Strawberry And Raspberry Eclairs Recipe

This recipe is brought to you by Ocado

If you can’t get your berry fix from strawberries alone, why not throw in some sweet, juicy raspberries too? These eclairs are the perfect party food for guests to pick up and enjoy.

Ingredients

  • 50g unsalted butter, diced small
  • 65g plain flour, sieved onto baking paper
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 600ml double cream
  • 225g raspberries
  • 15 strawberries, sliced
  • 150g icing sugar, sieved

Method

  1. Preheat oven to 200°C/180°C fan/gas 6 and line two baking sheets with greaseproof paper.
  2. Place 150ml water and the butter into a saucepan over a medium heat. Once the butter has melted and the water starts to boil, turn off the heat, slide the flour into the mix and beat with a wooden spoon until you have a ball of dough. Transfer to a mixing bowl and cool for 10 mins. Little by little, beat in the egg with a wooden spoon. You might not need all the egg – you want the mix to fall from the spoon after a count of 5.
  3. Transfer to a piping bag with a 1.5cm nozzle and pipe out straight lines of choux pastry, 12cm long, with plenty of space in between. Bake in the oven for 20-25 mins until risen, golden and crisp.
  4. Remove from the oven, make a hole with a skewer in the base, lay them upside down on the baking sheet and return to the oven for another 5 mins to dry out. Then remove from the oven and allow to cool.
  5. Crush 150g of the raspberries. Whisk the double cream to medium peaks and stir through the crushed raspberries.
  6. Push the remaining 75g of raspberries through a sieve and mix with the icing sugar to make the icing.
  7. Once fully cool, slice the eclairs in half and spread cream over the bases, followed by the strawberry slices. Use a little more cream inside the lid to stick it on. Top them all with pink icing.
