Grand Budapest – Surprise inside filled Crème Puffs
1 ½ teaspoon of sugar
150 ml of water
60g butter in pieces
3-4 large eggs
Combine the sugar and flour in a bowl and set aside. Put 150ml of water and the butter in a sauce pan and bring slowly to boil. The butter should be melted.
Working quickly, remove the saucepan from the heat, add the flour mixture and stir vigorously with a wooden spoon to combine. Return to a low heat and continually stir for about a minute until the mixture forms a smooth thick mass that comes away from the sides of the pan. Avoid over beating because the pastry will not rise properly.
Transfer the dough into another bowl and allow it to cool slightly. Then using a wooden spoon stir in one egg at a time. It starts out very difficult when mixing in the egg and will look like a slimy mess but eventually it will incorporate into the dough. Continue with the next two eggs. When the mixture is finished it should be smooth, glossy and falls heavily from the spoon. If this is not the case, ie. too thick, use the final egg.
The pastry can be baked immediately or covered tightly and refrigerated for 24 hours. Bring to room temperature before using.
To make the crème puffs preheat your oven to 400 Fahrenheit and cover 2 baking sheets with parchment. Place your pastry in a large freezer bag and squeeze it down to one corner, twist the opening so the pastry doesn’t squeeze out the back end. Cut about 2 cm off the corner of the bag. Squeeze out your puffs in a circular motion to the size of a ping pong ball. Dip your finger in water and pat down the pointed tip of each puff so the tops are smooth and round. Bake these for 15 minutes and then turn the heat down to 350 and bake for another 15 to fully dry out.
For the fillings add whipped cream to each of the filling flavors and stir to combine.
