The war rages on, and I am left with a rather phallic collection of eclairs that are most definitely not PG.
This time I tried playing around with the eggs and flour content - which is quite visible because the eclair ridges have disappeared. The egg quantity is definitely quite tricky. Different videos show different batter consistencies, and I'm not sure which one is the right one.
I also tried going for a faster, and a thinner pipe. You can see it didn't work out, because the eclairs got that boney structure (thick ends and thin middle), and were not wide enough to rise.
Overall, less successful than yesterday's attempt - but I'm learning.
Things to continue next time:

Kitchen Wars is an account of my ongoing battle against recipes and techniques that refuse to work. Sometimes it takes a while, but at the end -
I always win 😉
Enjoy this record of split buttercreams, wasted eggs, and record setting sugar usage.
