Profiteroles

Origins of the recipe

  • The pastry « Profiterole » was born in France, before the XIX century, but was actually different than today : Profteroles were either savory of sweet.
  • Starting the XIX century, the pastry chef sieur Heuzé (located in rue Coquillière, Paris) was selling profiteroles with chocolate and vanilla.

About this recipe

This recipe is essentially that of the classic Profiteroles, a Choux Pastry filled with ice cream. To make this classic dessert more trendy, I decided to make it square (actually a cube), though a few pastry chefs already made it (I discovered this later). Enjoy the recipe !

Ingredients

Profiteroles 
A Choux Pastry Dough.
For the Choux Pastry Dough, see HERE.

Ice Cream. Any flavor goes !

A few Pecan Nuts. Crushed Pecan Nuts

A small quantity of Dark Chocolate

Steps

Profiteroles
  • If you decide to make your own ice cream, you want to pour it into square molds right after making the ice cream.
  • If you buy the ice cream, make sure it’s not hard solid, otherwise let it melt a few minutes at room temperature, and then pour into the silicon molds
Once your ice cream is in the mold, freeze it for at least 2 hours, ideally overnight.

To pour the Choux Pastry dough into the molds, you can use a spoon, but I recommend the pastry bag which is more suitable

The Molds

You will need « Square Loaf Pan Mini-Cubes » that I purchased on the internet. Mine are 2.4 inch wide.
ProfiterolesPour the Choux Pastry Dough into the mold.
I filled it up only 1/3 full
Make sure your molds have a « top » or a « lid » like a real pullman loaf ! Otherwise your profiteroles will not be cubic

I cook with a pre-heated hot pizza stone :

You may fail the first time (hopefully not), just as I failed the first timeS.
Do NOT get discouraged ! It takes time to adjust the temperatures and the time

That would be your ideal result…

Let the profiterole cool down before we cut it

You want to cut the profiterole choux in 2 parts :
  • The Lid
  • The middle part that we will discard
  • The bottom

or in the microwave to go faster…
Dip the « lid »

      Wow! It looks great Francois. I saw the square Box shell filled with pastry cream just like pate chou and wondered how they made it. Thanks for beautiful pictures and clear instruction. Where did you get the molds?

      You should look on the internet (try eBay or Amazon) for products such as "square tin pullman mold", it usually ships from Japan or Hong Kong
