Gluten free Chocolate eclairs

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 )

2 eggs

60g unsalted butter

150g water

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



Happy Baking

  1. I think these look like Show Stoppers! And having watched the Great British Bake Off, I will have try them out (although I will be using an Egg Replacement Product due to my allergies so will have to see how they turn out!). I know Paul & Mary would be very pleased with your Star Baking!!!
