Bakery Classics: Eclairs


Today I set out to cross off a baked treat that has been on my list for quite some time. Then, while working out of the giant behemoth that is Baking Illustrated I got sucked into several other recipes that I have got to try. Baking Illustraited is amazing, not just for its tried and tested quality recipes, but for the spark that ignites inside of you every time you dust of the cover and let yourself sink into a field of cream filled, dipped, and glazed dreams.

Todays eclairs reminded me of what Pass the Sushi is supposed to be for myself. A challenge. A taking on of recipes that inspire and push me a little bit further. It’s easy to get wrapped up in the fat kid friendly, delicious, quick and easy foods that I post from time to time. They are EASY! Which a lot of you want. Don’t have a lot of dishes and I can snap a few pics and publish a post in no time. But I still need to challenge myself.

There will never be a day when quick dinner fixins is done away with, what’s the fun in that? But it’s time to remind myself of the game for me and kick things up a notch. Get my hands dirty and get back to work in the kitchen.

My aunt's partner makes the most amazing elcairs and cream puffs.

Glad you are challenging yourself!

You are a brave woman! I have been thinking of making eclairs, but they completely intimidate me.
