The famous French dessert Crocan Bush was chosen as the qualifying flavor in the MasterChef All Star competition today. The contestants worked hard to make this challenging dessert. So, what is croquant bush and how is it made? Here is the croquant bush recipe and tips given in MasterChef.
What is Crocan Bush?
Croquembouche is a dessert called croquembouche, which means “bush” in French. This dessert is made by combining profiteroles, which are small dough balls, with caramelized sugar. Profiteroles can be filled with different ingredients such as cream, chocolate, fruit or nuts. Crocan bush is a sumptuous dessert usually served on special occasions such as weddings, birthdays or New Year's Eve.
How to Make a Croquant Bush?
To make croquant bush, you must first prepare the profiterole dough. For the profiterole dough, boil the butter, water, salt and flour in a pot. Then remove from the heat and add the eggs one by one and mix. The consistency of the dough should be soft and shiny. Put the dough in a squeeze bag and squeeze it into small balls on a baking tray lined with baking paper. Bake in the oven at 200 degrees for 20-25 minutes. Let the cooked profiteroles cool.
To fill the profiteroles, prepare a cream or chocolate sauce of your choice. Put the cream or chocolate in a piping bag and fill it into the profiteroles. If you wish, you can also decorate profiteroles with ingredients such as fruit or nuts.
To create the croquant bush, melt one cup of granulated sugar in a saucepan. When the sugar caramelizes, remove it from the heat and let it cool slightly. Invert a plate or mold in which you will make the croquant bush and put baking paper on it. Create a circle by dropping caramelized sugar onto the baking paper with a spoon. This circle will be the base of the croquet bush.
Then, spread the caramelized sugar on the profiteroles and arrange the profiteroles on the base. Create a cone shape by gluing the profiteroles together. Place a profiterole on top of the croquant bush and secure with caramelized sugar.
You can decorate your croquet bush as you wish. For example, you can pull caramelized sugar like a thin wire and wrap it over the croquant bush. Or you can decorate with powdered sugar, colored candies, chocolate chips or fruits.
When your croquant bush is ready, carefully remove the wax paper and serve your croquant bush. Enjoy your meal!
