Profiteroles with coffee cream and drizzled with coffee-chocolate sauce
It is my daughter’s birthday today. She is a smart, sweet and very caring girl. She also has very diverse and sophisticated palette. So when I asked her what kind of cake she wants for her birthday, she said,” Mom, can I have profiteroles instead of a cake this year?”. This is what prompted me to make the profiteroles today. I had watched Anne Burrell make these on one of her shows and had scratched down her recipe, this is my take on her recipe. The ingredients are very simple, yet the result is a fancy pastry. Profiteroles is a french pastry made with a french pastry dough, Choux Pastry. Choux pastry is an easy to make versitile dough. You can make many things like eclairs, cream puffs using this dough. It is light and airy and is perfect for filling it up with whipped cream or ice cream.
