Cronuts

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

http://www.guardian.co.uk/lifeandstyle/ ... t-doughnut

So I have found a recipe for quick croissants

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.

Cheers

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

Curing is not an exact science... So it's not a sin to bin.

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.
Chip the glasses and crack the plates!
