  • Flour 1 cup
  • Milk 100 ml
  • Water 100 ml
  • Sugar 2 tsp
  • Salt 1/2 tsp
  • Unsalted butter 5 1/2 tbsp
  • Eggs 4
  • Vanilla essence 1 tsp
  • Almonds flaked few
  • Egg 1 to brush
  • Pastry crème Filling:
  • Milk 2 cups
  • Egg yolks 4
  • Sugar 1/3 cup
  • Salt a pinch
  • Flour 2 tbsp
  • Corn flour 1/4 cup
  • Vanilla essence 1 tsp
  • Unsalted butter 1 tbsp
  • Chocolate spread 7 oz
  • Butter 2/3 cup
  • Whipped cream 3-5 tbsp

To Topping:

  • Icing sugar as required

Firstly, for the choux paste, boil the water along with butter, salt and sugar. To it, add the flour all at once and cook for some time. Then take it off the stove. One at a time, add eggs to the flour mixture, accompanied by vanilla essence and mix thoroughly. Now taking a piping bag, fill it with the mixture and start piping into the shape of a crown on a baking tray. Brush with egg and put some almond flakes on the choux paste. Preheat your oven to 220 degrees C and allow the choux paste to bake for about 25 to 30 minutes. Prick a hole in it so the steam escapes. Set it aside to cool completely.
To prepare the Pastry Cream, boil milk, sugar, salt along with corn flour, egg yolks, and vanilla essence. Keep on stirring with a whisk until the mixture thickens. After the mixture thickens, turn off the heat and add butter to it while it is kept to cool. After the mixture cools down completely, add chocolate paste and whipped cream to it.
Now, using a serrated knife, cut across the Paris Brest. Now pipe the mixture on the lower half of the Paris Brest and place the upper part of the Paris Brest on the top the cream. Serve with icing sugar dusted on top.
