  5. That's a lot of mini cream puffs, and best of all, they are so dainty that makes eating so much easier.

  6. Is this mini size cream puff? Or it looks mini because a lot ? :) Very cute.

  7. HKChoo,
    My customer loves dainty ones that can be popped into the mouth.
    It also makes baking time shorter :) Good for me.

    My fillings always feel like mayonaise. Soft and creamy.

    It's about the size of a large calamansi.
    Customer requested to be "small".

  8. very sizes. Easy to eat. And the cream filling loads with my kids's favourite - corns !

  9. Wow! That's alot! And all so uniform in size! I like to make it petite as it's easy to eat but too time consuming.

  10. the filling looks so smooth, so petie size, cute leh

  11. Sounds so delicious!!!! And, really creamy... Great recipe.

  12. Wah, Wendy, that's a lot of cream puffs! Anything jagung sounds great to me, too! You've just reminded me the last time I made pate a choux was in June 2009. LOL! I checked back my Flickr, boy was I surprised or what!

    Hope to see you again, my friend! Miss you and your girl!

  13. mNhL,
    Oh, your kids like jagung.. me just soso.

    Blessed Homemaker,
    I did in 2 large trays, and my micro Combi oven can only do 1 tray at a time.Baked for 1 hour in total.

    Petite is nice :)

  14. Victoria,

    Haha, I wish to meet up soon too.

  15. Wah are you running a catering business too? That is a lot of cream puffs. It has been a while since I made this. I wish I can stuff this with some durian :)

  22. timelessbowties,
    Thanks for the feedback, glad they turned out great.
    Thanks in advance about your offer :)

  23. I tried this recipe b4 but disappointed as choux is flat and the bottom get burnt and stick to the paper or pan.pls advise,thanks.

  24. Sim mp,
    The choux pastry rises due to the steam produced by the eggs with the high temperature baking in the oven. It can't go flat even if it's not hot enough, it will just stay put like a ball and be rock hard or whichever way you piped it to be because there isn't enough sugar for it to spread and the butter is absorbed by the cooked flour. The choux pastry will expand and maybe later collaspe if it's underbaked and taken out from oven too soon, but flat? Can't be since ur oven is hot enough to get the base burnt and that is very very very hot as choux pastry can take very hot temperatures due to the high moisture and low sugar content.

    Did you bake the filling or the pastry?

  25. Hi Wendy,
    Thanks for ur reply.I tried the pastry but it failed so din try the filling.I tried cake flour mix with bread flour,plain flour too,but result is the same.I use spoon to scoop the mixture,it rises but later collapsed n turn it due to runny mixture or temperature?shall I leave it in oven for a few minutes or remove immediately when ready?cut when cool or when still hot?so sorry for asking for so many questions.My hubby likes cream puffs v much..he saw yours n say look tasty!

  26. Sim mp,
    Is the dough properly cooked and cooled before u added in the eggs?
    It won't collapse while baking halfway.
    It's very sturdy. U can remove it immediately or later after the baking time has finished, and it won't collapse. You can cut the slit anytime, but cutting while hot will release steam from the inside to make it drier.
    Add me in FB or email me, and send me pics after you cooked the dough, after you added in the eggs, and after baking. If not it's hard for me to help you troubleshoot.

    May I know what other things have you baked with your oven?

  27. Ok I will try oven is a small 16lt,pen sonic .I have already added u in fb.I love to bake bread and chiffon cake..

  28. Dear Wendy

    Yesterday tried out ur sweet corn cream puff recipe and the filling. The finished products were so sooooo... GOOD. The puffs stayed soft in the fridge even the next day.

    When I did not know how to bake, I always loved to buy cream puffs but now I can make them anytime I want, esp. durian puffs. So much economical to make my own durian puffs on a larger scale. In Singapore per box of 6 very small durian puffs can easily cost S$10.

    Thank you for giving us ur best recipes. Very grateful.

  29. Priscilla,
    Thanks for the feedback and compliments.
    The puffs were soft, but not soggy right?

  30. Absolutely, Wendy. Puffs were soft, not wet nor soggy. Puffs did not collapse at all, very sturdy even up till next day.

    Recipe a KEEPER!

  31. Dear Wendy

    Just to let u know, my sister shared some cream puffs and kuih tako which I made using ur recipes with her friends at the dancing school. All her friends gave the thumbs-up. Other bake, eg. the Coco Pandan cake using ur recipe was very very well rec'd. They cud not stop at one round but returned for second helping of the food.

    Thank you again and God bless

  32. Dear Wendy

    I have been using ur choux balls recipe for more than 2 times and very successful.

    However, the last time I made the choux balls, they tasted 'rubbery'. I can't figure out why. I wonder was it because I put the choux pastry while it was still quite hot into the piping bag.

    Appreciate ur help.

    Priscilla Poh

  33. Priscilla,
    Now you make me wonder, how come the choux pastry is still hot when you put into the piping bag?
    You should be leaving the cooked dough to cool to warm then only you beat in the eggs, it is no longer hot, not even warm.

  34. Thanks Wendy for your swift response.

    I usually waited till the hot dough in lukewarm stage before incorporating eggs one by one.

    The last time, I kind of added eggs one by one while the dough was rather warm. I remembered previously I only added egg one by one when dough was not that warm and when I piped out the balls, dough was not warm at all. This time, I did not pipe out the balls immediately but let the dough rest in the piping bag (I could still felt little bit warm when dough was in the bag) because my oven was busy with other baking still on.

    Wonder rubbery dough was because of the whole process of the warm dough.

    Priscilla Poh

  35. Priscilla,
    Frankly, I'm not really sure this time.
    Sometimes after baking 1 tray and I have more choux dough, I leave it in the piping bag.
    Sometimes I even let them rest for hours because I had to go out.
    I hoped you piped them the same as you piped them before. Sometimes overcrowding the pan can cause it to be not as crispy with the same baking time, so does the size of the piping.

  36. Good Day Wendy

    Thanks again for answering my question.

    Judging from your opinions, I think the reasons for the rubbery choux cud be due to overcrowding of my baking pan and I noticed the rubbery ones were the bigger balls.

    At first, I thought rubbery balls might be caused by the slightly warm dough that was put into the piping bag.

    Thank you for the precious knowledge given to me.
