Chocolate Éclairs


  • 1 1/2 cupfuls of milk
  • 2/3 cupful of sugar
  • 1/4 cupful of flour
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 teaspoonful of salt
  • 1 teaspoonful of vanilla extract
  • 2 squares of scraped chocolate
  • 5 tablespoonfuls of powdered sugar
  • 3 tablespoonfuls of boiling water


Put milk in the double boiler. Beat together sugar, flour, eggs, and salt. Stir the mixture into the boiling milk. Cook fifteen minutes, stirring often. When cold, flavor with vanilla extract. Put scraped chocolate with powdered sugar and boiling water. Stir over the fire until smooth and glossy. Dip the tops of the eclairs in this as they come from the oven. When the chocolate icing is dry, cut open, and fill with the cream, which should be cold. If a chocolate flavor is liked with the cream, one tablespoonful of the dissolved chocolate may be added to it.
