This is a double chocolate eclair recipe from a blog called Baking Love, here's the link to the post about the eclairs in full, it's longer than just the recipe below.

Double Chocolate Eclairs

Pate a Choux

207 ml (7 ounces) water

1/2 teaspoon salt

78g (5 1/2 tablespoons) butter or shortening or 125 ml (1/2 cup) oil

140g (1 1/4 cups) gluten-free flour blend (xanthan gum is not necessary)

5 extra large eggs

7g (1 tablespoon) cocoa powder (I used 15g (2 tablespoons))

Boil water, salt, cocoa, and butter in a saucepan. Add flour and stir, stirring constantly until the mixture gets hot and uniform in consistency. Transfer mixture to an electric mixer with a paddle attachment and mix on low speed for 2-3 minutes until mixture is cool.

Mix on low and add the eggs, one at a time. After the addition of each egg, wait until the mixture absorbs it and becomes completely smooth again. Using a pastry bag, dispense the choux paste onto a parchment-lined or nonstick baking tray. Alternatively, you may use two spoons to form eclair shapes or simply drop spoonfuls to form puffs.

Bake at 220C (425F) until they have puffed and gotten some colour, then reduce the heat to 170C (350F) until they dry out inside. Do not underbake or they will fall flat. Cut one open to check the inside for wetness, before removing from the oven, if you are not sure if they are done. It takes longer than you would think. Mine took 15 minutes to puff up and 20 minutes to dry out. Watch them carefully. I got 12 eclairs. Peabody says the recipe makes 25 to 30 small puffs or 8 to 10 large eclairs.

There are 3 recipes. Eclairs are pastry, filling and topping. Kind of like a Longjohn for us Midwest girls!

Yes, the first one is the pastry, the second one is an eggfree version of the pastry, and the third one is for the cream that goes inside. I'm just going to make vanilla pudding, I'm too lazy for that!

    • Cyclinglady is absolutely correct, after hours of internet research the only gluten-free food available at JNB is a fast food chain called 'Nandos'. I was hoping for a bit more variety, but I'll take what I get.   
    • I'm so confused about my daughter's diagnosis.  I hope somebody can help.   My 4 year old daughter has a swollen belly, stomachaches, and lots of gas.  She does not have diarrhea or delayed growth.  Because of her symptoms and because it runs in the family (2nd degree relatives) I had her tested for celiac.   She was weak positive for TTG (IGA)  and strong positive for DGP (IGG)   TTG (IGA)  8   (0-3 neg, 4-10 weak positive, greater than 10 positive) TTG (IGG)  2   EMA: Negative DGP (IGG)  47  (0-19 negative, 20-30 weak positive, greater than 30 positive) Last week, she had her endoscopy.  The doctor found inflammation and little holes or bumps on her duodenum.  He started her on prevacid and said based on his observations, he was suspicious of celiac, but he would not be able to confirm until the biopsy came back. The biopsy showed no signs of celiac disease.  He said that he could not diagnose her with celiac without the biopsy report saying there was celiac damage.  He said he would categorize her as a potential celiac, keep her on a gluten diet and redo the endoscopy in a year or two to check for damage again.  My questions are: 1.)  If it is not celiac, something is causing her duodenum to be inflamed and have little holes or bumps on it, right?  Could it be a wheat allergy or gluten sensitivity?  What else could it be and how do they test for it?  Given her elevated celiac antibodies, how likely is it to be anything besides celiac causing the damage?  2.)  How likely are false positives for TTG and DGP?  I've heard they are pretty sensitive and specific.  Does getting two positives make false positives less likely? 3.) What have you done in this situation?  I want her to have an official diagnosis to make things easier at school and to feel confident that we are eliminating gluten permanently for a worthy reason, etc.  But, I'm having a hard time imagining keeping her on gluten and waiting for her to get more sick and have more intestinal damage just for a diagnosis.     Thanks in advance for your help.  I'm so overwhelmed and confused.  I hope someone has some insight and experience that will help clear things up for me.            
    • Yeah I actually live in Japan which is pretty similar, because Coeliac disease is rare over here so is the understanding and accommodating it. When I mention Gluten to some restaurants they think I am talking in English and they are unfamiliar with the word in Japanese.    So it seems I can write off my chances of getting some authentic Chinese gluten-free food at the airport, but at least there is a Thai restaurant in T3 so I won't starve. Its called  'Phrik Thai' for future reference. http://en-shopping.bcia.com.cn/store/739.html  
    • While in Boston I found Cheer's  Bloody Mary mix that says gluten-free on the bottle and have had no issues and  tastes pretty good 
    • I always assumed plain coffee was, but I have seen some controversy online about this. I know someone who is gluten free and only buys whole beans and grinds them herself because she doesn't trust how the grounds are processed.
