Pate a Choux Riche
(for Pommes Dauphine)
Serving Size: 1
- 1 cup water—8 oz by weight
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1/2 cup butter—4 oz by weight
- 1 cup flour bread—4 oz by weight
- 4 each eggs large—8 oz by weight, total.
- Bring the water, salt and butter to a boil.
- As soon as it boils, dump in the flour and stir hard, using a wooden spoon, until it is a uniform mass.
- Remove from the fire, adding one egg at a time until it is completely absorbed. If it is to be held any amount of time, cover with oiled paper or saran. Total weight of the mix = 24 oz, enough for 4 lbs of Pomme Duchess.
Notes: This is a rich variant for the kitchen, as it browns too well for the bakeshop
