Gluten-Free Choux Paste

July 13, 2016
Serves 450 g / 1 quantity
Equipment
Stand mixer fitted with dough attachment OR
a mixing bowl if using an electric hand whisk
Piping bag and a large plain nozzle

As provided in the book River Cottage Gluten Free by Naomi Devlin, this gluten-free choux pastry enables me to create her chocolate eclair recipe, something that I am very thankful for. Below are some hints from Naomi on how to tell if choux buns are properly cooked.

A simple white gluten free flour mix gives good results here. If you have some sweet rice flour, try using this as part of the flour mix – the high amylopectin content makes for the biggest puff. When you bake choux buns, make sure they are dry inside, as they may seem cooked and firm, yet still be full of doughy strands. If you squeeze a cooked bun and there is any squidge, put them back into a low oven to dry out. If in doubt, choose a sacrificial bun and check.

A popular recipe by Naomi Devlin from “River Cottage Gluten Free” is the Gluten Free chocolate eclairs. Something that I have missed since going gluten free are chocolate eclairs. The choux pastry is just divine. Please view this recipe to make your own. I had given up hope of enjoying them again without the after-effects of gluten. Please enjoy the following recipe by Naomi Devlin.

In Matt Moran’s cookbook ‘Dinner at Matt’s he features a number of seafood recipes, which I love. This is my favourite and I hope you will like it too.

“This dish, with its strong Asian influence, is a big hit at dinner parties – just make sure you have plenty of table napkins and bowls of water ready as your guests dig in, bare hands and all. In Australia, this is best served between January and March, when Blue Swimmer crabs are at their peak.” Matt Moran
