We’re off on a blog hop! You’ll be forgiven for not knowing quite what one of those is. I had to admit I didn’t have a clue when it was first mentioned so let me explain…
To celebrate the very imminent launch of my new book, Creative Eclairs we have rounded up a great bunch of people with really lovely blogs to take a look at the book.
Can I interest you in an Éclair or two?
I am sure a plateful would be gone in a flash round here!
The official launch date of my new book, Creative Éclairs - is the 25th April 2014 but I’ve heard that they’ll be arriving in the UK early – hurrah!
Sounds fancy, it’s not (you know me better!) This makes a great family tea, a change from pie and casserole but still with that give you a great big hug hearty winter meal! This is Mum’s recipe, but I’ve fidgeted about with it of course – here’s hoping she doesn’t mind too much.
Now I’ve done the Choux pastry how to (here) lets see what we can do with them.
Vanilla Chocolate and Coffee Eclairs
Before I give you the low down on the eclairs I thought I’d share a couple of my other tea party essentials.
Choux pastry is a really versatile pastry to have up your sleeve, it gives some people grief so I thought I’d do a quick how to before using it in a recipe.
Traditionally used for profiteroles, choux pastry can also be made into a great variety of lovely things, eclairs and gougere included!
