Eclair donuts. Sure to make you feel fancy.
If you’ve been following us for a while, it is probably very clear that we thoroughly enjoy 2 things: Filled pastries and donuts. Naturally, we thought why not combine those things into one super delicious thing because sometimes that works.
Lindsay here! First off, let me take a minute to complain about my 100 year old body. Has anyone else started working out more with 2018? Yes? Does your body just hurt all the time like it is rejecting exercise? Yea? Ok. Let’s be honest. I workout to justify all the Sour Patch Watermelon that I eat. But now I am just 100% in pain all the time.
I had to physically lift my own leg up to put my rain boots on the other day. My poor little legs were too sore to lift themselves to that unreasonable height. Then I almost had to call for help to get them off. Sometimes life is hard and when life gets hard, I eat Sour Patch Watermelon. Causing me to force myself to workout because of all the candy. Oh, the circle of life.
This recipe came to me one night while I was struggling to come up with baking inspiration. I knew I wanted to bake something but I just didn’t know what. I really wanted to make donuts, but not just plain old boring donuts. BUT, I also wanted to make eclairs. Because I fricken love eclairs. Then, that’s when the light bulb went off in my head. I thought..what if I pipe eclair dough into donuts? Then they would be eclair donuts….GENIUS.
Are these basically just round eclairs with a hole in the middle? Yes…But another term for a round pastry with a hole in the middle is a donut..So there. These desserts do not need an explanation! They are delicious! 2 desserts in 1 if you ask me. All that is missing is the sprinkles. Someone send sprinkles. I am all out.
We hope 2018 is being good to you so far!
