Banana Cream Puffs

Can I just tell you how happy these little Puffs of love made me this morning? WICKED HAPPY!! These are super simple too make but, literally look like they took hours on end to make. Traditionally you would use a “vanilla” base for this recipe but, because I’m a huge banana cream pie fan, I had decided to make my Puffs taste just like THAT!!  Creamy, delicious and let me tell you, there’s NO way you could just eat one!! Pop’em till ya drop. 😄 


1 cup water
1 stick butter
1 cup all purpose flour
1/4 teaspoons salt
4 eggs

Banana cream filling: 
1 package instant banana pudding mix
1 cup milk
2 cups heavy whipping cream

Bring water and butter to boil in a medium pan. Once boiling, remove from stove and add flour and salt. Stir till mixture forms a large ball. Transfer mixture to a mixing bowl. Start your mixture on med high speed and add all 4 eggs at the same time. Mix till smooth. Scoop mixture into a piping bag   (you could also use a plastic food storage bag and just cut the tip off) making sure to squeeze all of the air out of the piping bag. Pipe out each puff on a large parchment covered baking sheet making a swirl ( make your puffs about medium meatball size) . Bake in a preheated 400 degree oven for approximately 30 mins till slightly golden brown. Cool puffs for about 20 mins before filling. 

Banana cream filling: 
Add pudding mix  and milk and mix on low speed till smooth. Add whipping cream and mix on high for about 2 minutes till cream forms stiff peaks. Cut the tops off each puff and remove the insides. Fill each puff to the top with cream and place the tops back on. Refrigerate for about 1/2 hr and serve. 

Note: If desired, Drizzle melted chocolate and dust some powder sugar on tops of puffs.
