Paris Brest

Recipe: Paris Brest

Recipe from Paris Brest, one of my favorite cakes. I took a long time to make up my mind, in reality it was Kiki who challenged me and I frankly love it. I don’t regret it, it’s a lot of work but the result is there. It is surely one of the most delicious pieces of pastry. I love the softness of the cream and the crunchiness of the choux pastry. Indeed I had it maybe a little overcooked, but I loved it, a real killer. I thought it was way too big and we did not have enough, it must be said that there were greedy and greedy that day. I will present to you in a few weeks, an interesting version of Paris Brest in a glass and there again they did not have time to hang around.
