3 French Delicious Recipes that you can Try NOW!

Hi,

How are you today? What do you think about the series of articles and videos (Healthy Baking Lessons)? Are they useful to you?

Lately I've been trying various recipes, and one of them is a gluten-free, egg-free and lactose-free dough, caramelized apples with coconut sugar, and a pumpkin and 
cinnamon mousse. It came out great. With this I will participate in a contest, so wish me luck to be the winner.

Due to the fact that I've been trying a few French tart recipes lately, I've been thinking about French pastry. 

The French are famous for their delicacies and especially for their pastry. I think you can remember with pleasure the wonderful croissants you ate, the choux a la creme,
the macarons or that wonderful tart with cheese.

Whatever it is, they have that je ne sais quoi.

I love everything related to French pastry and bakery. It seems to me that their doughs have a special delicacy. Their pastry is hard to make, and you have to know how to 
make a perfect chocolate croissant or bread. Those layers, full of butter, are a delight for our taste every time.

Ever since I found out that I am allergic to wheat flour, it has been very difficult for me to refrain, especially how much I love this type of pastry. I adapted over time
and chose to enjoy tarts in particular. I adapted the crust recipe and made it completely gluten-free, lactose-free and egg-free. The result it's wonderful.

So today I want to mention some very simple, but incredibly delicious French recipes.

1. Choux dough

Ingredients
150 gr flour (gluten free flour can be used)
75 gr butter (lactose-free butter or vegan butter can be used)
150 ml milk (vegetable milk can be used)
7 gr sugar (or sugar substitute)
4 eggs
3 gr salt

Instructions

1. Cut the butter into pieces. Pour the milk into a bowl, add the sugar (substitute), salt and butter. Melt at high temperature. When the composition begins to boil, add 
all the flour, and mix vigorously with a wooden spoon. Stir at medium temperature until a ball forms and detaches from the edges of the vessel.

2. Remove the pan from the heat and allow to cool for 5 minutes.

3. Add the whole eggs, one at a time, and mix each time until each egg is well incorporated.

4. Preheat the oven.

5. Bake for 20-25 minutes depending on the recipe used. Do not open the oven while it is baking. If you want a softer choux, add a bowl of water to the oven.


2. Egg tart (Custard)

250 gr flour (gluten free flour can be used) 
125 gr butter (you can use lactose-free butter or vegan butter)

heavy. Bake for 15 minutes at 200 ° C. 

4. Heat the milk and sweet cream until the composition begins to boil. Beat the eggs with the sugar and vanilla essence until the composition turns white. Add the 
cornstarch or the potato starch and add the eggs with the vanilla and sugar in the milk composition over the heat. Mix well and bring to the boil. When it starts to boil, 
take it off the heat and put it in the baking dish. Bake for 30 minutes at 180 ° C until the cream is cooked and the crust is brown. 

5. Allow to cool overnight.

I hope you like the recipes and try them as soon as possible. I'm crazy about French cuisine. I especially love their pastry and these are some of my favorite recipes. 

If you want to replace the sugar, you can use coconut sugar or xylitol instead of white. Lactose-free butter or vegan butter can be used instead of butter, in case you 
have an intolerance or allergy to milk. Instead of sweet cream, you can use vegan cooking cream, rice or soy, for example. Almond milk, soy milk, rice milk, etc. can be 
used instead of cow's milk. And instead of flour you can use gluten-free flour.

For more recipes, you can consult the book in the picture above. It's extraordinary. 

What do you think about French cuisine in general? What about their pastry and confectionery? What have you tried so far? And just as importantly, what would you like to 
try? 

I am waiting for your answer and I wish you a wonderful day. 

Dearly, 
Raluca
