It does involve a little more work in making the eclairs, but the end result is definitely worthid. You don’t have to use all the prepared eclairs for the dessert if you prefer your dessert to be moist. Eclairs stay well in an airtight container. You could also make half the recipe as well.
This dessert is a favourite amongst adults and kids and you could decorate it any way you like.
Hope you enjoy!!
- Eclairs :
- 1 cup water
- 1 teaspoon vanilla essence
- 4 eggs
- 125g butter
- 1 cup flour
- 1 litre custard
- 1 tub mascarpone cheese
- 1 fresh cream
- 1/4 cup Castor sugar
- Fresh berries, to decorate
Place water, butter and vanilla essence in a pot and bring to a boil. Add flour all at once and stir till it comes away from the side of the pot.
Let it cool completely, and eggs one at a time and beat. Put a tablespoon full of mixture on a baking sheet and bake at 200 degrees for 30 minutes and again on 180 degrees for 10minutes. Switch the oven off and leave eclairs inside with the oven door slightly open. Allow to cool.
Beat the fresh cream and sugar until soft peaks form. Fold in the softened mascarpone cheese and mix until smooth.
Pipe the filling into cooled profiteroles.
Pour a layer of custard at the base of the dessert dish. Place the eclairs in a single layer. Top with more custard until the eclairs are covered.
Drizzle melted chocolate and garnish with strawberry roses.
