How to Make Creampuffs

Sunday, July 29, 2012
So I thought I'll post one of the things we tried baking last week with my sister and cousins. The last baking thing I posted was about a year or two ago LOL. 
Well, we've been thinking about making these creampuffs for a long time and we finally got a chance to make them. It's actually a lot easier than we thought. This was just our first try and they turned out PERFECT!
So let's get started!

Ingredients you'll need to make the puffs without the filling:
  • cold water (250mL = 1 cup)
  • butter, diced (100g = 7 tablespoons)
  • pinch of salt
  • plain flour (125g = 1/2 cup)
  • 4 eggs
  • (Optional: food coloring)

 For the filling you can use anything you want. 
The four of us decided to use whipped cream and Nutella.

So first preheat the oven to 220 C゚= 428 F゚. 
We preheat it to 425 F゚since our oven goes by 5s.

Next, make the water come to a boil and then add the butter and salt to melt it.

When the butter is all melted, add the flour and continue to stir until it looks like this.

 Then, take it off the stove and let it cool so it's warm to the touch. We sped up the process by taking a cold pot of water and putting our pot over it and continued stirring. When it is warm to the touch add in ONE egg and keep stirring. The reason it has to be cool is because you don't want the egg to cook in pieces. You want the egg mixed all together with the dough. It should look something like this.

 Keep adding in ONE egg at a time and stirring. Don't add more than that because you might not be able to stir fast enough without having the egg cook. After adding more eggs (one at a time), the mixture should look glossy like this.

 When you finished mixing, you put it in a little baggy or a pipebag if you have one. We just DIYed it with one of those ziplock bags. You can make the dots however big you want. They don't run so however big you make the dots, that's how big it will be when it finish baking. They poof up!
★Make sure you use a not greasy pan.★ 
We lined ours with aluminium foil for easy clean up.

We tried to make purple creampuff by mixing red and blue food coloring but it didn't work out LOL. 
They turned dark brown.

This is how they turned out in 15 minutes. They look so puffy and cute!
Let them cool for a bit.

 For the filling you need to make holes at the bottom. 
We used knives and chopsticks to make them LOL. We're so Asian.
We used whipped cream at first, but we ended up running out so we used Nutella instead. (◕ω◕)

(ノ◕ヮ◕)ノ*:・゚✧*:・゚ Voila! You're done! 

You can eat it as soon as you're done, but the four of us prefer them to be frozen so we put it in the freezer for a while before eating them.

We got our recipe here.

Hope you guys enjoy!
Feel free to leave me suggestions of what to make next and my sister, cousins, and I will try to make them
