Well I make my choux pastry with strong plain flour.

That'll be why they have a hole in the bottom.

Actually don't know I haven't done it for years (since I was at school), but I used to part cook mine, slice them open and scoop out middle and then return to oven for second part.

<more preening>

Are you going to post pictures of your golden balls?

I did, I did. It was needed or I wouldn't have marvelled in such a eyes-wide-open-hands-of-suprise manner at the giganticness of it.

Was it all just fot you? Were you having a low day and needed a pudding uplift?

did you clock the ruler in the pic?


ooooh Slubbers

Oh this thread is simply marvellous.

I was with you all the way baldy, it got very tense in the middle didn't it? Hurrah for you and your golden balls.

OMDB you are a lady of many talents. Not only can you sleep on the floor and seemingly enjoy it you are also choux pasty queeen bee.

BALD lives too far away [humph]

yay at soft and golden

I think they will be fine

If they didn't stick and you didn't loose the bottom there should still be two layers so should be salvagable.

Did they puff up in the oven?

some were sticking

but I am jubilant as they are SOFT and GOLDEN not BLACK and ROCKLIKE


Did they stick?
