It was the hottest day of the year yesterday, which meant it time to bust out the popsicle molds!
I made some refreshing elderflower, strawberry and blueberry popsicles. Juicy red summer strawberries and plump blueberries couldn’t be a better accompaniment to a delicately floral, slightly tart yet sweet elderflower juice.
The other day my boyfriend and I were at our local supermarket and he picked up a little box of profiteroles to put in the basket. I thought, why don’t I try making them for us instead?! When I told him he gave me the, er, I don’t think that’s such a good idea face. But what’s the worse that could happen, I thought? If it doesn’t work I’ll just come back and buy some soggy store bought profiteroles.
I always assumed that profiteroles were really hard to make. I’m not completely sure why, since I originally had no idea how to make them. I just assumed that something so delicate and delicious must be hard to make. But I thought I’d challenge myself anyway and try to make something new. Turns out, they were really easy to make and a complete hit with everyone!
