National Cream Puff Day

It is not difficult to find someone who loves light, airy, and succulent desserts. Cream puffs are cream-filled treats. This delightful treat was created from where? What year did it first appear? It’s now time to discover what National Cream Puff Day really is!

Cream puffs are a unique pastry and are made differently from other recipes in the same category. They were created by Catherine de Medici’s pastry cook to make the baked puff shells for Henry II of France in 1540. Both the name profiterole and the pastry that made it originally came from France. However, they are now one of Gibraltar’s main national dishes.

Since 1604 the English language has had the word profiterole, also known as profitrolle, prophitrole or profiterolle. It was borrowed from France. It is not clear what the original meaning of profiterole was in English or French, but it later came to refer to a type of roll “baked in the ashes” in French. A 17th-century French recipe for Potage de profiteolles, also known as profiterolles, describes a soup made of small breads. The broth is flavored with almond broth, truffles, coxcombs and other items.

Although the current cream puff is not as old, it was clearly mentioned in the 19th century. The New World saw the cream puff quickly become a popular dessert. The “cream puff” is a dessert that has been on American restaurant menus since 1851.

Start with the essential ingredients

Now for the filling

These are the steps that you need to follow in order to make cream puffs.

Preheat the oven to 425F. Bring the water, butter and salt to a boil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Once the mixture boils, take the saucepan off the heat. Mix all of the flour together with a wooden spoon. Continue stirring for 30-60 seconds until the flour is fully incorporated. Stir the mixture for 30 seconds on low heat to evaporate any moisture.

Use a paddle attachment to transfer the mixture to a mixer. Mix on medium speed. Mix at medium speed. Add 1 egg at a while to the mixer, stopping every other addition to scrape the bowl. Mix the ingredients until the dough becomes smooth and glossy. When the dough is lifted from the bowl, it should become thick and fall steadily from the beaters. Mix the rest of the egg into the dough until it is incorporated.

Pipe the dough onto a baking sheet using a pastry bag with a large plain tip. Mix the egg yolk with 1 1/2 teaspoons water. To reduce the points, brush the eggs wash on the top of the rounds. Bake for 15 minutes. After that, reduce heat to 375F. Bake until puffy and lightly golden brown (about 20 more). Bake at a low temperature. Let it cool on a baking sheet.
