Made some creme puffs with the little one tonight. Red bean and green tea whipped cream filling. The beauty of these creme puffs is that it’s a small batch size that can be made in a toaster oven.
- 75 g all purpose flour
- 75 g water
- 50 g milk
- 50 g unsalted butter
- 2 eggs
Whipped Cream Filling
- 235 g of whipping cream
- 15 g sugar
- 5 g matcha powder
- Preheat toaster oven to 425 degrees
- Combine water, milk and unsalted butter in a small pot. In medium heat bring to a simmer. Mix to incorporate the butter.
- Take off heat and add the flour. Mix until thoroughly combined.
- Put the dough back on medium heat. Continue to mix until dough is 180 degrees F. – you hear sizzling and beads of fat are on the surface of the pot.
- Take off heat, mix and cool slightly (don’t want to scramble those eggs).
- Add eggs, one at a time and mix/beat to combine.
- Using a piping bag or cookie scoop, divide pate choux dough into 3cm (1 1/4″) mounds. Smooth tops with the back of a wet spoon or fingers.
- Bake at 425 degrees F for 15 minutes.
- Lower temperature to 350 degrees F with convection (or 375 degrees F) and bake for 10 minutes.
- Take out of the oven, and make a 1cm (1/2″) slit on the side of each creme puff to allow the steam to escape.
- Place back in an off oven with door propped oven with a wooden spoon. Allow to dry out for 30-45 minutes more.
