Creamy Choux

Choux pastry was originally from France. This wonderful creamy puff has a light and crispy shell on the outside and soft, delicious and creamy custard inside. It’s so easy to make at home with readily available ingredients. The best part is, you can use the same dough to make Éclairs or any other puff.

  3. Next, preheat the oven on 180-degree C. Take a baking tray and put butter paper on it. Make small balls and put egg wash on all. Place the baking tray in a 180 degrees C preheated oven for 20 minutes.
  4. For the creamy custard, in a pan put 1 cup milk, corn starch, sugar and bring it to a boil. Mix egg yolks and half cup milk in another bowl.
  5. On low gas flame, put the egg mixture into the boiled milk and vanilla essence. Mix till it becomes a thick custard.
  6. Once done, take out the puffs from the oven and put the creamy custard into it with using the piping bag or syringe.
