Cronuts

Cronuts | My Kitchen AddictionsI was watching my favorite morning show, The Today Show, recently and heard a “Year in Review” segment on popular new buzz words of 2013.  The word cronut was in the top ten.  I had never heard of such a word and when I learned it involved a new food trend, I was on it! Where did I go first?  The world-wide web, of course.  I was quickly educated with words and pictures of “what sounded like and looked like” a delicious, beautiful pastry.  Did I convince myself I had to make these pastries, which are a cross between a croissant and doughnut?  It didn’t take long! I searched for recipes and came upon these very interesting and well-made videos which offered tips and tricks for successful cronut making.  You must watch these videos!  I kept playing and pausing them while I prepared my first cronuts.

How to Make Cronuts:  Part I

How to Make Cronuts:  Part II

The recipe I used came from allrecipes.com

A disclosure statement from me:  I went a little overboard with pictures of my “making cronuts” experience.  Please bear with me! There are a lot of them!  Making cronuts was a very long process, therefore deserving a lot of visuals.  It was a bright, cheery day in my kitchen…perfect for taking pictures.  Oh, by the way…My first “making cronuts” experience was a SUCCESS! My grandchildren will be happy when I make cronuts again, because they loved them!!

And last but not least…I give total credit to Dominique Ansel, as he is the creator of the Cronut.

      Thanks for your comment! Our family loved these Cronuts, especially my grandchildren! I’m heading over to your blog to check it out. This school librarian loves to read!

  2. Sounds good to me! Definitely looks like a success. I haven’t tried making these yet… I can’t imagine anything less healthy but one day I’m sure I’ll have a go ;)

      Thanks for your comment Rachel! I sure chose the wrong time of year to make this recipe, as I always start my year out focusing on eating healthier. That’s why I took most of the cronuts to my grandchildren to taste, although I had to eat just one! I’m anxious to head over to your blog and check out some healthier choices.

  3. I just heard about Cronuts on Kelly & Michael and they were talking about how delicious they are, then I run across your blog. These look amazing! I’m definitely going to spend a day in the kitchen sometime making these! I wonder if they do well with gluten free ingredients, and I will let you know.
