Foolproof Easy Cream Puffs Prepared in the Microwave

Foolproof Easy Cream Puffs Prepared in the Microwave

This is a very popular pastry among my friends, who all say it's delicious!

Ingredients

Cake flour
50 g
Butter
50 g
Water
75 ml
Eggs
2 large

Steps

1. Add the butter, water, and a pinch of the flour to a bowl and wrap it in cling film. Then heat the mixture up in the microwave until the water boils which should take 3-4 minutes (600 W).
2. Add the rest of the flour to the bowl all at once and mix it in very quickly with a whisk. Once mixed, heat it in the microwave for 1 minute and mix it with a whisk once again.
3. Whilst mixing the mixture from Step 2 add the well-beaten eggs a little at a time until the pastry dough is of a consistency where it drops slowly from the whisk.
4. Line a baking tray with aluminium foil and then with a sheet of parchment paper. Then scoop a spoonful of dough onto the tray to make each cream puff. Spray the cream puffs well with water.
5. Bake the cream puffs for 30-35 minutes at 190℃. Don't open the oven door for a while even after they've cooked or they may shrivel up.
6. Once the cream puffs have cooled, fill them with "Vanilla Bean-Packed Custard", Recipe ID: 1107375, and enjoy.
7. I made a double cream puff by filling it with the custard above and whipped cream.
