Hello Everyone =)
So today in “FRENCH COOKING WITH A TWIST” I want to show you the cute little Sugar puffs called Chouquettes!! Here is the second recipe from My little Paris Kitchen by Rachel Khoo:
Ingredients: 4 eggs, 125ml water, 125ml milk, 100g Butter, 1 teaspoon of salt, 1 teaspoon of sugar, 170g flour, icing sugar for dusting, 100g nibbled sugar
Preheat the oven to 180C. Pour the water and the milk into a pan and add the butter, salt and sugar. Put the pan on a high heat until the butter is melted. Turn down the heat and add the flour. First it will look like mashed potatoes but beat it hard until its a smooth ball.
Take the pan of the heat and keep beating until the dough is cold enough so you can touch it and then add an egg at a time . Each time it will look like you destroyed it but just keep on beating it and it will be a dough again =)
Fill it into a pipe (as you can see in the picture I created my own, but I would strongly suggest you buy a real one, that will make the forming of the puffs a lot easier!). Form it to walnut-sized balls on to a tray. Pat down any points with a little water, otherwise they will burn in the oven.
Dust the puffs with icing sugar and then sprinkle them with the nibbled sugar (I used little chocolate pieces =)). Bake it for around 20 minutes or until they are golden brown!
Prep Time: 30min, Baking Time: 20min
I have to say I really like them! They are unexpectedly fluffy and puffy, so delicious! They can also be done with cheese as a salty alternative! Yummy!!
I hope you will enjoy them and have a really nice weekend!
Love Katie ♥
