Cooking Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 200°C.
  2. Place a saucepan over a medium to low heat and melt the butter in the water until combined and simmering.
  3. Add the salt and the flour, reduce the heat and fold in using a wooden spoon for 5 minutes. Remove from the heat and allow to cool for a few minutes, then beat in the eggs until a smooth batter forms – it should drop easily from the spoon but hold its shape.
  4. Drop spoonfuls of batter onto a greased baking tray and bake for 20 to 25 minutes, or until puffed up and golden. Remove from the oven and pierce each éclair  with a sharp knife to allow the steam to escape.
  5. Whip 1 cup of cream and fold in the bananas. Mix the melted chocolate with the remaining cream, a little at a time, until thick and smooth.
  6. Make an incision into each eclair and fill with banana cream and top with the chocolate ganache.
