Super Easy Cream Puffs + Philly Cookbook Giveaway

22 April 2011, 21:20

Hai guys! Happy Easter! I was a little too excited about the uber long weekend and hit the happy juice pretty hard last night hence this super late post. Now the one dessert where I just cannot stop at 1? CREAM PUFFS! OHHHH YEAH! I heart cream puffs/profiteroles and definitely prefer them over custard filled ones. The below recipe is from the Land o Lakes website cos I had wanted to do cream puff bunnies (but er failed haha) but I followed Joy of Baking‘s cooking temperatures.

100g butter
1 cup plain flour
1 cup water
4 eggs
Philadelphia Cream For Desserts (you can always use full cream)

Preheat oven to 200C. Combine the 1 cup water and 100g butter and cook over medium heat until mixture comes to a full boil (4 to 7 minutes).

Reduce heat to low, stir in flour vigorously until mixture leaves sides of pan and forms a ball. I am the world’s messiest baker.

See? Ball-ish

Remove pot from heat. Beat in 1 egg at a time until mixture is smooth.

Plop balls onto baking paper lined trays. If you’ve got a piping bag you should pipe out the dough cos then the puffs will look nicer. Bake for 15mins at 200c and then turn down heat to 175C and bake for another 15mins until shells are golden brown.

Slather puffs with the Philly cream. Or you can fill piping bag with whipped cream and fill the puff

Basket o puffs! Lil dusting of icing sugar and voila!

I tried making them look like bunnies but I failed so um doo di doo

Aaaand I’ve got 5 PHILLY Cookbooks to giveaway! All you gotta do is leave a comment on this post telling me:

  4. Heehee that top photo is too cute. Your basket of puffs looks super puffy! Piping bag definitely makes them easier, these days ive been using ziploc bags with the corner cut out, so much easier to clean up afterwards!

  12. My friends and I always go down to the Sick Kids hospital in Toronto and give Easter eggs to the children who are patience there! We give them a mini basket with goodies and cards! It really puts a smile on their faces as well as ours, so it’s definitely my favorite Easter activity! :D

    Also , cream puffs are delicious! They taste even better then you put custard cream inside them :3

  17. Easter for me
    = eat junk and exercise
    With eating junk to exercise ratio being 99:1.
    Then maybe get a little obese afterwards.
    meh. Worth it.

  34. Never really thought about this but it has to be the Easter Show! I know I may be getting a little old to be excited about it but it’s so fun going with family and stuffing myself silly with food. My brother and I have this tradition where we go up to the chicken/turkey cages and make chicken/turkey noises to irritate them until they flap their wings and we run away :D Oh and petting the Alpacas are always fun ^^ they’re like big furry dog-giraffe-sheeps lol

  35. Oh, my favourite thing to do during the Easter break is colouring eggs and baking. Sooo relaxing! And the egg hunt is fun!
