Choux pastry is a marvel – I love how it comes together in a pan in a huge stodgy ball but by the time it comes out of the oven its light and airy. The profiteroles pictured are the second lot I made yesterday (and pictured in the dark so the pics a bit dodgy) – The first lot got demolished with no cream, sauce or chocolate before I could even get back in the kitchen. Vultures I tell you!
I’ve had my ups and downs with making choux pastry over the years but have finally sorted my ideal recipe out. I never use as many eggs as traditional recipes say – My mixture just went too sloppy and resulted in flat profiteroles/eclairs. Not any more!
Another fine collection of Bake of the Week entries, last week. I’m rounding up a few hours later than usual due to the mother of all migraines last night/this morning.
I must give a special mention to this amazing Mr Tumble birthday cake by Mummy Whiskers
One of my most favourite combinations ever is Chocolate Orange and Jenny from Mummy Mishaps certainly didn’t disappoint with this cake
I will admit to having a little bread jealousy (I’m sure thats a thing?) of this wonderfully soft bread by ET Speaks From Home
And yet more bread from ET Speaks from Home – The flavours must have been jumping out with this Rosemary Focaccia with Piquant Peppers
And I’m saving a special one for last with Hijacked By Twins Cinnamon Breakfast Loaf – We’re all coming round for breakfast, Kirsty!
