These are my husband's favourites. The choux pastry is from Rose Levy Beranbaum's Pastry Bible and it works beautifully every time. Sometimes I flavour them with coffee or white chocolate or I just do them the traditional way with creme Chantilly and chocolate glaze. However they're done - they start getting scoffed before the last one even gets iced!
Combine the water, butter, sugar and salt in a medium saucepan and bring to a full rolling boil.
Remove saucepan from heat, add the flour all at once and stir with a wooden spoon til the mixture comes together.
Turn the heat to low and put saucepan back on and stir and mash continuously for about 3 mins to cook the flour.
Either put the mixture in a food processor or in a large mixer bowl and process or beat for 30 seconds.
Add the eggs one at a time and keep mixing til they're incorporated.
Fill a piping bag fitted with a 1/2 inch plain round tube, with pastry.
Pipe 10cm lengths on a baking tray lined with baking paper.
Run the tines of a fork down the tops of the eclairs to encourage the pastry to crack evenly when they bake.
Bake in a 180C oven for 30 mins.
When cooked, gently make a hole under each eclair for steam to escape enabling them to dry out inside.
Put them back in the turned off oven for another half an hour to cool down slowly.
Beat cream with all the other ingredients til firmly whipped.
Fill a piping bag and fill each eclair via the hole you made at the base.
Put the butter in a saucepan over really low heat til melted.
Add the icing sugar, milk and caramel essence and beat til smooth over the heat.
Dip the top of each eclair in the icing and let them cool.
I found a nice thick caramel essence at Spotlight (of all places!) but you can get it at specialty stores.
I use the White chocolate powder from Gloria Jeans. It gives the cream filling a really nice flavour and great moussy texture.

Darwin ---the capital city of the Northern Territory Darwin has a pace that might - almost - be described as brisk, at least by Northern Territory standards. The city's populace now reflects its proximity to Asia: the mix of some 50 cultures including Aborigines, Vietnamese, Filipinos, Malays, New Guineans, Pacific Islanders, Japanese, Indonesians and European Australians, provides a strong cosmopolitan flavour. The Northern Territory’s capital, Darwin was founded in 1869, after more than 40 years of failed settlements in the north – abandoned one after another because of malaria outbreaks, cyclones, Aboriginal attacks and supply failure due to the sheer distance from the other white settlements. It was named after Charles Darwin, one of whose shipmates on the Beagle discovered the bay in 1839. The best way to appreciate Darwin's multiethnic mix is to visit this market, held every Thursday and Sunday evening from April to October, with stalls selling foods from around the world and handmade craft including crocodile products, indigenous art and jewellery. If you have come to Darwin city, you will understand the local culture and history of Darwin, taste some delicious food and enjoy the amazing scenery here ,also take some photo is a pretty good experience . do you think so.
