A custard-filled éclair, much like a profiterole, is made of choux pastry. Once it has been cooled, delicious custard is piped in and the top of the mouth-watering dessert is then smothered with chocolate and chilled. And just like that, an éclair has been crafted! The French word ‘éclair’ translates as ‘flash of lightening’ in English. And in a flash, we aim to shorten your hunt for some delectable éclairs in a flash.
