1st step to Pear Perfection??

So this wasnt planned... i had wanted to just chill today but instead ended up baking this soes jepang aka cream puff today.. why?? hehhe

Did u guys watch last nights' finale of the Junior Masterchef?? woweee .. i hv not missed a single episode of that program.. am very fascinated by the skill and the knowledge of these young lads that i cant help but to wonder if my little Sonia will ever be as knowledgeable as these kids when shes 9 heheh.. anyway am pretty sure if u watch it u will know that they had to prepare a dessert called Pear Perfection.. its actually choux pastry and when theirs came out perfect i was like... geesshh i dont recall getting the right texture and shape till i was after 35 hahahha..

Anyway.. I cud of cos try out the recipe that was given but i didnt hv any pear on hand plus where in the world can i find pectin NH and gellan?? kahkahkah.. so i started googling for an alternative and stumbled upon this site.. i took a look at the recipe.. and knew at that instance that my family wud love em and started preparing it right after i put Sonia to bed..

100g Butter - i used unsalted butter
130g water
110g Flour
3 Eggs
1/4tsp salt - i added

Topping Ingredients:
50g Butter
50g Icing sugar
50g Flour
1 tbsp Water

- Mix all topping ingredients - whisk until blended. Pour batter into a piping bag.

How to Make Skin:
- Boil butter and water over low heat.. once boiling take ur pan off fire and add sifted flour. Stir till u see like a skin of layer on ur pan.. off fire and place it in ur stand mixer.
- Whisk using med speed till slightly cool.. lower speed and add eggs one at a time.. whip till well combined.
- Pour batter into a piping bag.
- Pipe batter onto baking paper/ waxpaper / silpat - i used wilton tip 1M to pipe my batter
- Once done.. pipe topping onto ur piped choux.
- Bake on a preheated oven of 175C for 30 to 40 mins

250g Dark Cooking Chocolate - i used cocao barry
200g milk - i used fresh milk
250g Whip Cream - whip until fluffy -

- Boil milk and pour it onto DCC, mix well, chill.
- Add chocolate mixture into whipped Whip Cream and stir well.
- Pour into a piping bag - ready to be used for fillings

45 mins later.. i was munching on these beauties .. ty ty ty Pak Sahak Pribadi for the wonderful recipes.. its super delicious and yep this recipe is indeed a keeper!!

Oh .. I also baked a batch of congo bars for hb.. (its been two weeks since he last told me that his office cookie jar is empty!).. these blondies are a big hit whenever i bake em.. this recipe even came out in this month's Jelita magazine.. pheeweett ... got to love em ey..

Hb on the other hand has been busy helping me out with the shop.. there are now 46 items on there... I will probably add all the "consumables" like Valrhona chocolate, coffee oil etc after I get back from my overseas trip... and you guys are going to be in for a VERY big surprise in the store soon.. watch out! hehe


wow wee...semua sedap ni..5 hari xbuka blog kak rima..rasa rindu gila..hmm resepi congo bars mas lum jumpa lagi dlm ur blog cos lum abis lihat2 lagi..ke mana trip kali ni kak?

erm bestnya kalo nanti kak tambah consumables... sbbnya i suka sgt bake famous amos chunk cookies,,include this time, dah 3x i baked,of course bcos my hb request for it.so i can buy coffee oil fm ur shop..

I wanted to blog about the Jr MC finale too tapi mood merewang kesana kesini. I'll do it today insyaallah. The 1st n the last time I baked cream puff was when I was in my late teen. It was quite a disaster, hehe. Nanti you buat that Pear Perfection and make us drool, okay?
Mas said…

I loovveee Jr MC, but i miss last night, who's the winner? Compared to MC US, this kids is much more talented..
Rima said…
Dah 3 kali??!! akan ade ulang tayang lagi dan lagi dan lagi hehehe.. insyallah.. i rcvd lots of emails regarding baking stuff tu sebab my hb suggested i open up an online store.. if suruh bukak cafe ke.. bukak store ke.. akak kau lari cos nanti tak leh pergi jln jln hahahha

We are heading to Europe again :o)
Rima said…
Tell me abt it.. at 12yrs old i can still remember my mom baru ajar i masak nasi ayam.. mana ade chance nak do anything that got to do with baking.. sonia i will start young.. for now dia cuma boleh tolong tabur tabur.. more than that biar mak pikir dulu cos serak nye.. mintak ampun hahah

Pear perfection tu.. adeehhh nanti mak pi investigate ape kebenda gellan tu hahah
Rima said…
Ah ah.. macam tak percaya.. the young girl.. hmm siapa name dia.. only 9 yrs old and still shes in the last 4th position.. terer abis ..

Buat ah June.. the batter is pretty stable so dont worry abt it jatuh after u take it out of ur oven.. bila u ketuk ketuk ur choux..dalam kosong meaning menjadi lah choux u tu :o)
Rima said…
Harus ting tong dulu ok or else akak kau ni tak leh dengar bunyi ketukan mu heheh
Rima said…
Lahhh kesian nye.. i hope u are feeling much better after cuci mata kat my kedai runcit hahaha.. eh pi buat lah... sedap benda ni.. i wonder kat m'sia ade jual beard papa ni tak?? kat sg dah tak byk tempat jual ni.. dulu waktu hit u can find it everywhere..
Rima said…
Tunggu ok.. am trying to find out if they hv stock.. its a new item and yet dah tak de stock.. if ade i will definately bring it in..
Rima said…
Lepas malangak tengok the finale i was like.. geeeshh macam termotivate pulak tak pasal pasal nak bake itew pear perfection .. i thought to myself .. eh bagus betul budak budak ni.. choux dia tak kempes pulak tu after they took it out of the oven.. stable aje.. macam jeles pun ade cos they are so young and yet they got the right texture of choux.. I ni kalau masuk senior masterchef pun belum tentu can get that texture cos baking under pressure ni kan ade risky sikit hahaha
Rima said…
If blog walk waktu pagi ni nampak ape pun sedap hahaha.. nasib akak belum BW or else...
Rima said…
Ms V

Hi Rima,

Does your store sell the brownie cutter that you are using? If yes, I would like to purchase one unit.

Ms V
Rima said…
Salam Nina

azLina z. said…
I spent 1 whole day in front of my laptop watching Junior Masterchef. Hehehe. Anyway kak, I have a question. Can I use 8x8 @ 9x9 pan for the congo bars recipe ? Takut pulak nanti silap estimate tak jadi congo bars tu. ;D
nice picture you have been putting up but my outcome is never as nice as yours.

Rima said…
Black forest paste tu ku beli di jakarta buk hehhe.. my stock pun hampir habis.. we are trying to talk to the indon office if they can help us to bring it in.. if not terpaksa lah i hv to wait till i go to Jkt again..
Rima said…
ty for ur suggestion... will keep that in mind.. tks!
Rima said…
Hehhe pagi pagi ni macam terasa nak makan lontong pulak hahah
Rima said…
Alamak kadang tu bila vitamin M tu melanda memang susah nak try to persuade badan kita nak bake something..

Next time i bake it .. KUmmi ketuk ok.. nanti Rima bukak pintu hehe
Rima said…
if u use 8x8 nanti bars nye jadi tebal pulak.. i used laminton pan.. hmm lupa pulak size nye.. u are better off using 10 x 10 i guess.. or if u dont hv try using 9x9
Rima said…
I am pretty sure the taste is just as delish.. :o)
morning kak..mlm td x bake ke? same with me..ptg semalam ikut hb main vollevball outside, then pegi pasar mlm..pas mkn & mandi..huh..penat seh.. cancel mau bikin donut..this evening maybe..LOL

hmm..macamana rupa brownie cutter erk? LOL

Halo Rima,

Just wondering with Mas Mummy Nuqman, what does a brownie cutter looks like. If you get a chance to show it to us, will be much appreciated.

Aishamirafiq said…
Hi Rima
Already tried your Congo Bars... Sedap gila... Thanks for the delicious recipe
RIma, alamak... ni kena try. Wondering asal-usul nama Congo ... macamana boleh jadi nama congo bar ya? Mesti cuba eh? heheh akan try. Tapi yg bahaya try -try ni, nanti terus melekat nak buat selalu...psssttt just bake the SOC (again!) Apa boleh buat sebab memang sedap kan?
haha omg u know what? I want to make the Pear Perfection too but I haven't found pectin as well. I'm probably going to sub it with something else. Have lotsa pears at home !!
