Delicious pie: step by step photo-recipe of choux eclairs
The name “eclair” in translation from French means “lightning”. That’s because getting into the oven a pastry that instantly increases in size!
Ingredients for the dough:
- a glass of white flour;
- butter 150 g;
- 2 tbsp. spoons of sugar;
- half a teaspoon of salt;
- 4 eggs.
- 1 egg;
- a glass of sugar;
- 3-4 spoons of flour;
- tablespoon of starch;
- 2 cups of milk.
one. Sift a glass of flour into a medium bowl.
2 Cut the butter into cubes and place them in a thick-bottomed saucepan, add milk, sugar and salt, extract or vanilla powder. In parallel with this exercise, you can turn on the oven so that it can warm up well.
3 We put all this beauty on the fire and bring to a boil, stirring.
four. As soon as the milk boils, reduce the heat and add all the sifted flour, continuously stirring the resulting mass with a wooden spatula. We continue until the dough begins to lag behind the edges of the saucepan, now we remove from the heat and proceed to the 5th step!
five. When the dough has cooled slightly, add the eggs, leaving one yolk to lubricate the eclairs. Beat thoroughly until a homogeneous mass is obtained. Better to do this with a mixer.
6 The finished dough is placed in a pastry bag and form tubules, the classic pastry length is 10-12 cm.
7 Beat the remaining yolk with a pair of spoons of milk and lubricate the surface with eclerics. This will give them a golden color!

Reduce the heat and, while stirring, add here the finished egg-sugar mass. Leave on fire a couple more minutes, and remove. The cream is ready!
