yy just fill the bottom with cream.

Did they stick to the pan? Is that how they lost their bottoms?

Or is it just the shape?

on the rack they look like yorkshire puddings

well I shall not need to skewer them, and I can disguise their misshapeness with lashings of choc

yes deffo, can be stored in airtight tin till tomorrow. They will deflate and look sad and flat, but oonce filled and covered in chocolate they will be fine again.

I have to go to work now, I had a long list of (boring) things to do this morning and have done none of it grin

whacked up temp

they are risen and starting to colour up

<dances around kitchen>

BoysAreLikeDogs Fri 09-Oct-09 11:21:19

omdb can I keep in airtight tin uninjected til tomorrow?

I plan to present them in my pampered chef fuck off trifle bowl at family gathering


I made a ten egg tirmaisu the other week

overmydeadbody Fri 09-Oct-09 11:19:57

DO 8 minutes then if they look like they are colouring wack the oven up a bit and do another 8-10, if they are golden before the time is up take them out. It is not an exact science.

<scrolls down for timings>

BoysAreLikeDogs Fri 09-Oct-09 11:17:03

BoysAreLikeDogs Fri 09-Oct-09 11:14:34

MmeGoblindt Fri 09-Oct-09 11:13:47

oh, I have always wanted to make choux pastry. Will try the recipe soon.

LOL at the lurking pastry. I thought that was deliberate and was impressed with the turn of phrase.

BoysAreLikeDogs Fri 09-Oct-09 11:13:33

I once filled them with a filling of ham mixed with cream cheese, mustard, honey and watercress. They where yummy.

overmydeadbody Fri 09-Oct-09 11:12:17

or you can make a <snigger> Paris-Brest

OMG boys, you did it!!!!!!

Yes, pastry should not be in a ball once eggs are added

overmydeadbody Fri 09-Oct-09 11:08:43

<snort> Boys

You get a suitable man ti inject the cream grin

Seriously though, you use a piping bag with a metal injecting nozle.

overmydeadbody Fri 09-Oct-09 11:07:30

and, of course, you are not limited to sweet fillings and toppings, they also work well for cases for fillings like cream cheese and smoked salmon, simple things like egg mayonaise or tuna mayonaise, cold chicken maya fillings etc etc and you can use chicken stock instead of water in the recipe for this, or add gratred parmesan to the flour etc
