Chocolate Eclairs

I am currently struggling to find things to bake during lock down, not only because of the flour shortage, but because unfortunately my boyfriend isn’t a massive fan of cake (I promise its not my baking!) I could easily eat a cake to myself in a week but its not a habit I want to get into so I am constantly trying to find recipes my boyfriend will eat!

Chocolate Eclairs is one of the things he does like so I thought I’d take on the challenge and make some! Choux pastry can be difficult but once you nail it the first time,its not as bad as it sounds. I’ll provide an easy recipe for Eclairs as well as top tips for full proof Choux Pastry!

Egg-less Chocolate Chip Cookies

Another week, another cookie recipe. This week is to help those who can’t find any eggs on the shelves at the minute. These chocolate chip cookies are delicious with a cup of tea and are so quick to make and bake. You can switch up the chocolate chips for something different like M&Ms or maybe you still have some Mini Eggs to get through from Easter! The egg is replaced with milk and oil which sounds gross but you really can’t tell!

I promise the next recipe will not be cookie related, but you have to admit, you cant beat a good cookie!

Chocolate Profiteroles

Something I love about the weekend is that it is always a great excuse to have pudding! For me, pudding has to go beyond a slice of cake. Pudding has to be far more- usually incredibly rich and smothered in cream or chocolate. If you’re going to have a treat you’ve got to make it worth your while! One of the only pudding’s me and my other half can agree on is Profiteroles. I think it is one pudding some people would struggle to dislike. Light pastry, filled with freshly whipped cream drenched in chocolate sauce. As I said, you’ve got to make it worth your while…

Cheesecake is often a winner all round! That is why it tends to be my ‘go to’ whenever I am baking for a dinner with friends or family. It’s always popular and there is plenty to go round!
