Easy cream puff recipe

Since my little cousins are here, so I thought why not make some cream puffs, they are easy to make, delicious and im sure the kids would love it! And I made some coloured sugar glaze so my little cousins could get their hands dirty and have a little fun.

Makes: 30

Time: 70 minutes


Choux pastry

  • 150g plain flour
  • 185ml water
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 75 g butter
  • 3 eggs

Sugar glaze

  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1-2 tablespoons milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Any food colouring of your choice( optional)


  1. Sift the flour into a bowl
  2. Combine the water, salt and butter in medium sauce pan over medium heat until just boiling.
  3. Remove from the heat and add in the flour while stirring with a wooden spoon till combined.
  4. Return to the heat and continue stirring till smooth and it doesn’t stick to the side of the pan. ( panada)
  5. Remove the sauce pan from the heat and let it cool for 3 to five minutes.
  6. Add in one egg at a time and stir with a wooden spoon till fully combined, then add the next and repeat.
  7. Put in a piping bag and pipe on a baking tray on a parchment paper and bake in a preheated oven at 200 degrees for 20-25 minutes.
  8. Once ready fill with pastry cream which could be prepared earlier.        ( check out my dragonfruit pastry cream
  9. For the glaze, just add all the ingredients together and stir till combined well. 

Happy faces
Although I do not prefer having them with the glaze as it sweet, but the kids love them!
A good way to get kids to help out.
