Do you like éclairs? Do you like strawberries? And basil? If you do then you will really enjoy this post about Strawberry Basil Éclairs. We found the recipe on Chasing Delicious; just look at the photo and you will be drooling over for days!
Chasing Delicious is a great website for recipes and we enjoy reading their articles: always humourous and cooking seems so easy… But it is not. We tried several times and nobody here could even make a cake. But at least we tried.
Here is an excerpt from the Strawberry Basil Éclairs recipe:
I am done with the classic éclair. I am done with people hoarding them in the pink boxes they get from some overly trendy bakery. I am done… wait a second. What is this? I don’t have to go with the weird chocolate top? I can add other stuff to the inside too? These are the thoughts that run through my mind as I flip through the lovely pages of Martha Stewart’s website. In between my daydreams of one day building an empire as big as the queen of crafts herself, I stumble on a recipe for a strawberry and mint variation of the éclair. I am intrigued to say the least. I happen to also have another twenty tabs open with various other strawberry recipes, but I become so enthralled with the idea of a new–to me at least–éclair that I closed them all…
This is not the recipe but the entire post is worth reading. Only frustration: the Strawberry Basil Éclairs are not delivered at the end of the post, you will have to make them all by yourselves. Good luck! 😉
