Summer berry chocolate éclairs
Eclairs are so delicious but some people can find them tricky to make. This recipe shows just how easy they are. 

190ml water

60g butter

115g plain flour

3 eggs

110g cooking chocolate

250ml heavy cream

tbsp icing sugar

120g raspberries and blueberies

Preheat the oven to 220°C / 425°F / Gas mark 7. Line two baking trays with parchment paper.

To make the pastry, combine the water and the butter together in a saucepan over a medium heat. Bring it to the boil before removing from the heat and adding the flour.

Mix the flour with the butter mix until it is a smooth consistency. It will look like a ball of dough.

Leave to cool before putting it into a mixing bowl. Beat in the egg and keep beating until the mixture is smooth.

Spoon into a pastry bag and pipe 12 sausage-like shapes onto the baking tray.

Place in the oven for 20 minutes until golden and crispy.

Remove from oven and allow to cool slightly so that you can cut a slit into each side.

While they are cooling you can make the filling. Mix the cream with the icing sugar until it is like whipped cream. Place into a pastry pipe and pipe out onto each eclair..

To make the topping, melt the chocolate in a small bowl over a pot of boiling water. Spoon the chocolate over each eclair and leave to set.

Put a few berries in the centre before serving.
