I have just ‘lucked’ across your recipe for choux pastry – very timely as I am on a quest for the perfect profiterole! Before I get baking can you please clarify whether the eggs are weighed with or without shells (hopefully not a dumb question!), as I notice that the liquid content is a bit higher than previous recipes I have tried…..
Thanks for blog, I will work my way through once I have perfected the choux puffs!
Cheers for Australia
no it’s not a dumb question. The eggs are weighed without the eggshells.
Do note that the amount of eggs is a rough guide. Because it is dependent on a few factors including the environment and how long you have cooked your panade for etc..
You need to add them slowly and not all at once.
And once you reached a good consistency. You can stop adding the eggs. Or add more if you need to thin down the mixture for piping.
Hope this helps!
Thank you Jo for your speedy reply! When I sat down and looked carefully at the recipe, I figured it was ‘without shells’, but nice to hear from you just the same! Where are are you blogging from? (Please now cancel my email – thought you may not check blog everyday).
Now I’m going to bake…….
I’m blogging from the sunny (right now very hazy) island, Singapore.
Happy baking! hope your profiteroles turn out great!
