Binging with Babish: Death by Chocolate Éclair from The Simpsons

This week, we're headed back to Springfield to take a look at a deadly dessert: La Bombe, a premeditated éclair with 25 pounds of butter per square inch, chocolate so dark light cannot escape its surface, and a staggering 1 million calories. We can't break the rules of...well, physics, but can we make an equally "killer" pastry? Pastry "d'oh"? Is that something?

    Chef, made literally hundreds of liters/kilos of creme pat/anglaise. Don't waste your time with the cornstarch, whisk it through the sugar and dump it all in to the milk and eggs at the end :) only boil, temper and sweeten/thicken. You can always thin it, but if you overcook to thicken it you ruin the flavour. Yw

    Babish, for your 10M subs, pick your favorite movie/TV show that you haven't dug into yet, and make something awesome from said show/movie. (Truthfully if I see one more nerd request Big Smoke's order or something from "Chowder" I'm going to lose my mind).

    Why not pipe the pastry cream from the top of the eclair since it will be covered by the chocolate?🧐. It seems like doing it from the bottom could make for some unpleasant leaks onto ones lap.
