Chocolate Eclairs Recipe


70g plain flour, sieved
50g hard margarine
150 ml water
2 slightly beaten eggs
200 mls Fresh cream
Cooking chocolate


Sieve the flour on to a sheet of kitchen foil
Melt the margarine in the water in a pot
Remove from heat
Tip in all the flour at once
Beat well with a wooden spoon until mixture forms a smooth lump in the center of the pot
Add a little of the egg mixture and beat again until mixture sticks in a smooth lump again
Continue adding the egg in small amountd and beat after each addition until mixture is thick and shiny
Put the mixture into a piping bag and stand for 10 minutes
Pipe lines about 3 inches long and 2 inches apart on a damp baking tray
Bake at 220 degrees celcius for 30 minutes or until golden and firm

Once the eclairs are baked, remove from the oven and transfer to a wire cooling rack.
Take each ├ęclair and cut along the length to let the steam escape (otherwise they will sink)

Once cooled fill with whipped cream and drizzel the top of each with melted chocolate (let the chocolate cool but not set, before you pour on your eclairs)
