hi guys ! just got through my first week of university life , also known as Freshers' Week . That being said , I've also caught the "Freshers' flu". Actually, not much of a flu , just a really bad sore throat and cough . But other than that , everything has been going pretty well for me . There were some bumps along the way of course , such as setting up my bank account and trying to figure out the school printer , but I think things are finally beginning to fall into place . My mom left for Malaysia today after I had my first lecture and for the first time since I arrived here , I feel alone . Undoubtedly I'm very clingy to my mother so not having her around is definitely something I need to get used to ..
Anyway , back in KTJ , my friends have always been saying they want to visit my house . So one fine day during our summer holidays it finally happened !! Decided to bake some cream puffs since I wanted to try something new hehe . Here's the recipe : http://gooddinnermom.com/aunt-pats-famous-cream-puff-recipe/
I did add one or two more eggs than the recipe stated because it didn't look like the right texture to me , but I guess it all depends on the size of the eggs you're using ; it should vary .
babies puffing up in the oven ! I was super nervous as it was my first time handling choux pastry ..
very very glad at how the puffs turned out ! not to mention they smelled absolutely delicious too .
filled them with strawberries and cream the next day ! didn't screw up the choux as seen above , but i did overwhip my first batch of whipped cream and had to throw it all away :-) fml . why is whipped cream so expensive in Malaysia . my mom had to buy me another litre of whipping cream AND I FELT SO BAD .
but in the end all is well ! honestly one of the best things i've baked .. i usually don't like eating my baked goods because by the time i'm done baking i'm always so worn out that i lose my appetite . but these were really addictive and I couldn't stop eating them !!
last one with my friends ! we were supposed to have a pool party but none of us felt like swimming in the end HAHAHHA . so it turned out to be a chill-by-the-pool-and-eat-pizza party . nonetheless we had a really good time catching up and talking about future plans ! SO SO GRATEFUL for this bunch xx
