A local bakery is doing a version of these things here in Vancity only instead of calling them cronuts  they are calling them "Frissants" and apparently they are getting pretty popular.

Aren't these basically like a tall cruller? Light and airy (unless filled).

Like Croissants needed improving? Except now they're covered in garbage. and cost you twice the price.

From people who've tried them they are apparently like a donut crossed with a croissant and then liberally sprinkled with crack.

Theory here is that a traditional donut is too heavy and sweet for the modern consumer taste and a croissant is too light and bland but if you mix them just right they balance each other out beautifully.

And in a city where coffee culture is king an appropriately trendy side nosh to go with your bean juice is de rigueur.

Yep, basically an untwisted cruller, for when you want the sugar rush of a donut, without the density of a donut.

NO

A cruller is made from a choux dough, which is cooked dough essentially.

The croissant and these new creations are made from a laminated dough, which is rolled and folded repeatedly (often with butter in between.

I nearly went into a diabetic coma just looking at that picture, dammit.

Which is weird as I don't even have the diabeetus.

Still want one, just saying.

Cruller


Good luck getting a quality cruller here in San Diego; our donut shops are regrettable. Unless you hit one of the Cambodian mom'n'pops.

/gonna ask the lady at Sunny Donuts on Clairemont Mesa/Ruffin if she can do it. They have donuts and croissant sandwiches.. don't know if they bake up the croissants on site.

Quantum Apostrophe: So, um, it's a vol au vent??


Not exactly, but certainly more like a vol au vent than a cruller. A vol au vent is baked, not fried. Also, a vol au vent traditionally has a lid. So, this is not a vol au vent. More like a vol au vent's uncouth, knock-off-wearing, obese American cousin.

But a vol au vent filled with pastry cream and with its lid dipped in chocolate does sound great.
 
2013-07-09 03:18:22 AM
I have yet to try one of these.

apparently the owner of one of the shops makes a hundred or so the night before, and they sell out within 20 minutes of the shop being open.

There's a line.
/there's always a line.
//still want one

I'd like to try one. Anybody hear of a good bakery in Scottsdale where I could get one on my way through?

Oh come on, who formulates theories on donuts and balance of donuts and croissa... I said donut twice, by law that means I have to go and buy a doughnut. Excuse me.
 
2013-07-09 08:23:19 AM
Oh dear lord.

I've made puff pastry dough before, but I usually used it for things like wellingtons or pot pies. I'm going to have to try this once I don't have to watch what I'm eating anymore.

How do you catch a crog? With a crognet.

So I guess in Colorado, we'll see these but they'll be chronic cronuts,

SO you can have yer weed and solve the munchies all at once.

Cronuts are finicky, carb laden sugar highs.

Twinkies are back on the market next week. Cronuts will be over then.

There's a place in town that makes it. They've been on cable TV for their cupcakes - which are really just piles of frosting with a tiny cake underneath (I hate those, give me lots of cake with a thin coat of frosting on top). So I've been hesistant to try their cronuts.

A hot croissant with butter, jelly, and/or triple creme though? Oh f*ck me, that's heaven.

It's just a matter of time before someone makes a Luther burger with cronuts.

After scrolling through that, two things come to mind.

1. Ouch, my arteries.
2. WTF is a "choog"?

I give Duncan Donuts until the end of the year to release their own version. Once it hits Joe Sixpack, all the hipsters and yuppies will move on to some other expensive new food craze.
