Old Kitchenaid Cream Puff Recipe wanted

Started 1275226832.813 in Recipe Swap | Last reply 1275333059.967 by KD in OKC

In the Kitchenaid book that came with my mixer in 1983 [Tilt-head white 185 watt if I remember correctly], there was the best recipe ever for Cream Puffs. Lost the book and can't find the recipe in any of the Kitchenaid cookbooks or anywhere else so far. Does anyone have it to share?? They turned out perfect every time and no other recipe I've tried comes close!

Hi. I did some looking for you on amazon.com. They do have the 1983 kitchenaid recipe/manual books for sell there..here is the link. Hope this is what you are looking for.


Worrying is like rocking back and and forth in a rocking chair. It gives you something do to, but gets you nowhere!

This is from my 1975 manual.

Cream Puffs

1 cup water

1/2 cup butter or margarine

1/4 tsp. salt

1 cup sifted flour

4 large eggs

vanilla custard

confectioners sugar

In a sauce pan, heat water, butter and salt to full rolling boil. Reduce heat and quickly stir in flour, mixing vigorously with a wooden spoon until mixture leaves the sides of the pan in a ball. Remove from heat.

Attach bowl and beater and add flour mixture to bowl. Turn to speed 2 and add eggs, one at a time., beating approximately 30 seconds after each addition. Scrape bowl and beater. Mix at speed 4 for 15 seconds.

Drop dough from metal mixing spoon onto greased cookie sheet, or squeeze through pastry tube into any desired shape forming mounds 3 inches apart.

Bake at 400 degrees for 10 minutes. Lower heat to 350 and bake for 25 minutes. Puffs are ready when doubled in size, golden brown and firm to touch. Remove puffs from oven and cut the side of each with a sharp knife. Put them back into the turned-off oven. Keep oven door ajar and let stand for 10 minutes. Cool puffs on racks. Slit top, fill with vanilla custard filling. Sprinkle with confectioners sugar.

Yield: 12 large or 16 medium cream puffs.

Vanilla Custard Filling

1/2 cup sugar

1 tbsp. flour

1 tbsp. corn starch

1/4 tsp. salt

1 1/2 cups milk

1 egg yolk, slightly beaten

1 tsp. vanilla

1/2 cup whipping cream, whipped

In a saucepan, combine sugar, flour, cornstarch and salt. Gradually stir in milk. Cook and stir until mixture thickens and boils; cook and stir 2 to 3 minutes longer.

Stir a little hot mixture into egg yolk; return to hot mixture. Cook and stir until mixture just boils. Add vanilla; cool. Beat smooth, fold in whipped cream.

You may have already tried this but here is a link to the KitchenAid site, under the heading support, and then product literature. To the left is a place where you enter your mixer's model number. (If you don't know it they have a help page... most stand mixers have info on the bottom of the unit). I keyed mine in just to see what would pull up and sure enough, it was the whole booklet recipes and all. Hope this works for you!
