Millefeuille

Millefeuille is a traditional French pastry. I believe the English speaking world knows it as a Napoleon. Traditionally, a millefeuille consists of three layers of puff pastry and in between those layers, two layers of pastry cream. There are many variations of the traditional one with fruits, chocolate, caramel or anything really. I enjoy eating millefeuille, I like the crisp buttery layers of puff pastry in combination with the cream. yummm. The traditional way of making this pastry takes a lot of time, here is a quick and simple version for you!

Mini coffee eclairs

L’eclair au café de Christophe Adam!

A couple of months ago I started to gain interest for this book of Christophe Adam called Eclairs!, it was only available in French (my French is still very poor) and I would have to order it from abroad with high shipping costs. So I procrastinated and never ordered.

To my surprise I saw the book is now available in Dutch! (yep, my main language) I went to the store and bought it immediately. These are the first eclairs I have made from this book and I’m sure many more will follow. ^^

These are mini eclairs, they are 6cm long, filled with coffee pastry cream, glazed with coffee glaze and decorated with a chocolate coffee bean.

Currently I’m busy with work and saving money so I can attend a pastry course in Paris. It is very expensive so for those who would like to help me, I made you a button. You can find it in the sidebar! I’m not really expecting anyone to help me, but it doesn’t hurt to ask right?

Thanks for reading my blog and I will try to post more :) -can’t guarantee it will actually happen-
