Binging with Babish: Death by Chocolate Éclair from The Simpsons

Birt 3 ágú 2021
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?

  • 10 million subscriber special idea: livestream eating a banana and seeing what happens?

  • For some reason the channel pfp reminds me of Micheal from Vsauce

  • Im eating one rn 😱

  • Take him into custardy boys -Chief Wiggum

  • I was told to spell Éclair but at the time I didn’t even know what it was

  • If you REALLY wanted to make this a deadly eclair (as well as making it literally so dark light can't escape). You could add some Vantablack pigment.

  • The Chocolate is so dark, that despite being only 13% of volume contains more than 50% calories.

  • Thumbs down and never recommending this video. If you insist on doing these fake recipes from animated sitcoms then I expect total accuracy. YOU DIDN'T ADD ENOUGH BUTTER!!!! Do better bruh

  • *Its lowfat...*

  • Why do I do this to myself when I have a sweet tooth but no sweets.

  • This reminds me of my roommate who put milk powder in his milk so that he could drink more milk per milk

  • Mixing metric and freedom units dang it..

  • What is some random person offer you a banana and you eat it... and then it’s the end. That person must feel guilty for the rest of their life tho...

  • hes useing nonstick spray to mke something stick??

  • Legend says he is still whisking constantly to this very minute

  • You forgot to ad the poison xd

  • Me after eating this thing and literally friggin dying: *worth it*

  • If I was to make this at home, I might dash in some almond extract or the like to give it an arsenic--ish flavor to make it 'deathlike' without it being actually deadly for the most part.

  • That extra whipped cream on top is so unnecessary

  • Gotta have those million calories!

  • But is that chocolate so dark that you have to swear you are not Anish Kapoor or eating it on his behalf?

  • Just watching all that butter being incorporated into this recipe is choking up my arteries ☠️☠️☠️

  • Hey hey hey!!!!!! Nice watch my man

  • Did this man really say he ran out of "D'oh" ?!

  • How has anyone familiar with the metric system not told this guy that liquid measurements are in Millilitres and not Grams? Totally killed the fantasy for me

  • Yo I’ve been here since like 700k

  • This was the latest episode I watched lol

  • I love this man’s voice

  • Non stick spray to keep parchment stuck seems ironic

  • Rintaro want know your location.

  • I thought I was the only person allergic to bananas Lol

  • chantilly cream, like champagne, is bound to a location, ive been there and it is DELICIOUS

  • I wanna have Gordon Ramsay react to this as say something like “this is a f**king donut of diabetes and you will die after one mouthful”

  • 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

  • I keep mishearing “whisking constantly” as “Wisconsinly.” I do not know what Wisconsinly means, but I feel somewhere between extra medium and pretty okay about it. Sleep deprivation is a heck of a drug…

  • babish talking is just relaxing

  • ¿La mantequilla tiene que estar cortada en daditos...? la madre que me parió...

  • la bombe james

  • honestly looks a lot better than it is, we have these at every "restauraunt" here and its great but u cant eat more than half either way this looks much better than ours

  • traditional Wakandian food

  • I LOVE eclairs. I havent had one in years. And all I want is to eat 8 of them right now

  • Finally

  • 100% As in 100% chocolate with no sugar they never say what it stands for I mean I know it means really dark chocolate but is it basically just chocolate with no sugar?? Just wondering

  • 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).

  • Ordinary Sausage collab when?

  • This voice-over is a mix of Bob Ross and Deadpool. nice to ear!

  • I want to see the Flaming Homer from the Simpsons lol.

  • I tried to grab the Screen.

  • @Babish Culinary Universe, Can you do Homer's favourite donut: raspberry swirl with a double glaze?

  • Should've used black food coloring for the chocolate. Surprisingly, 100% dark chocolate doesn't look so dark.

  • La Bomba is the size of chicken whole chicken. These are just eclairs.

  • 7:51 Vertically*

  • LA BOMBE Beyond insanity...

  • To sum up the video: whisk constantly

  • ME wishing to be alergic to bananas because theyre sooo disgusting

  • *The flavor must be explosive*

  • nice beard

  • Please do some of the dishes that the try guys made in their without a recipe series!

  • Make the bowl of change from the Simpson’s

  • you reveal your weak point!!!

  • Light could clearly escape the surface of that chocolate, you should have used some black food dye.

  • I got something for you *Diabetes*

  • The first time I’m cream puffs someone in my group managed to accidentally make one look like a duck

  • "No, no. This is just a picture."


  • I’d rather see him make the bowl of change.

  • Not me thinking that was a hamburger with whipped cream

  • "Ive seen this man eat a bowl of change" is to this day my favourite simpsons quote

  • So that's why it's $9 at le boulanger

  • As a pastry student I can say it, this video is full of false information

  • 2:04, the irony of using non-stick spray as an adhesive

  • 25 pounds of butter per square inch

  • "Dis will be Andrew Rea's last lagniappe"

  • Its basicly a france pastry named éclair with top cream

  • Isn't that weird he uses non stick spray to stick the parchment paper to the baking sheet?

  • That's some tasty eclair you got there. I think if you want a real killer dessert, then Paula Deen fried cheesecake will do the trick.

  • corn syrup is actually High corn fructose syrup its actually 10x sweeter then canned sugar so folks its very unhealthy it will spike you insulin levels significantly,,,eating to much of that can cause diabetes and a like Warning folks FDA WILL NEVER TELL YOU THIS

  • So that means our dough is ready to pipe *unzips pants* So were gonna place it into a piping bag *zips up pants*

  • ⏰ 🍫 📹 📝

  • Guys it didn’t work, he’s not dead

  • I’m sad he still hasn’t done anything from the show Chowder

  • What does Éclair mean? Heartattack? :D

  • Where is the side dish of bowl of change?

  • Pls tell me whats the diffrent between bread flower and flour

  • Am really glad that the end was eddited after me drolling the whole video

  • "you have the moral backbone of a chocolate eclair" -John Mulaney

  • You made death 👍

  • It was supposed to be 25 pounds you got to redo the whole video

  • So this is USAs version of a semla?

  • I love how much effort you put into these and play the clip of where it was in the show to give the context. Dam now I'm hungry 🤣

  • If you want it to be a million calories add some uranium, like a couple miligrams Correction: even less than a miligram, one gram is in the billions of calories.

  • Please do Marge Simpson Pretzels

  • This episode was on today, so here I am.

  • Worth dying for

  • It was really disappointing when I discovered that most eclairs in the US are stuffed with cream instead of custard

  • I'm currently on a weight loss journey It be freaking epic and a little silly once I get to my goal if I celebrate by making one of these. I don't know why I just find the concept funny.,

  • 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.

  • Boy you look like an eclair

  • Black hole chockolate xD

  • Like if his voice calm down! XD
