Easy Baking: Cream Puffs

    Prepare all the utensils needed:
  • Non-stick Pan
  • Wooden Spoon/Spatula
  • Baking Sheet
  • Measuring Cups
  • Measuring Spoons
  • Mixing Bowl
  • Ice Cream Scoop
  • Hand/Stand Mixer

    Ingredients and Procedure:
  1. Using a non-stick pan, boil 1 cup of water and 1/2 cup butter.
  2. When it reached the first boil, add 1/4 teaspoon of salt and 1 cup all purpose flour. Stir to cook until stiff or the flour is cooked thoroughly.
  3. Remove from heat, transfer to a mixing bowl and let it cool.
  4. When the mixture warmed up, add 4 eggs one at a time while beating. Beat for a minute more after adding the last egg.
  5. Grease your baking sheet with oil (do not use any liner).
  6. Using an ice cream scoop, scoop out the batter and arrange it to the baking sheet 1 inch apart.
  7. Beat 1 egg on a small bowl. Brush the top of each cream puff batter with the egg wash.
  8. Pre-heat the oven for about 10-15 minutes at 425 degrees Fahrenheit. When done, reduce the temperature to 220 degree Fahrenheit, place the baking sheet at the middle layer of your oven and bake for 20-25 minutes.

    Tips and Tricks!
  • When using a smaller ice cream scoop, you may bake the pastry for about 15 minutes top.
  • Never add the eggs if the mixture is still hot.
  • After baking place immediately in the refrigerator to refrain from shrinking.
  • Put the filling if you're ready to serve so that the cream puff won't sag.

You can just use hand mixer or a whisk in doing this recipe :) and I don't have any ebook for cooking... Just sharing all I know and did so far on my baking career :)
