  • 120 g butter, cut into small blocks
  • 1 cup water
  • pinch salt
  • 140 g cake flour
  • 4 free-range eggs, beaten
  • 2 bananas, peeled and mashed
  • 1 1/2 cup cream
  • 200 g dark chocolate, melted

Cooking Instructions

Preheat the oven to 200°C.


Place a saucepan over a medium to low heat and melt the butter in the water until combined and simmering.


Add the salt and the flour, reduce the heat and fold in using a wooden spoon for 5 minutes. Remove from the heat and allow to cool for a few minutes, then beat in the eggs until a smooth batter forms – it should drop easily from the spoon but hold its shape.


Drop spoonfuls of batter onto a greased baking tray and bake for 20 to 25 minutes, or until puffed up and golden. Remove from the oven and pierce each éclair with a sharp knife to allow the steam to escape.


Whip 1 cup of cream and fold in the bananas. Mix the melted chocolate with the remaining cream, a little at a time, until thick and smooth.


Make an incision into each eclair and fill with banana cream and top with the chocolate ganache.
