Today I am going to reintroduce an old recipe anew: choux pastry in the form of hearts with a raspberry filling. This is an airy and light dessert. Don’t be intimidated by choux pastry. I have discovered a new recipe which never fails me. Below I piped the choux pastry to hearts, but you are free to also make traditional profiteroles or eclairs if you wish. The raspberry filling is not too sweet, more on the tart side and very fruity. I reduced the amount of butter and cream cheese in order to make is really taste like raspberries.
My husband asked for a raspberry sponge roll for his birthday. Since I love sponge rolls, his wish was my command. Simple as that. I honestly have no idea why sponge rolls seem to be very much out of fashion. They are super quick to make and usually are gone with in seconds. Everybody seems to enjoy them. However, for some reason nobody makes them. Go figure. If you look for sponge rolls on my blog, you will find plenty.
