Hubby is not a sweet-toothed person as he does not favour most pastries except for cream puff. For him to appreciate my baking, I reckoned it was time for me to learn his favourite pastry – Cream Puff.
Cream puff was originated from French pastry name Choux Pastry or Pâte à choux with butter, water, flour, and eggs as main ingredients. I had a cook book from Agnes Chang illustrating Choux Pastry recipe and I was preparing to give it a go. Later, I had the idea to check out some video demonstrations before attempting it. After watching a few Choux pastry videos on youtube , I dived straight into it.
Result? I was glad the pastry turned out nicely, however I was a bit disappointed with the custard fillings as the custard was not thick enough. I guess I should have stirred and cooked the custard a bit longer to thicken its consistency. Either sweet fillings or savoury fillings can be used.Since I found visual demostration was much more informative and easy to follow, here I’m showing a clip featuring my Choux pastry making experience.
