Les Chouquettes

les chouquettesHow is it possible I’ve never tried chouquettes before? They can be bought in almost any boulangerie/pâtisserie and not until two weeks ago I asked to have a few when I was buying my viennoise au chocolat (read breakfast). These cute cloud looking puffs with sprinkled with crunchy sugar are just not only addictive..but also the perfect goûter in the afternoon. The cream puffs are very easy to make and it’s such a shame I have no oven in my apartment (that was supposed to have a fully equipped kitchen..but what is a kitchen without an oven??). My boulangerie that I buy my chouquettes from sometimes make them in extra large sizes, like you can see in my photos, those times makes me extra happy :-)
Ever since I had my first chouquette I buy a few everyday to have for breakfast and as le goûter (afternoon snack). Luckily they are not THAT unhealthy since they consists of eggs (great protein source!), flour, some salt, butter, milk, water and some sugar.les chouquettes
