Eggless Choux with Eggless Chocolate Mousse - 5years of Blogging

Cant believe,i have been blogging for a long yes today is 5years of blogging.. Happy birthday to my blog baby,am very much proud of my space and this virtual baby brought me so many beautiful moments in my life.My space earned me many awards,many appreciations,many friends, many gifts and more. I dont have words to say how i love my space and i cant sit idle without feeding my blog baby. This virtual world teached me so many lessons,i stopped running behind eggs, started experimenting with organic grains, finally i have became an Healthnut and am proud to be.

For the celebration, am sharing today an eggless choux, a famous french pastry and a delicious eggless gelatin free chocolate mousse. Choux is a french pastry which goes for egg and for me without egg i cant imagine making this cute chouxs, but trust me Baking Eggless, owned by Gayathri  taught me how to make choux without eggs, seriously am loving this baking group and we are learning the alternatives and subsitutes of eggs. As i told earlier, now am not running behind eggs,yep i learned how to make both eggless and vegan bakes through this immense virtual world. Coming to this choux, this choux are easily available here in bakeries and its one of our family favourite.

Usually choux are filled with whipped cream while eclairs the elder sister of this choux is filled with various filling, they are oblong shaped pastries and my favourite eclair is coffee flavoured one. For the first time in my life i tried making this famous french pastry choux without eggs and replaced the eggs with flax seed powder and baking powder. Actually i have to serve the choux filled with the mousse but since i went for small choux, i served the mousse along instead of filling the choux. However we loved it thoroughly and i baked these eggless choux twice.

Eggless chocolate mousse goes for an no gelatin mousse, its a quick and very addictive eggless mousse to enjoy thoroughly with any pastry, it will be very light,airy and very chocolatey.Thanks to Shey of Just Not the Cakes for pulling us to make this fantastic challenge.

Eggless Choux:
1cup All purpose flour
1tsp Baking powder
100grms Butter
2cups Milk
1/4tsp Salt
4tsp Sugar
2tbsp Flax seed powder
6tbsp Warm water
Some sugar pearls

Sieve the baking powder, flour together, add in the sugar and salt.

Now add the flax seed powder to the warm water, mix it and keep aside.

Heat the milk, butter in a heavy bottom pan and bring it to boil.

Reduce the flame and add slowly the flour mixture, stir until the flour gets cooked and looks like a dough.

Now add the flax seed mixture, and mix vigorously.

Preheat the oven to 350F.

Transfer this a pastry bag, line a baking tray with a baking sheet.

Pipe it as round balls , give a milk wash and sprinkle the sugar pearls on the top.

Bake for 10-12 minutes at 350F.

Eggless chocolate mousse:
2cups Heavy cream
1cup Semi sweet chocolate chips
4tbsp Butter

In a chilled bowl, beat the heavy cream until they turns smooth and stiff, keep it in fridge.

Meanwhile take the chocolate chips and butter in a bowl.

Put this bowl on the top of the simmering water sauce pan, make sure the water should not touch the bottom of the chocolate bowl.

Melt the chocolate completely, stir continously and remove it,let it cool for few seconds.

Now gently drop the whipped cream and slowly fold it.

Dont deflate the whipped cream, take care of it.

Divide the mouse to an individual serving glass and keep it in fridge for an hour or 2hours to set.

Serve with eggless choux, either filled or as accompaniment.
