I just realised that this post would have been my 800th post since i started blogging. Makes me wonder how many posts will there be before the final curtain closes in such a fun and interesting adventure.
I guessed it took me 800 posts to finally realise that food blogging doesn't have to be limited to food reviews or even cooking recipes, but baking too. Nothing can best describe this than the cliche quote; its better to be late than never.
The first thing we set out to bake, we decided to make choux pastry, the fancy word for basically the puffs that forms your cream puffs or if you want to call it differently; profiterole. Opening your oven before it is cooked through is a cardinal sin so one has to be patient and make sure the timing is absolutely spot on.
Use the recipe from Taste
Real simple ingredients like butter, flour, water and eggs is all you need.
Once the choux pastry shells are cooked, the next step is up to you. Lazy? Buy some custard and fit some blueberries and you got a simple dessert. If you want, pipe the custard in. If not there is jam, cream or whatever you fancy!
Can't believe this will be the first Monday back in work in 3 weeks! Hope this week will be the first full working week for the year, provided the Cyclone doesn't hit Brisbane town.
