Sweet Chouquette & Cheese Gougere

My father was having an aperitif with his friends at the aerodrome and so I decided to try making some Cheese Gougere, and thought it would be a good idea to try the sweet equivalent for afternoon tea.

I might repeat myself during those recipes. Deal with it.

Ingredients for Cheese Gougere: 

  • 75 g grated cheese
  • 75 g butter
  • 150 g flour
  •  25 ml water
  • 4 eggs
  • Salt and 1 tea spoon of Cumin

Mix in your pan the butter, the water the salt and the cumin and leave it till it starts boiling.

Remove from hob and add all the flour in one go, and stir.

stir the mix

Put back on the hob for a few minutes, whilst stirring energetically.

Remove from hob and add your 4 eggs One by one!

1 egg

Stir in between each eggs then add your grated cheese.

mix

Pre-heat your oven at 210°.

Use a piping bag should you have one to lay little “droppings” down on your wax paper. I tried with plastic piping bag and it exploded almost immediatly, probably because I am so strong like a mummy (or clumsy…like a mummy…)

If you don’t have your piping bag (or ruined yours), use two spoons, and make sure that all your little dropping are as even as possible. Otherwise, they won’t all cook the same way and you’ll get burn gougere.

Leave it to cook for about 14 to 16 minutes and then control yourself for not eating them all before they get a little cooler!

One big rule : Never EVER open the oven when making Chouquettes or Gougeres to check if it is cooked, it will drop flat and will never go back to its cool inflated self.


Ingredients for Sweet Chouquettes:

  • 250ml of Water
  • 100g of Butter
  • 5 Eggs
  • 150g of Flour
  • 20g of Sugar
  • Granulated sugar
  • Some salt

Same process, Mix in your pan the butter, the water the salt and the 20g of sugar and leave it till it starts boiling.

Remove from hob and add all the flour in one go, and stir. Then add your eggs one by one, and stir in between.

You piping bag’s champion can show off now, the others, use the two spoons technique.drop it like it's hot

Add your granulated sugar on top of each “droppings”.

I did not have granulated sugar but I had the sugar that crackle in your mouth (Just like the Frizzy Pazzy, remember?It was fun to put it on top of each chouquette for the crackle sound it made, but once the chouquette were out of the oven, you could not see the sugar anymore, so I would not recommend it.

If you look closely, you can see that this has been approved by a bee (and that the plates are not full as some did not even made it to the picture).
