When I saw this recipe for Salted Caramel Banoffee Eclairs, I darn well nearly died. You know I love a good Salted Caramel anything so I had to try this out. I'm not sure why I waited almost a month to make them... but I was just scared I would make a mistake and all the salted caramel would have to go to milkshake heaven (do you remember this old post? Hah!).
Lol look at that piping... I wanted to make shorter stubbier eclairs, and my slapstick job made it look like huhu grubs.
Donal suggests to brush a bit of leftover egg wash before putting the eclair mixture into the oven...but I didn't read that step so they didn't quite come out shiny coated. Doesn't matter anyways I think cos you cover these potato looking babies up with Salted Caramel!
They're not as perfect as Donals, but they were all devoured by some friends we had over for dinner on Saturday. They taste just as good if you blob a bit of chocolate ganache on top and omit the banana, for a classic Chocolate Eclair!
