The word noon khamei (which is written in different ways such as profitrole, profitrolle, and profiterole) has existed in English since the 16th century. Its original meaning is not clear in both English and French. 

Later, it was said that this word means a kind of dough roll baked under ashes. 

In the 17th century, potage de profiteolls or profiterolls was a soup of small dry bread (probably round loaves) boiled in almond water and garnished with truffles and other things.

Migration has always been a factor in the transfer of science, knowledge, art, and ideas. No one knows the exact origin of cream bread, but it seems that this sweet has a long history.

The French writer François Rabelais (1533-1494) mentioned it in his book called Gargantua. This pastry was originally prepared in Italy with a more bread-like texture.

The court chef of Catherine de Medici, a noble Italian woman from the Italian Medici family, invented a creamy pastry dough for her wedding ceremony with the French king, Henry II, around 1547, and it was from this point that the pastry Cream came to France with its original recipe.

The recipe for cream puff, like everything else, underwent changes and entered a whole new level in the 17th century, which was the peak of the flourishing of pastry art in Europe, until finally, in the 18th century, the great chef, Antonin Kerme (1833-1784) presented a recipe that is still used to prepare cream pastry. He added cream to the bread and actually made noon khamei famous.

He prepared bread that was filled with cream and dipped in warm caramel, and this dish was approved and admired by everyone who tasted it.

Creamy bread is sometimes placed on a pyramid base and decorated with chocolate or caramel sauce. The French version of this pastry, which is very similar to Persian cream puffs, is called éclair.

The difference is that, eclairs are prepared in the form of cylinders of approximately 7 cm, which are filled with cream and covered with chocolate after baking.

Thus, he invented the Croquembouche, a tower of cream bread. This sweet quickly became famous and became the wedding cake chosen by the French; France is where this sweet is still popular; Now, January 2nd is known as the national cream puffs day in France.

After Europe, it can be said that cream bread came from America in 1851 and appeared on the menu of American restaurants.

The interesting thing is that the pastry chefs of the state of Wisconsin have become so expert and professional in baking cream puffs that this state is famous for its cream bread.
