Nah the flour makes little difference tbh.

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.

Are you going to post pictures of your golden balls?

Slubberdegullion Fri 09-Oct-09 11:58:39

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?

BoysAreLikeDogs Fri 09-Oct-09 11:53:06

did you clock the ruler in the pic?


BoysAreLikeDogs Fri 09-Oct-09 11:52:19

<basks in approbation>

Slubberdegullion Fri 09-Oct-09 11:49:59

and holy mother of puddings that is the titanic of tiramisus you have there baldy.

Slubberdegullion Fri 09-Oct-09 11:48:56

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.

overmydeadbody Fri 09-Oct-09 11:39:18

yay at soft and golden

I think they will be fine

overmydeadbody Fri 09-Oct-09 11:37:32

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?

BoysAreLikeDogs Fri 09-Oct-09 11:37:19

some were sticking

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


overmydeadbody Fri 09-Oct-09 11:36:47

Did they stick?
