Strawberry Powder Puffs
Adapted from The Australian Women's Weekly Sweets
- Strawberry Powder Puffs
- 2 eggs
- 1/3 cup caster sugar
- 2 Tablespoons corn flour
- 2 Tablespoons plain flour
- 2 Tablespoons self-raising flour
- Strawberry Cream
- 1/2 cup thickened cream (35% fat)
- 1 Tablespoon icing sugar, plus extra for dusting
- 1/2 cup finely chopped strawberries, plus extra for garnish
For powder puffs:
Preheat oven to 180C (or 160C fan forced). Grease and flour two 12-hole shallow round-based patty pans. Beat eggs and sugar in a small bowl with electric mixer for about 4 min., or until mixture is thick and pale. Triple-sift flours, and fold into egg mixture. Place mixture in a piping bag and fill holes to about 2/3 full (or you can spoon the mixture into the holes). Bake about 10 min., turn immediately to cool. Wash, grease and flour pans again and repeat with the remaining mixture.
For strawberry cream:
Beat cream and the sifted icing sugar until it forms firm peaks. Fold in strawberries.
Sandwich puffs with strawberry cream just prior to serving. Dust with sifted icing sugar.
