Recipe's preparation

    To make the Eclairs
  1. Preheat oven at 210C.

    Put butter, water, salt and pepper into the Thermomix bowl and cook 5 min, 100C Speed 1.

    Add Flour and mix 1 min Speed 3.

    Allow the dough to cool down by resting it for a few minutes with the lid open.

    At speed 5, drop the eggs through the lid hole, one at the time every 15 seconds. Mix for a further 30 seconds once the last egg has been dropped in. add in the grated gruyere cheese (if used) and mix through a few more seconds.


  2. Spoon the choux pastry mixture into a piping bag with a large star nozzle. On one or two baking trays lined with silicon paper, pipe the Eclair in 5cm long straight lines, allowing enough space between for them to double in size without touching.


    Sprinkle sesame seeds to garnish each Eclair and bake for about 20 minutes until golden brown and slightly crispy.


  3. Allow to cool completely before filling.

  4. For the Salmon cream filling
  5. In a clean and dry bowl, place the dill and capers. Chop for 5 seconds at speed 7. Scrape the sides of the bowl and repeat if necessary.
