I remember I used to eat quite a lot cream puffs when I was kid. They are so light and delicious, filled with chocolate cream, pastry cream or whipped cream….just love it! It called choux à la crème usually filled with Chantilly cream or pastry cream. So adorable, fluffy and delicate little puff. You cannot stop eating it. (This is very dangerous!)

I admit, I failed at my first attempt, I blamed the oven!!!

How to make the puff very light and  airy, not doughy and would not collaspe after come out of oven. The cooking time of the dough is crucial, if you undercook it, it will not rise ; if overcook it, it will become doughy and soggy, arrrghhh we do not want this either.

Don’t be scare, as long as pay attention to the details, you will have nice, hallow, light puffs. Let’s get baking!

小時候已很喜歡可愛的忌廉(鮮奶油)泡芙,內裡空空,但加上忌廉或卡士達醬,超美味!

這個可以說是法式甜點中較易掌握,失敗率較低的(雖然我第一次做是失敗的,是焗爐的錯!!)經過多番試驗後,只要掌握煮麵糰的時間,不是煮過久,否則裡面會變成粉糰,不是空洞的;如煮得不久,麵糰便不會上升,所以時間是非常重要!但看著泡芙在焗爐內慢慢上升,一個個空洞的泡芙新鮮出爐,滿足感只有我們才感受到!
