Craquelin choux buns willed with a prosecco cream and a peach puree. To make gluten free, use the choux recipe from profiterole tower recipe.

For the craquelin:

•    50g unsalted butter – softened
•    50g caster sugar
•    50g plain flour

For the choux pastry:

•    65g unsalted butter
•    160g water
•    85g plain flour
•    Pinch salt
•    2 large eggs

For the peach filling:
•    2 large peaches
•    50g caster sugar

For the prosecco cream:
•    200ml double cream
•    200ml mascarpone
•    50g icing sugar
•    50ml prosecco


Make the craquelin:

Step 1: Mix all ingredients in a small bowl

Step 2: Tip onto a sheet of greaseproof paper, cover with a second sheet and roll out to 2mm thick

Step 3: Leave to chill (flat) in the freezer


Make the choux pastry:

Step 1: Pre-heat the oven to 200 degrees C fan

Step 2: Add the butter and water to a saucepan and heat until boils, then beat in the flour

Step 3: Return to heat stirring for a few minutes until thickened into a firmer ball

Step 4: Leave for 3 minutes before gradually beating in the egg

Step 5: Stop when a peak of dough folds over when pinched (pinch test)

Step 6: Transfer to piping bag

Step 7: Pipe 8 large circles on to a sheet of greaseproof paper (on a baking sheet), cut circles of craquelin (just bigger than the circles of choux) and place on top of each bun

Step 8: Bake at 200 for 10 minutes then turn down to 170 for 10 minutes (remove the mini buns at this stage)

Step 9: Remove from the oven, stab bottoms with a skewer and return to oven for 7 minutes

Step 10: Cool on rack


Make the peach puree:

Step 1: Add the chopped peaches and to a blender and blend until smooth, if you do not have a blender, just chop the peaches and mash them after heating

Step 2: Transfer to a saucepan and bring to a simmer, keep stirring and let simmer for a few minutes

Step 3: Set aside to cool completely – this is a thin sauce to ripple through the cream

Step 4: Keep the spare to make Bellini cocktails with the rest of the prosecco bottle!


Make the prosecco cream:

Step 1: Whisk the cream to soft peaks

Step 2: Add the mascarpone and sugar and whisk again

Step 3: Beat in the prosecco

Step 4: Cut the buns in half and fill with cream and puree
