Default Powder cream puffs

I can't seem to find a recipe for *powder cream puffs*. I wonder if someone
has a recipe they'd like to share. Someone told me they're also known as
*sponge kisses*.

How are they different from cream puffs? What kind of powder? There
are recipes including cocoa powder, baking powder and malted milk
powder, to name a few.

Since you're in "AU," this might be what you're looking for:

Default Powder cream puffs

Sponge Kisses

[PWMU Cookbook]

2 eggs, their weight in sugar, butter, S.R. flour, cornflour, a few
drops of lemon essence.

Sift flour and cornflour, and beat the eggs. Cream butter and sugar,
add the eggs, lemon essence and then the flours.
Put in teaspoons on greased cookie slide. Bake in mod. oven 10-15 min.
When cool, sandwich together with raspberry or strawberry jam and sift
icing sugar over top.

Notes: a little fine grated lemon rind instead of essence.
whipped cream with jam would be nice.

"Sponge Kisses" made me think of these meriingue cookies, and I have no
idea if I'm even close:



They're actually tiny sponge cakes, filled with cream, and dusted with icing
sugar.

Thanks for trying.

Jen

What quantities Jen?
Weigh the eggs and then match the other ingredients
to that weight.

By the way, they are yum, haven't made them in a long while!

Cheers

I'm with you now. I thought it was just the sugar that matched the weight
in eggs. So everything's the same weight? Thanks, I'll try it some time
soon.

Sounds interesting, but what's S.R. flour? And can you describe cornflour?
I'm thinking it's either what I'd call cornstarch or a fine cornmeal, but
those two are pretty different from each other.

Thanks,

Donna

Cornflour usually means cornstarch.... trying to find what the heck sr

Found lots of sites that call for it, but still don't know what it is.

Cornflour is the same as cornstarch in USA. SR Flour is self raising
flour - it's flour mixed with baking powder, you can make your own by mixing
1 cup plain flour with 2 teaspoons baking powder.

Betcha it's self-rising, Donna.
And I'm betting on cornstarch being the equivalent of cornflour (I
sometimes see ground mustard referred to as mustard flour).
Maybe the RFC FAQ file has it in the glossary of ingredients.

Those weights work out to roughly these U.S. volume measurements:

SPONGE KISSES - POWER CREAM PUFFS

2 medium eggs (4-oz)
1/2 cup (4-oz) granulated sugar
1/4 pound (4-oz) (8-Tbs) butter
1 cup (4-oz) self rising flour (or 1 cup flour + 2 tsp baking powder)
3/4 cup (4-oz) cornflour (cornstarch)
a few drops of lemon essence (lemon extract)


Sift flour and cornflour, and beat the eggs. Cream butter and sugar,
add the eggs, lemon essence and then the flours.
Put in teaspoons on greased cookie slide. Bake in mod. oven 10-15 min.
When cool, sandwich together with raspberry or strawberry jam and sift
icing sugar over top.

Notes: a little fine grated lemon rind instead of essence.
whipped cream with jam would be nice.
