    • Corn starch 45 g

    • Sugar 400 g

    • Water 350 g
    • Salt 5 g
    • Milk powder 0% 15 g
    • Butter 150 g
    • Pastry flour 180 g
    • Eggs 325 g

    Bring the water, salt, dry milk and butter to a boil.
    At the same time, sift the flour into the hot mixture and turn up the heat so that all the liquid evaporates.
    Take off the heat and progressively add the eggs so that a good consistency forms. Immediately shape the dough into choux buns of your preferred size.
    If you are using a convection oven, heat to 480°F (250°C), put the choux in, then turn off the oven and keep the door closed.
    As soon as the choux pastry has blown up and started to change color, heat the oven back up to 355°F (180°C) and open the door.
    Allow the choux pastry to slowly cook.


    Beat together the chilled cream, split and scraped vanilla and sugar.
    Store in the refrigerator.


    Spread the puff pastry into a 40 × 60cm tray.
    Leave to rest overnight.
    Bake in convection oven at 320°F (160°C). Halfway through the baking process, turn the tray around and place another tray on top.
    Leave the pastry to continue baking until it has a golden color all the way through. Set aside.
    Smooth the pastry cream, then use it to fill the choux buns.
    Cook the blond caramel and glaze the choux buns. While still in its tray, cut the puff pastry into six 11 × 25cm strips.
    Use a small amount of caramel to stick a row of choux buns along each strip’s side.
    Use a piping bag with a slanted nozzle to pipe the whipped cream into the center.
    Decorate with a few thin slices of de-seeded vanilla bean and a drizzle of caramel.
