Ingredients

  • 1 cup water
  • 1 stick margarine or butter
  • 1 cup sifted all-purpose flour
  • 7 eggs, (4 for pastry, 3 for filling)
  • 3 cups milk
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 6 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 2 (1-oz) squares chocolate
  • 1 cup whipping cream

Preparation

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Heat water and margarine or butter to boiling point. Add flour and stir constantly until mixture is smooth and forms a ball when tested in cold water. Remove from heat and let cool. Beat in 4 eggs, 1 at a time and once incorporated, place into a pastry bag. On a greased cookie sheet, pipe out dough in thick lines that form éclairs. Bake for approximately 30 minutes or until light brown. Set aside to cool. Prepare filling by combining milk, sugar, salt and flour. Cook slowly until thickened. Add 3 beaten eggs and continue to cook until mixture is even thicker. Remove from heat, cool and add vanilla.

With a serrated knife, slice pastry puffs lengthwise, but not all the way through. Pipe custard mixture into the center. Melt chocolate for icing, add sugar and cream. Cook over medium heat until soft ball stage. Let cool and beat until smooth. Ice tops of the eclairs.
