Chocolate éclairs

Today I'm craving for little sweet, so I made this delicious éclairs.


    

INGREDIENTS


6 tbsp butter, cut into pieces
11⁄2 cups all-purpose flour
3 large eggs, lightly beaten
2 cups heavy cream
7oz (200g) semisweet chocolate

I add 1/2 cup sugar .


METHOD
  • Preheat the oven to 400°F (200°C). Melt the butter in a pan with 2 cups
    cold water and sugar, then bring to a boil. Remove from the heat, and stir in the
    flour. Beat well with a wooden spoon until well combined.
  • Lightly beat the eggs and add to the flour and butter mixture a little at
    a time, beating constantly. Transfer to a piping bag when the mixture
    becomes smooth and comes away easily from the sides of the pan.
  •  Pipe 2in (5cm) lengths of mixture onto 2 baking sheets lined with
    parchment paper. Bake for 20 minutes, then make a slit down the
    side of each one. Return to oven for 5 minutes. Remove and leave to cool.
  • Whisk the cream until soft peaks form. Spoon or pipe into each éclair.
    Place the chocolate in a heatproof bowl over a pan of simmering water
    and stir smooth. Spoon over the éclairs and serve.
