Big eclair cake

Do you like eclairs? I adore them! That's why my today's post will be dedicated to this delicious dessert!

The recipe:
100ml. milk
100ml. water
140gr. flour
1/2 tsp. salt
4 eggs
80gr. butter - room temperature

150gr. sugar
600ml. milk
60gr. corn starch
2 eggs
130 ml. whipping cream
150gr. butter
3 tbsp. icing sugar

Some instructions how to prepare the two layers:
Pour the water, milk, butter and salt in a small saucepan and heat it. When the mix starts boiling pour all of the flour. Continue mixing until a blend like a ball is formed. Turn off the heat, remove the saucepan from the pot and leave it to cool off. Then add the eggs one by one until you get a homogeneous mix.

Pour half of this mix in a 9" pan and bake it at 200 degrees Celsius for approximately 25 min.  Put a baking paper in the pan before you pour the mix. Bake the other half of the batter in the same way.

Meanwhile, you can prepare the cream.
Boil 500ml.milk. The other 100ml. of the milk add to the mix of the eggs, sugar, corn starch and vanilla. Then gradually add the boiling milk. Put the mix again in a pan and bring it to boil. Continue mixing until it's getting thick. Remove from the hot pot and cool it.
In another pan mix the butter (room temperature) with the icing sugar. Then add it to the cooled cream. Beat it with a mixer at low speed. 

The last step is to beat the whipping cream and to add it to the cream. Use a cake ring for this cake.

Put the first layer, attach it by a ring, pour the whole amount of the cream and add the second layer. Keep the cake in the fridge at least 3 hours.

On the top you can decorated as you want. Even you can leave it like that - simply delicious. I added some chocolate ganache and icing sugar.

Have fun and enjoy it!
