Disclaimer: This post was supposed be posted months ago, but I forgot it in the drafts folder, so here’s Paris Brest, just a little late.
This months Daring Baker’s challenge was paris brest. When first hearing that name I panicked slightly, mostly because french desserts are notoriously difficult. But then I read the description and realized that paris brest is essentially a circular cream puff. And you get to slice it in half rather than trying to fill it with a pastry bag (which is always the part I can never get right). Cream puffs aren’t actually that hard, in fact you can make them all in one pan. So I challenge anyone reading this post – don’t be scared of the cream puff, grab a pan and impress all your friends/family with this dessert!
