Profiterole Passion

Chocolate, Food, Fruit, Uncategorized

I have been making a lot of profiteroles recently. After the 1st time making Chox pastry I just could not believe how easy it is to do and since then I have been a profiterole baking machine.

I have often heard people say they get a lot of enjoyment out of making bread, that they like the way the gluten comes together and the dough forms. For me, that feeling comes when the wet, gloopy Chox dough transcends into a glossy thick mixture. It’s my therapy.

My favorite filling at the moment is a passion fruit cream, the tang of the passion fruit is amazing with the bittersweetness of the dark chocolate top.

  
To make the cream simply sieve your passion fruit so your left with a juice without the pips, whisk up a pot of double cream and add the juice plus sugar to taste. You can play around withthe measurements  here, I like a really strong passion fruit hit so I go heavy in the passion fruit!

If you need an exact recipe, let me know.

Baking: my long lost friend

Normally when I come home I am happy to make dinner but that’s about as much Ican be bothered to do. However tonight I baked!!! 😀

Not the most exciting bake I grant you but a bake non the less! 

I quite enjoyed it too, listened to a bit of serial, relaxed..it was good.

I made raspberry muffins from the weight watchers book. I just ate one and they are not too bad, not overly sweet but they would actually be a really nice breakfast muffin. And so a breakfast muffin they shall be!
