Easy & Delicious Eclairs Recipe
Eclairs may see intimidating at first but I promise that if you follow each of these steps and use the correct measurements you’ll be so thrilled with the end result!
The eclair pastry is made from pate choux dough. Once the eclairs are baked, they are filled with a creamy and smooth vanilla custard, then dipped in a velvety, rich chocolate ganache. It doesn’t get much better than that.
Baking Easy & Delicious Eclairs
The most important thing to remember for this recipe is to adjust the temperature of the oven without ever opening it. This will lock in the moisture and allow your eclairs to rise and puff up perfectly while becoming a beautiful golden brown pastry.
