So I was at work listening to the world service, as you do, when I heard a piece on cronuts. Never heard of them? Read ... t-doughnut

So I have found a recipe for quick croissants ... ant-dough/

And a subsequent recipe for cronuts or fauxnuts...

Dough on last prove in the fridge right now, I will let you know how we get on.


BTW the boy who bakes blog/site is also excellent!

Mind. Blown. It's like everything good about desert put in a photo.

Hmm. Rum creme filling.

Hmm. Caramelized doce de leite with orange essence filling.

Hmm. Vanilla sugar and raisin filling.

Straight whipped cream and candied lemon peel.
