Custard Cream Puffs.

lowest calorie ice creamAs I lately have some time, I had been surfing on the web last week. In search of fresh, stirring ideas, inspiring recipes that I’ve never used before, to impress my family with. Hunting for a while unfortunately could not discover too many interesting stuff. Just before I thought to give up on it, I came across this delicious and simple treat by chance. It looked so tempting
on its snapshot, it called for fast action.
It was not difficult to imagine how it’s created, its taste and how much my hubby will enjoy it. Actually, it is rather easy to please the man when it comes to treats. Yes, I’m a blessed one. Or maybe he is.Anyhow, I visited the site: Ambitiouskitchen and used the precise instuctions which were accompanied by impressive snap shots of the procedure. It really makes life much easier. I can suppose it’s a slight hassle to take pics in the middle of baking in the kitchen as you usually have sticky hands so I highly appreciate the hard work she devote for making this post and recipe easily implemented.
That being said I am inspired to present my own, personal dishes in the same way. Many thanks for the thought.
I was fine tuning the original formula to make it for the taste of my family. I can say it had been an incredible outcome. They loved the flavor, the thickness and loved having a delicacy like this in the midst of a lively workweek. They basically asked for more, a lot more. So the next time I’m not going to make the same mistake. I am likely to multiply the volume .

I have attempted sugar free ice cream recipe puffs in the past ~ ONCE, with significantly less than desireable result. My mistake was not doing my research and pre-reading before attempting the feat. So i got into problems in two spots :
a) Blending the eggs in to the hot paste
b) Baking whilst opening the oven door to check on their progress.
So the darned things came out smelling delish however they were all deflated and somewhat hard. I by no means made it to the filling with custard phase. My flatmate at the time came into your kitchen and laughed at me, and also attempted to throw the puffs at me to prove how solid these were. He thought these were the saddest puffs he previously ever noticed and he was correct.
3. Take it off the heat and keep stirring vigorously to great it down. Or add it towards the bowl of a stand mixer and utilizing a paddle attachemnt, mix the paste for about 2 mins.
4. Add eggs one at a time, making certain each addition is completely utilized before adding the next one. The paste you finally end up getting ought to be pliable but stiff enough to hold its form when piped out onto a cookie sheet. Tube about a dozen per sheet.
5. Bake in an extremely hot oven @ 210ºC for 10 mins. After that reduce the heat to 190ºC and allow them bake for an additional 15 mins. This step is important to ensure your puffs do not deflate upon removal through the oven.
Revise : EPIC FAIL!
Ok therefore i do not know what went wrong this time but once again the cream puff has bested me.
I hardly understand … I did everything best! I followed the recipe and in the long run everything did not turn out. My dough was way too runny and I was not able to tube it out onto the cookie trays. All of the demos I watched on YouTube demonstrated chefs, amatuer and professional as well, all piping out symmetrical round blobs of dough and they kept their shape perfectly. Mine appeared as if gloppy wedding cake batter.
I QUICKLY tried filling the good ones with the custard I made the night before, but actually THAT was a tragedy!! The custard did not firm up and it was impossible to fill up a pastry handbag with the stuff aside from tube them into pastry cases. Uuugh! I would experienced better lucky producing Gougeres (cheese puffs).
65 g cornstarch (ran out of cornstarch so I used custard natural powder, so I were left with a bright yellow mixture)
1.5 tsp vanilla extract
1. Bring to boil the milk and vanilla remove. If utilizing a vanilla bean, divide the bean and scrape out the seeds and add them combined with the pod to the dairy. Add 1 tsp sugars to sweeten the dairy. Medium low high temperature. Do NOT over scald your milk or it will taste funny. And do not boil it to an instant boil either. It’ll be ready when you begin seeing little frothy bubbles begin to form across the pan sides.
2. When the milk is hot plenty of, prep your eggs. Split eggs into a mixing bowl and whisk gently. In a separate bowl mix jointly the cornstarch and glucose. Combine the eggs and sugars + cornstarch in the bowl and you will get a heavy yellow mixture. Don’t let this sit on the bench for over 10 mins since it will switch grainy (sugars burn).
3. Take the milk off the heat and ladle some popular milk into the egg mix to temper. Add about 4 ladlefuls. Keep whisking at the same time or you’ll get scrambled eggs. If that occurs there is no saving the combination … you will need to start once again from scratch.
4. Once you’ve sufficiently tempered (brought up to temperatures) the eggs, now you can add the egg mixture directly back to the hot dairy mixture and come back it to a minimal flame. The combination will thicken nearly immediately so mix constantly using a whisk and do not take your eye off the pot for a second. Make sure to scrape the edges to avoid scalding or burning
5. You will literally feel the persistence from the custard mix change as soon as it begins thickening It is advisable to remove it the fire and whisk in your butter separately. Cool off the combination as fast as you possbly can and do not leave it lying on the range to interesting to air heat coz it is an egg combination and you never want it to poison anyone. Continue whisking to great it down. It can help if you immerse the container in an glaciers bath.
For my cream puffs … Achievement!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
