{Advenutres in the Kitchen : Profiteroles}

Profiteroles is something I had always thought to be quite tricky. They look it right? But as the letter P came up on this months #alphabakes challenge I decieded to give them ago (while my sister was round entertaining the small one!) check out the hosts over at Caroline Makes and More than the occisional baker

As I was intending this first attempt to fail I did not grab out my big camera for the making off! Plus had to get my sister to read some of the instructions to me as I did not have enought hands!!

 So it began - was quite a quick process to get the dough together. (please excuse the mess - I had also been cooking curry, patties and rice today! - mammouth clean up on hubbys part after!)
 The dough made up enough to make 18 little splodges of dough across the baking sheet.
And ta-dah out they came looking like actual profiteroles, not perfectly sized or anything but looking like them!

For the filling we opted for Kellys Cornish Clotted Cream Ice Cream - I had been asked to give a review of this lovely ice cream - Um yes! And this made a lovely alternative for being stuffed into little splodges of choux pasty. The ice cream has a really lovely creamy flavour and texture and was also a big hit with the small one.

To top off our profiteroles I whipped up a quick nutella sauce ( 2 tblespoons of nutella, 1 tablespoon of creme fraiche (what was in the fridge, but any cream would work) and then a dash of full fat milk - give it a good mix - then drizzle over!)

This was a rather yummy way to round of a sunday. This is also something to cross of my 'must attempt in the kitchen list'

  2. Mmm, profiteroles are one of my favourite puddings! I've never made them before though but my younger cousin has been a pro at them since she was little!
