The Joys of Creampuffs

Merry Xmas everyone!

Hopefully Santa has been really kind to everyone this year. Well, Santa did gave me a present - it was a toothache that comes with wisdom. I wanted to go and see a dentist but after waiting for 1 and a half hours and it's still not my turn, I gave up and decide to live with the pain.



Santa also delivered a box of creampuffs to me for Xmas. Knowing that I had toothache, snacking on these creamy creampuffs helps me forget about the pain. hehe...

The creampuff, which is also known as profiterole, is actually a choux pastry shaped in a ball with a hollow inside that can be split into half and filled with whipped cream or with my favourite custard and finish that off with a sprinkle of powdered sugar if you prefer. It's been one of my favourite tea-time snack or a dessert ever since I was a kid. Mom used to make them and I try emulating but failed badly. The choux pastry seemed too soft and sometimes it collapsed after I took it out from the oven.



Yes, there are many commercially made creampuffs out there but nothing tastes like a homemade one. One of the popular ones here available in our country is Beard Papa. I've tried it before and it didn't strike a right note on my tastebuds. The creampuff is big, too airy and dry. I prefer mine to be dainty, moist and creamy in the inside. Just until recently, I found one that is to my liking.



It's Kee's Creampuffs. They do not have a shop and orders are taken through their Facebook page or the telephone. I find these creampuffs unpretentious, delightful and yummy. It has the right amount of custard filling that is smooth and creamy which I can finish it in 2 bites at the same time maintaining my ladylike manners.

A little more info on the people behind Kee's Creampuffs : It was a hobby turned into a real business idea. They started with just some small orders around the neighbourhood and now that the word has got around, the business has finally kicked off. They are now set to take on to the online world and show everyone what they have to offer - nothing but the best creampuffs!

These creampuffs are homemade and thus there are no preservatives. Therefore, these delectable creampuffs has to be refrigerated and consumed within 2 days from the delivery date. I love it when these puffs are served chill. Of course I didn't finish the box of 25 creampuffs alone. I shared it with my colleagues and they all love it! Although they do not have a physical shop right now, I hope one day they are able to have a bakery of their own.



For those who loves a choux pastry, you'll understand the joy of a cup of tea and a creampuff in hand. Ok, make it two, no three, no... maybe all! I think I gobbled at least 5 creampuffs from that box. I'm glad I've found something so wonderful!

And since Xmas is all about sharing, I'll let you know where I got these delectable treats.
