Cream Puffs

Beard Papa is a Japanese chain store which sells "fresh'n natural cream puffs" and it is really popular at the moment. Many of my friends and family have been there and they really enjoy eating the cream puffs. (http://www.beardpapa.com.hk/eng_index.html)

I recreated these all famous cream puffs at home on Saturday. I made these for school last year, so its nothing new, and they weren't hard to make either :)

Ingredients (makes 6-8)
3/4 cup water
50 g unsalted butter
3/4 cup flour, sifted
3 eggs beaten lightly

1. Gently heat butter and water until it simmers
2. Take off heat and add flour all in one go, beat quickly with a wooden spoon 
3. Return to heat, beat until the mixture leaves the side of the pan. Remove from heat.
4. Beat eggs in one at a time, incorperating well after each addition. Beat until the mixture is stiff, glossy, and a wooden spoon stands in the mixture
5. Spoon tablespoonfuls of batter into a baking tray and bake at 210C for 20-25 minutes. 




200g dark chocolate
30g butter

Melt dark chocoalte and butter using a bain-marie method. Spread the chocolate on top of the puffs

Whipped Cream, sweetened
Fresh fruits, diced
