These are a little bit impressive. They don't last long, and nor should they. Profiteroles are long considered to be French although the original inventor of the recipe was an Italian pastry chef in the court of Catherine of Medici...yes waay back.
Choux pastry is easy to make in the Thermomix, though you can still have a few issues. With our recipe you can make profiteroles, eclairs, the Polish Vanilla Slice, or even our savoury breakfast egg and bacon eclairs
This recipe is legitimately profiteroles (the round puffed shape) filled with chocolate pastry cream and topped with ganache and raspberries. You simply cannot go wrong! Enjoy.
