Eclairs, the first of many!

For some reason I’ve never made eclairs before.

I think that’s probably because I’m always trying to be good and a nice fat choux bun full of Chantilly cream and topped with chocolate is something I just cannot resist. If I don’t make them, I won’t eat them – simples!

But, then the other day I just thought I’d have a go and if I eat them all so be it, I’ll just have to get off the tube a stop earlier for a week or two.

I had a look a few different recipes for classic eclairs and the one I decided to follow is from the following book:

THE GREAT BRITISH BAKE OFF: HOW TO BAKE by Linda Collister.

http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/1849902682/ref=as_li_tf_tl?ie=UTF8&tag=thegreatbri00-21&linkCode=as2&camp=1634&creative=6738&creativeASIN=1849902682

It’s a really straightforward recipe and for a first time eclair maker like me, the result was pretty good.
