Saffron Chocolate Eclairs

Ever since I’ve joined Daring Bakers, I have been so motivated to bake, even with the occasional slips. I sill manage to get up and bake again. =) August challenge was to make “Pierre Herme” Chocolate Éclairs. So a BIG gigantic thank you to Tony Tahhan and to MeetaK for this fantastic challenge, French pastries is not as complicated as you would think!

I tried to make those Éclairs a few times, and finally to get rid of the eggyness of the éclairs, I added a pinch of ground cardamom and a teaspoon of vinegar. For the pastry cream, I made a basic pastry cream with saffron and a splash of rose water.

And finally, I would like to wish you a happy peaceful Ramadan to you and your families.

I feel the same way about the DB challenges. They force me to make things I'd never have considered before, and usually I learn something.

Happy Ramadan to you and your family.
