, sugar, corn flour, stir until well blended and pale yellow in color.
2. Heat the milk and vanilla bean until almost boiling, remove vanilla bean, pour half of the boiled milk into the beaten egg + sugar + corn flour, stir, then pour back into remaining milk , reheat, stirring constantly until custard thickens, remove from fire, add butter, stir until well blended, let it cool bef putting into piping bag.

Mix dcc & whipped cream, heat one minute in the microwave, stir till chocolate melts, if not melted heat a further 30 seconds. (I heated my double cream and poured into dcc.. let it sit for a min and stir)

Make a hole on the tip of Éclair- pipe in custard filling.. Dip into chocolate glaze.. Ready to be enjoyed with a cuppa

Super easy to prepare and yummy too!

All packed and ready to be delivered to my visiting KL customer.. ty Aiza .. see u at the Hyatt tmrw afternoon yah and also ty Ulfa for ordering cheesecake brownies.. hope u and ur colleagues like it!

Kak Rima.... tau2 je kita nak makan eclair ni. Actually this week I dah dua kali beli giant eclairs kat nearest bakery sini. Nak wat last week kene tunggu weekend sbb it was our egg-less week....ngeee....

yey.....besok boleh beli teloq...anyway yg kat doha ni, most bakers squeeze in fresh cream filling....bole la, dr tak der kan...BUT yours...erghh...I got madly crush...mmg suke custard jatuh cinta lak....

Kudos to you Rima, you manage multiple task so well. For me, after baking one item I will be exhausted and call it a day. Yes, lazy me ;) So when I have party, I will kalan kabo baking few items at one go. Tonight I'm gonna have one and I'm still lost where to start lol.
Those exclairs look mouth watering. Enjoy your day ahead Rima.

Rima said...

Tak pernah lagi gi Doha .. wonder how its like there...

Actually eclair ke cream puff ke semua very the addictive.. lagi lagi kalau benda nye kecik kecik.. satu kali masuk mulut habis semua hahah
