Method

    1. Place the Macphie Choutex in a machine bowl and add all the cold water and beat on slow speed for 2 minutes. Scrape down.
    2. Beat for a further 7 minutes on middle speed, until a smooth paste is obtained.
    3. Pipe the batter into long éclair shapes, approximately 6 inches long. Ensure baking tray is lightly greased.
    4. Bake at 195-215ºC (385-420ºF) for approximately 30-40 minutes.
    5. Pull out the damper towards the end of bake to evacuate all steam.
    6. Meanwhile, prepare the coffee cream using Mactop® Traditional and coffee flavouring.
    7. Once cooled, slice the éclairs in half and using a star nozzle, pipe the cream and sandwich.
    8. Finish with Macphie 5th Avenue® Coffee Icing and a roasted coffee bean.
