Tips & variations
For the eclairs to be truly delicious, you need to use good quality butter for the cream. About an hour before cooking, the product is taken out of the fridge.
You can fill the cakes with cream either by cutting them or by squeezing the filling inside with a culinary syringe.
For butter cream, cream is suitable exclusively with a high fat content: from 28 to 35%.
In almost any cream, you can add some natural seasonal berries, such as strawberries or raspberries.
