Frasier Choux: Traditional cake in choux pastry form

Making choux pastry for me is quite fun, well, mixing checking, piping and waiting for it in front of the oven I love every steps.



This time, I make my Frasier with choux pastry, instead making Frasier cake (if you want to make the traditional one follow this recipe). Inside of my Frasier Choux are the same elements, pastry cream, butter cream and yes, strawberries.
I know that some people are afraid when making choux pastry, that the pastry won't puff up or it will collapse after baking, I will tell you the secret of making it.
There are some keys that you need to remember.
First: When place the milk (or water) and butter over the heat, you have to let the mixture become rolling boil before adding the flour.
Second: Mixing the flour quickly and throughly (don't forget to sift the flour before using).
Third: Place the mixture over low heat again, this step will remove some moisture from the batter, don't skip it.
Fourth: Don't add the egg into the piping hot batter, let it cool slightly, or you will cook the egg before time.
Fifth: Check the batter all the time, you will need less or more egg, don't just throw the egg into the batter (it's the most important step).
Sixth: The pastry need to be baked and dry, I always preheat the oven to the hottest setting, then lower it to suit the recipe, as the choux will be puff as soon as it goes into the oven. After that lower the heat until the choux become completely dry.
If you can do all of these steps (it's not hard ^^), your choux pastry will light and not going to collapse for sure.
I love this Frasier Choux, (Ok, I love my own creation, haha), because when using choux the pastry give a light crunchiness (from the cookie) and each bite you will have just enough butter cream, not a lot of it as when you eating the cake one. Serve it with a cup of fruity hot tea is the best afternoon treat!
