Choux Puffs

Makes approx 25 mini puffs

Castor sugar1/2 tsp
Bread flour100g
Cake flour40g
Eggs, lightly beaten4
Vanilla extract1/2 tsp

  1. In a pot, bring water, butter, salt, sugar and vanilla to boil. Make sure the butter gets melted.

  2. When mixture starts boiling, add in the flour ingredients and combine well. You should get a "dough-like" mixture. Remove the mixture off from heat when you see that a white film can be seen at the bottom.

  3. Mix well to make sure all the flour are well combined. When mixture turns luke warm, add in the beaten eggs in thirds. You should get a sticky and yellowish batter.

  4. Scoop the batter into a piping and pipe them into circular shape onto a tray layed with baking paper. Bring to bake at 200 degree Celsius for 25 mins.

  5. Squeeze Custard cream or vanilla cream into the ready puff and sprinkle with icing sugar.

These puffs were baked for my colleagues cum friends who came over to my house on Sunday. It was just a simple gathering for the few closer friends in the office and I am really gald that they did enjoy the moment spent together in my squeezy apartment :) Imagine the humid weather with no aircon. 辛苦大家了! (read: Thank you for accomodating)

Majority of the girls voted for cream puffs as our dessert, so I baked them with fresh vanilla cream .Ping Ping (my picnic basket sponsor) loves them especially since they are one of her favourites and she wanted to learn how to make them. For the sake of her, I baked another batch yesterday night, so that she and the rest can get to taste the puffs again and of course, she will be able get know of the recipe from my blog :)
