Chocolate Bouchée

It was a couple of weeks ago that I found the recipe for this Chocolate Bouchée on Youtube through a channel named “HidaMari Cooking“. Bouchée is a pastry shell that is usually filled with a creamy mixture. In French, “bouchée” in “une bouchée de” stands for “a mouthful of”. And so, it was used to name the pastries for their savoury and mouthwatering taste.

Because of lacking ingredients, the recipes and instructions that I wrote below would be slightly different from the original. Please refer to the video here for original instruction.


  1. Bouchée
    • 2 egg white
    • 50g sugar
    • 2 egg yolks
    • 40g cake flour
    • 30g almond flour
  2. Chocolate filling
    • 80g chocolate (merci cholate)
  3. Topping
    • Dark chocolate

Let’s bake!

Step 1: Whisk the egg white until it forms a soft peak. Gradually add 50g sugar while whisking at medium-high speed. (Please use a hand mixer to make the work easier!)

Step 2: Add the egg yolk and continue to whisk until the mixture blended well together.

Step 3: Shift in cake flour and almond flour. Fold them well together with a spatula.

Step 4: Transfer all the dough into a pipe. Pipe the Bouchée mixture little by little on a baking tray and shape them like this (4.5cm diameter):

Step 5: Bake in (pre-heated) oven at 170*C/ 340*F for 8-12 minutes.

Step 6: To make the Chocolate filling, I melt 80g of assorted merci chocolate using hot water. When the Bouchée is ready, I paste the right amount on one side of the pastries. For the drizzling, I melt about 10g of dark chocolate and transfer them into a pipe. Next, I cut only a little at the tip of the pipe then drizzle the chocolate on the top half of the Bouchée.

Don’t forget to wait for the Bouchée to cool down before putting the 2 halves together!

Cooling down~~

Have fun baking!

I made the first birthday cake ever!

It was a blueberry cake!

It was my roommate’s birthday yesterday and I decided to surprise her with a huge birthday cake!

It was really hard for me because I had to hide it from her for 2 days while we shared the same kitchen. When I asked her if she had any idea about the cake, she said it was until the afternoon of her birthday that she somehow guessed what I was hiding in the fridge (lol). Although it was my first time making such a big cake, I did struggle a bit but the process was really enjoyable. The recipe that I used to make the cake was from “Cooking tree” – a baking channel that I really like and usually learn from. For the detailed recipe and baking instructions, please refer to their video here.

Now, more cake pictures! ^^

I hope you feel inspired by these pictures and would try making a birthday cake for your loved one someday!

Happy birthday! 😛
