Binging with Babish: Death by Chocolate Éclair from The Simpsons
This week, we're headed back to Springfield to take a look at a deadly dessert: La Bombe, a premeditated éclair with 25 pounds of butter per square inch, chocolate so dark light cannot escape its surface, and a staggering 1 million calories. We can't break the rules of...well, physics, but can we make an equally "killer" pastry? Pastry "d'oh"? Is that something?

  • Jack

    Chef, made literally hundreds of liters/kilos of creme pat/anglaise. Don't waste your time with the cornstarch, whisk it through the sugar and dump it all in to the milk and eggs at the end :) only boil, temper and sweeten/thicken. You can always thin it, but if you overcook to thicken it you ruin the flavour. Yw

    I keep mishearing “whisking constantly” as “Wisconsinly.” I do not know what Wisconsinly means, but I feel somewhere between extra medium and pretty okay about it. Sleep deprivation is a heck of a drug…

    Babish, for your 10M subs, pick your favorite movie/TV show that you haven't dug into yet, and make something awesome from said show/movie. (Truthfully if I see one more nerd request Big Smoke's order or something from "Chowder" I'm going to lose my mind).

    Should've used black food coloring for the chocolate. Surprisingly, 100% dark chocolate doesn't look so dark.

    Why not pipe the pastry cream from the top of the eclair since it will be covered by the chocolate?🧐. It seems like doing it from the bottom could make for some unpleasant leaks onto ones lap.
