Rouleau with a difference . . . Choux Rouleau!

What will you do if you have this ingredients such as flour, milk, butter, eggs, salt and water? For me I will take the best solution, is to make some choux paste. Choux paste is the lightest, crispiest, airiest pastry, which can be use to make profiteroles, éclairs or savoury gougères.

It puffs up in the oven until it is eventually set by the heat. The airiness, in fact, is caused because choux has a high water content, which is turned into steam during baking and this forces the pastry shell outwards and gives it volume. What is really good about choux is that it doesn’t call for any particular pastry skills, like lightness of hand or careful rolling.

I alway like to pipe choux paste on to a baking sheet but this time I decided to make something out of the ordinary, I had my choux flat similar to pancake shape. By having a flat choux, I can turn it into a rouleau, Choux Rouleau. Why? I guessed I might had been infected from the last rouleau baking class and got to say it was fun. I think I should start a class on the art of rolling!

In this creation, sliced strawberries, kiwis and vanilla mousse were used as the main filling but I got to say I already had some different filling in mind, for one, the durian mousse. I got to say this Choux Rouleau will be on my baking list this coming weekend as I got a few close friends coming over to dine . . . Love Sunny Yaw

    Great idea using choux pastry instead! Thanks. Now I have alternative ways to use up extras from making cream puff ^.^
