Eclair with hazelnut praline custard
You all might have started planning and preparing for upcoming holidays, and no table will complete without those baked goodies.These classic french dessert – eclairs for sure will attract all those sweet tooths. They are made out of choux dough and filled with custard and topped with chocolate ganache. Eclairs are one of my favorite pastry and I enjoy making and indulging in it. Usually I used to prepare them with vanilla custard and this time I have used my favorite ever, most delicious Hazelnut praline Custard /Pastry cream Ohhh, they were soo beautiful marriage of yumminess!!
Unsweetened pastry with moderately sweet hazelnut pastry cream and topped with chocolate ganache – can that go wrong?!The pastry will puff up with that hollow inside to fill the cream. This combination was there in my mind for quite sometime and finally I am happy it happened. You don’t need to do everything on the same day. What I did was, prepared my pastry cream previous day so that it can get chilled well. Next day prepared the pastry and when they were cooling down, made the chocolate ganache.
You can make them in advance if you expect any guest as well. Let me know in comments how you enjoyed this eclairs. Lets see the recipe……..
