Tonight is the Great british bake off on BBC1 and tonights show stopper is Chocolate eclairs, I thought I would make a batch to enjoy while watching the contestants battle it out.
75g gluten free plain flour ( I used doves farm )
60g unsalted butter
gluten free chocolate ( I used green and blacks 70% )
Put water and butter into a saucepan
Melt butter and bring to the boil then reduce heat and
add flour and stir vigorously until it forms a soft ball
Leave to cool
Either add beaten eggs by hand and beat in the eggs, this is tough!
or put in a food processor and add eggs gradually until you have a smooth paste
fill a piping bag with the choux pastry
pipe onto a greased or parchment paper prepared tray
I was able to make 9
bake in a hot oven 220c for 10 mins then reduce heat to 190c for a further 20 mins
cool and cut in half
for chocolate topping just melt some gluten free chocolate and dip eclairs into the melted chocolate
once cool, fill with extra thick cream
Delicious and gluten free!
These are no show stoppers but they taste delicious
