  1. Bring the water, milk, butter, salt and sugar to the boil. Shoot in the flour and stir over a moderate heat until the mixture comes away from the sides of the pan. Cook the mixture until it thickens and a white film should form in the bottom of the pan. Transfer the mixture to a mixing bowl. Allow the mixture to cool briefly, then beat in the eggs one at a time. Beat the dough until smooth and elastic. Spoon the dough into a piping bag with a star nozzle.

  2. Pipe about 20 strips of dough, each about 8 cm long, onto two lined baking trays. Put the baking trays one after the other into the preheated cooking space. Bake.

  3. Scrape the vanilla seeds out of the pod. Put the cream, vanilla pod and vanilla seeds in a pan and bring to the boil. Mix the flour and sugar in a bowl, add the eggs. Stir ⅓ of the cream into the egg mixture. Gently stir the egg mixture into the cream. Stir the mixture over a moderate heat until it thickens. Pour the custard into a bowl, cover the surface with cling film and place in the refrigerator to chill.
  4. Lightly whisk the chilled custard with a balloon whisk to loosen it up. Whip the cream until soft peaks form, then fold it into the custard. Spoon the mixture into a piping bag with a star nozzle.
  5. Cut the eclairs in half lengthways, pipe the vanilla cream into the bottom halves, then put the tops on.
