Easy Bavarian Cream Puff Recipe

Cream puffs always used to intimidate me, that is until I got brave enough to try them. They are surprisingly easy to make. You will be shocked.

In a medium sauce pan, mix your sugar, flour and salt with a whisk.

Gradually add the milk and mix well. In a separate bowl whisk egg yolks and add to the pan. Mix well.

Bring mixture to a boil over medium high heat stirring constantly until mixture becomes thick and has the consistency of pudding.

Take off heat and add butter and vanilla to the pan, stirring until well combined and butter is melted.

Cool completely. Take a 1/2 cup of heavy whipping cream, whipping it until soft  peaks form and gently folding the whipped cream into the custard mixture.

Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees. In a sauce pan bring butter, water and salt to a boil. Add 1 cup of flour to the boiling liquid all at once and stir until a ball forms.

Take pan off heat and let mixture cool for 5 minutes. After the flour mixture has cooled, start beating in the eggs, one at a time. Mixing well after each egg.

Mixture should be smooth and glossy after you beat in your 4th egg.

Place dough by spoonfuls on a parchment covered baking sheet and bake for 40 minutes at 400 degrees.

Cut cream puff half way through the center with a knife and pipe in your easy Bavarian cream. Sprinkle tops with powdered sugar and enjoy!
