Profiteroles with Lemon Cream Filling

Profiteroles/cream puffs are the perfect finger food for any parties or any functions as they are simple to make, use simple ingredients (doesn’t require anything fancy) but taste amazingly delicious. I love making these crowd-pleaser dessert whenever I have pot luck or gathering with my friends. The addition of lemon zest into the cream mixture exudes nice zingy lemon aromas that fill your mouth. It is crucial to cook the cream filling mixture until the right consistency is achieved. You can test the mixture consistency by lifting up the whisk over the bowl and the cream should flow down in a continuous ribbon fashion. Mixture that is too runny will make the puffs soggy and if it’s too thick, it’s difficult to pipe into the puffs and. it is also important to take note of the heat when cooking your cream mixture. To obtain silky smooth cream and to avoid curdle, always cook the pastry cream over low heat and stir constantly.

Lemon Yogurt Cupcake With Cream Cheese Frosting

Mr. D and I love lemony desserts. One day I was searching for new recipes to try and came across lemon yogurt cake. We haven’t eaten yogurt cake before. So, I decided to try baking it and put a cupcake spin to it. I must say it tasted divine as it’s so moist, light and lemony. If you do not like frosting on your cake, you can eat it plain. I definitely love it with cream cheese frosting. They go extremely well together!
