I guess I am more than far behind this crazy New York food hype but to my excuse, I live in Germany and it always takes a bit of time until American trends roll across the ocean to our little shores.
How I learned about this Cronuts trend?
Well - I watched the last episode on two broke girls and that told me all about it.
I instantly felt the urge to try one of those - supposedly heavenly divine - creations but how?
For a few scary seconds I actually thought about baking some - ME - B A K I N G !!!
I case you do not know: I NEVER bake!
Ok - I RARELY bake, because I am afraid of it. I did bake this garlic and herb pull-apart bread though and it was almost a success meaning it didn't rise but tasted great anyway. And I once made a delicious cake. But that one did not require baking...
Anyway - I couldn't possible bake a Cronut - have you read a recipe? - it takes a crazy amount of folding and waiting and folding and waiting and some more folding and waiting until the dough is made.
So I asked on my Twitter if anyone have had a Cronut yet and found out, that there is a creative baker in the south of Germany who sells his own version called "Doissant".
Pretty name, right? A bit french sounding...
He even shows a video about the making of the Doissants and i must say they do look tasty.
Later that day I had to run to our local bakery to get us some bread for dinner and then: Right in front of my very eyes: A CRONI!!!
Our local bakers version of a Cronut! And what a cute name. Well, I guess that trend truly arrived and bakers are really creative people.
"Ask, and it shall be given you..." - I was so relieved I didn't have to bake!
And guess what - there was no line and plenty of Cronuts-Doissants-Cronis for 1.45Euro each...
All I had to do was taking a picture and then eat.
PS. - Thank you - one was more than enough - a bit too heavy for my taste :)
