Without putting too much strain on the calorie account, the strips of choux pastry, which are based on French eclairs or love bones, sweeten the afternoon. The secret is a low-fat quark filling plus delicious, low-calorie berries.


Almost everyone likes raspberries - but if you feel like other berries, go ahead: the delicate strips of dough also taste great with currants, strawberries or a berry mix.

Kitchen utensils

1 Measuring cups, 1 Pot, 1 Wooden spoon, 1 Cutting board, 1 Small knife, 1 Dough scraper, 1 Piping bag (with star tip; 10 mm diameter), 1 Brush, 1 Baking sheet, 1 Parchment paper, 1 Oven rack, 1 Bowl, 1 Mixing bowl, 1 Hand mixer (with whisk attachments), 1 Serrated knife (or kitchen shears), 1 Tablespoon, 1 Kitchen scale

Preparation steps

Raspberry Eclairs preparation step 1

Bring 125 ml (approximately 1/2 cup) water, butter and salt to a boil in a pot. Add flour all at once and stir with a wooden spoon to form a dough ball.

Raspberry Eclairs preparation step 2

When dough pulls away from the sides of the pot, remove from heat. Stir in 1 egg with a wooden spoon and allow dough to cool.

Raspberry Eclairs preparation step 3

Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Sprinkle baking soda on dough and stir.

Raspberry Eclairs preparation step 4

Pour batter into a piping bag with a star shape (about 10 mm/approximately 1/2 inch in diameter) and pipe 12 stripes of dough about 9 cm (approximately 3 1/2 inches) long onto the parchment paper.

Raspberry Eclairs preparation step 5

Brush dough with milk and top with sunflower seeds. Bake in preheated oven at 200°C (fan: 180°C, gas mark 3)(approximately 400°F/convection 350°F) on middle oven rack for about 25 minutes.

Raspberry Eclairs preparation step 6

Place baking sheet on a cooling rack and let eclairs cool slightly. Cut each eclair with a bread knife or kitchen shears lengthwise, then separate halves and let cool.

Raspberry Eclairs preparation step 7

Meanwhile, rinse raspberries. Cut vanilla bean in half lengthwise and scrape out seeds.

Raspberry Eclairs preparation step 8

Combine quark with vanilla seeds and sugar in a bowl. Add cream and beat until stiff.

Raspberry Eclairs preparation step 9

Spread creamy filling on bottom halves of pastry strips, add raspberries and cover with top halves of pastry strips. Serve immediately or cover and store in a cool place.


Instead of butter, could I use another ingredient to replace it? (covid-19 quarantined situation)
Cyndy from EAT SMARTER's picture
Thanks for your question. Quarantine is requiring us all to be creative. You could try replacing the butter with shortening. Be aware that butter has more water so you may need to add a bit of water. Also, the flavor will be altered, as shortening has no flavor. Good Luck!
