This is the recipe that totally sold me on this machine. When I passed my red seal exam for cooking, this is something that I had been practicing. My eclairs were ok looking but never perfect. I had made them over and over again and never did I obtain the results that I got on my first try with the Thermomix. I have made them many more times and they have always turned out just like they did today. Almost perfect and for someone who doesn’t like baking, I still am amazed at this. I can make these sweet or savoury which is great to have around for the holidays. You just throw them in your freezer and take them out when you need them. This recipe is on page 131 in Everyday Cooking.
