Chocolate cream eclairs

IMG_6331.JPG

INGREDIENTS
125ml water
60gr butter
70gr flour
1ml salt (if unsalted butter was used)
2 extra large eggs 

METHOD
Place water and the butter in a medium sized saucepan. Allow butter to melt. Don’t let the water boil.
Remove from heat. 

Add the flour and salt and return to hear and stir quickly until dough comes together in the centre and comes off the sides. 

Remove from heat for about 5 min. 
Add the eggs in one at a time and stir well after each addition until dough is stiff again. 

Place tablespoon dollops on a greased tray or use a piping bag for longer shapes. 
Bake in a preheated oven at 200degC for 10 minutes and then reduce to 180degC and bake for another 15 min. 

Switch off and leave to cool in the oven or you can take it out after 20 min or so. 

Only cut in half once they’re totally cooled. Melt chocolate (100gr) and dip the tops into the chocolate. 

Whip about 250ml cream and icing sugar together to taste. Fill the pastry. Add the chocolate covered tops and you’re done!

#BOOKS YOU SHOULD HAVE IN YOUR READING COLLECTION 📖

Are you a reader?

I enjoy reading when I have time in between all my other work I have to do around the house. For me, reading at night in bed makes me fall asleep immediately. So reading in the day is much better. That way I can keep awake and actually follow the story. 😋

Here is a list I shared with a friend recently. Have you read any of them?

1) Wild Swans – Jung C’hang (based on true events)
2) Corner Shop – Roopa Farooki 
3) any book by Francine Rivers (spiritual)
4) The Shack – William P Young 
5) The Cleaner Of Chatres – Sally Vickers 
6) The Gabriel Method – Jon Gabriel (nutritional and inspirational)
7) Eat Pray Love – Elizabeth Gilbert 
8) A Thousand Days in Venice – Marlena de Blasi
9) A Year in Provence – Peter Mayle (who wrote the story A Good Year, which they made a movie with Russell Crowe) 
10) Water For Elephants – Sara Gruen (better than the movie)
11) The Purpose Driven Life – Rick Warren (spiritual and inspirational)
12) The Egg and Sperm Race – Matthew Cobb. (Which I’m currently reading. A must read! Absolutely fascinating)

Of course there are more. But these are my favorites thus far.. I’d like to start the Game Of Thrones books though.
