Lemon Blueberry Puffs

My Mum collects recipes and I've been doing the same since I was quite small. The trouble with having an uncatalogued recipe box is you don't quite know what's in there. Just before Christmas I went through the box and unearthed a few recipes I thought it was time to try.

I used to make choux pastry all the time but haven't in ages. Choux pastry is quite simple to make - you just have to follow the instructions to the letter. I also split the puffs or eclairs in half and scrape out all the uncooked mixture before returning them to the oven to dry out.

I unearthed a recipe for lemon blueberry puffs and thought it was time to start making it again. It also gave me an excuse to make some more lemon curd and you all know how much I like lemon curd. The puffs are just profiteroles filled with lemon curd and although I tried to track down a recipe for you, I couldn't find one that replicated the one I used. If you want to try making them at home, I used a 2 egg choux pastry recipe and a 3 egg lemon curd recipe.

Some food combinations are a natural and lemon works really well with blueberries.

The recipe made 16 puffs and I kept the ones you see on the blog for myself and took the rest into work. I made some that were filled with both lemon curd and whipped cream but preferred the lemon curd. I treated myself to one each night when I came home from work. Last week was such a rough week.

Lots of my work colleagues are still on holidays, so I thought it might take some time for the blueberry puffs to be consumed. They were all gone by day's end, which means they were given a big tick of approval. They can be a tough crowd at times, my workmates.

Although last week was a challenging and worrying one, I've decided it's time to get back to my normal routine, so I've been to the gym and here I am back blogging. My latest purchase from the Book Depository has just arrived, The Hare with Amber Eyes, so I have a new book to read as well. 

See you all again on Wednesday,
