dawn foods (Evesham, Worcestershire) is promising a breakthrough for bakers with the launch of its ’just-add-water’ Choux Pastry Mix. Once baked, it can then be filled with fresh cream or Dawn New England Frosting and finished with Dawn Spread ’n’ Gloss to make classic éclairs and choux buns.

The choux pastry can also be drizzled with melted chocolate for tempting profiterole dishes or can be used to make more complex and eye-catching products, such as chouquettes or Paris brest, using a variety of finishing techniques.

Dawn Foods’ marketing director Maggie Dagostino says: "Dawn’s Choux Pastry Mix means that our customers can now offer a range of great-tasting choux pastry products easily. We have produced a completely new product solution that will help to increase sales and profitability for our customers."
