    The history of the dish

    Choux pastry appeared in France during the reign of Henry II of Valois, who decided in 1933 to marry the Italian Catherine de Medici, who, when moving, brought with her her personal Italian chef named Panterelli. It was with the advent of this woman in France that all remnants of the past were eliminated, including in cooking. The Italian Panterelli revealed to the French his recipe for choux pastry, which is why disputes about the origin of the recipe have not subsided to this day. The Italians claim that this is their original recipe, while the French, in turn, consider it theirs.

    Custard cakes, like a dessert, were invented by a French youth who, as a child, had to leave his parental home due to famine times and look for a job and a place to live. His name was Marie-Antoine Karem. Wandering, he got a job as an assistant in a pastry shop and after 17 years he became famous throughout France, thanks to the creation of his pastry masterpieces.

And the ingredients are very, very simple - half a glass of liquid (you can use water in half with milk or water alone), butter and flour. That's all! Surprisingly, complex-looking recipes often hide very simple steps. You will also need a non-stick saucepan and a mixer or blender with a whisk attachment. Although, you can use manual whipping.

      Prepare the ingredients for the dough.

    2. Pour the milk mixed with water into the saucepan and add the butter cut into pieces there.

      Move the liquid and butter into a saucepan.

    3. We put the saucepan with milk and butter on the fire and wait for the oil to dissolve, the liquid boils, then reduce the fire to the very minimum.

    4. Pour all the flour into the hot oily liquid.

    5. Stir continuously with a spatula until all the flour is brewed and turns into a thick homogeneous dough with a slight grayish tint, then remove the saucepan from the heat.

      Brewing the dough in a saucepan.

    6. We shift the custard base into a more convenient bowl, in which we will continue to cook our dough and cool it in it for 2-3 minutes. Then, one by one, using a mixer, blender or hand whisk, carefully beat the eggs into the cooled dough. Make sure the dough is already cold so that the egg white does not curdle.

      Beat the eggs one at a time into the dough.

    7. The finished custard dough should be homogeneous, without lumps, without any inclusions. By consistency, it should be like thick, thick sour cream, but it should be easy to pry with a spoon.

      The finished dough should be homogeneous.

    8. Turn on the oven to heat up to 220 degrees. With the help of a confectionery syringe, bag or cornet, or carefully, with the help of a tablespoon, we plant our future eclairs on a baking sheet lined with baking paper. Choose the length that is convenient for you, not forgetting to leave a distance between the cakes so that they do not stick together during baking.

    9. We bake the eclairs for 15 minutes at 220 degrees, then reduce the heat by 170-180 degrees and bake for another 10 minutes, as if drying them on low heat. Remove the eclairs from the oven and cool completely.

      We cool the finished eclairs.

    10. While the custard eclairs are cooling, prepare the filling. To do this, take cold cream and pour it into a bowl for whipping.

    11. Whip the cream very carefully, constantly controlling the speed, stop whipping as soon as they become thick, add powdered sugar to them (in our recipe, powder with splashes of vanilla) and, if possible, a confectionery thickener for cream.

      Whip cream with powdered sugar.

    Meal value

    Of course, this dessert is very rich in carbohydrates, which means that you should not abuse it. However, in the recipe, we recommend using whipped cream as a filling, which means that the calorie content of the dish is significantly reduced and it becomes lighter and more airy. The cream itself is rich in protein and vitamins PP, B, C, A, C, and also contains calcium and vitamin D in the optimal ratio.

    However, it is not recommended to use them for people with diseases of the heart and blood vessels due to the high cholesterol content. Due to the fact that the custard dough turns out to be very airy during baking, a completely full-fledged cake contains a very thin layer of dough, in which cakes from other types of dough of similar sizes are significantly inferior to it.
