For the Pastry
Heat the oven to 220°C. Combine the water, milk & butter in a saucepan. Warm until the butter has melted. Take off the heat & add the flour salt & sugar. Mix well. Place back on a low heat & stir for a few minutes until the mix forms a ball & comes away from the side of the pan. Place into a KitchenAid Mixer & beat with a paddle attachment, adding the eggs one at a time until combined. Beat for a minute or two until the mixture becomes glossy. Place in a large piping bag, with a plain nozzle & pipe onto a lined baking tray or eclair pan in 10cm lengths. Bake in a hot oven for about 5 minutes until they have risen & start to get a little colour. Turn down the heat to 170°C & bake a further 10-15minutes until the centre has dried out & is not doughy. Allow to cool. Cut in half & pipe the pastry cream onto the bottom & dip the top with chocolate glaze. Enjoy with a coffee or tea & great company.
For the Coffee Pastry Cream
Heat the milk & coffee in a saucepan. Mix the egg yolks, sugar & cornflour together. When the milk has come up to the boil, pour over the egg mix & stir. Strain into the saucepan & stir constantly until it thickens & just comes to the boil. Pour into a bowl & allow to cool completely. Once cool fold in the whipped cream & pipe into the eclairs. The pastry cream can be made the day before.
 For the Chocolate Glaze
Heat the cream, sugar syrup and glucose. Add the chocolate & turn off the heat. Stir until the chocolate has melted & set aside to cool to room temperature. You can store this in the refrigerator & use for glazing cakes or a great icecream topping!
