Step-by-step process of making choux pastry, I quoted here: http://www.povarenok .ru/recipes/show/629 21/. Anyone is interested take a look, and then I "swerve" in 1 step. Water with a pinch of salt bring to a boil. Add the butter (100 gr), to melt. Add the flour and mix well until the dough is "brew". The dough cool down a bit and drive it for one 5 eggs, each involving carefully into the dough.
Cut out parchment two circles, "Spread" test, a layer of about 1-1,5 cm Bake at 180 degrees 20-25 minutes.
Bake until the eclairs, I made cottage cheese. I took the finished cottage cheese with vanilla. Added pre-washed with soap and water a chicken egg and softened butter (200 grams). At first everything is mixed logikoi, and then "walked" blender.
Everything is prepared in the absence of her husband. Procurement for the cake was carefully hidden. When her husband returned from work, I covered him in the hall a solid dinner with first, second and tea with cookies, and she rushed back to the kitchen on the sly "collect" cake.
Put one cake layer on a plate.
Spread with cream and put cherries. I had frozen that I previously pulled from moosilauke. By the time the "Assembly" cake she had just frozen.
Cut each Eclair in half, fill each half with cream.
Spread on cake cream down.
Gloss over all the cream.
Again prepare the two halves of eclairs with cream, but now spread cake cream up.
Put in halves of the eclairs cherries.
Coat the remaining cake layer with remaining frosting.
And cover the cake. The next cake I covered a large saucepan and sent to the refrigerator. On top I put the pan with the meatballs, so beloved was too lazy to see what is there is under the pan.
And the night before I prepared a "blank" for the custard. The milk put to boil. At this time, whisk the egg with 50 gr. of sugar and 1 tablespoon flour. When the milk boils, pour it in the egg mixture and, stirring constantly, cook until thick.
Lumps I could not be avoided : (, so I used a blender. The workpiece for the custard I was cool and hid until the morning in the fridge.
Early in the morning added the cream the softened butter (100 g).
Of course, it on this cream too, and go blender, but at 4:30 in the morning it was somehow inappropriate. Daubed it with cream cake, carefully aligning the sides. Leave a little cream for decoration.
Well, to decorate a masterpiece I do not know. Really sorry. There is already one can fantasize in their own way, applying their own skills and adaptations. For decoration, I crumbled in a mortar two lemon bars.
Sprinkled with crumbs side. Very beautiful yellow crumb against a white cream. The top of the cake I use a coffee sieve sprinkle cocoa powder.
Pastry syringe or bag I have. So constructed that such odnorazovoe "design" baking "fixed" tape. Do not judge strictly. Necessity is the mother of invention. Of course the side of the cake came out not superlatively, but as our first Ukrainian President Leonid Kravchuk, "What we have, maєmo those!" (I have what I have)
Makeshift pastry bag I made a side and squeezed out droplets of cream. In every drop put almond plate.
The cake for an hour went to the refrigerator. So what a surprise the Breakfast was a success!
So cake looks in the context of
