Telling us what the ingredients are, something most bakers could figure out on their own, isn't the same as giving us the recipe.


To qualify as a recipe the ingredient amounts need to be given. Unlike cooking, baking is more scientific and knowing the amounts & measuring them accurately is important if you want good results.

Well - as I suspected.  Make or buy puff pastry.  Cut in a donut shape.  Fry at a relatively low temp (320 or so).  Fill with jam or whatever you like.  Frost with a simple glaze or something famcier.

People needed a set of rudimentary instructions for this?

I was with them right up until they got to deep frying. Engaging in deep frying in a domestic kitchen wastes a ton of oil, is a pain to clean up, and is not as effective as other methods.

Other methods for what?  What is a substitute for deep frying?  You plan to make these in your T-Fal Acti-fry?  An oven? (Enjoy your round puff pastries.)  A microwave?  Do enlighten us on exactly what is a better substitute for a lidded, filtered, deep-fat fryer for making a fried food.

Actually, baking in a very hot oven for a short time was going to be my solution, seeing as how croissants are typically baked. But I meant in general, deep frying is not feasible for a person cooking for themself at home. It's wasteful and messy. TFA was like when someone wants to know how a restaurant makes some complicated recipe, and a guy goes, "It's easy, the first thing you do is fire up your salamander!"

I have a countertop fryer.  Two, actually - a 1.5-Liter for normal jobs, and a small-turkey-sized one for whole birds.  I live alone.  If you do it right, frying is not any more unhealthy than any other dry cooking method.  If you use the lid on your fryer, it's not messy.  Assuming you don't mind washing dishes in general, clean-up is not that big a deal.  If you filter your oil and reuse it, it's not wasteful - and in fact, if my calculations are correct, my fryer uses less electricity than my oven.

<shrug>  Each to her own, I suppose.  I won't be making these things anyway, since I'm Atkins.  But I do love me some naked fried chicken.

Buy one good donut and one good croissant. Eat them at the same time. It tastes almost the same and is much cheaper and easier.

Also apparently "Cronut" is a trademarked term so in DC they started calling them doissants

I've made 'cronuts' since long before they were cool, or were called cronuts. Most any croissant dough recipe will do. They're easier to make than a croissant because you just stamp them out with a doughnut cutter.

They can be cooked nicely for the most part in low temp frying oil in a pan, though you won't get the uniform texture like you would with a forced submerge deep fryer. The only real pain in the ass to making them is the flouring and folding.

Salamanders rock.

I have a fish fryer. It wastes a lot of oil. It is pretty simple though.
 
2013-08-11 06:51:14 PM  
I guess I should add.. if you don't want to go to the bother of even making the dough, get a few containers of Pillsbury Grands biscuits, cut the center out, and fry those. Once they're slathered in all that icing and shiat they put on cronuts, most people won't be able to tell the difference. The dough is very similar in texture.

Seriously? All you need is a pan with like 1.5" of oil. Maybe twenty cents worth.

not exactly sure what that means. I was only trying to show my exasperation regarding this whole cronut thing.
a pastry i'm sure 99.99% of the population has never or will never see. or for that matter could a rats ass about .
you have asked me to find a companion, somehow learn the gift of flight, then some how while flying (I assume at night) copulate. i'm not sure how at that point the "cow" moon as you describe it, would know we were "f**King" at it, but i'm sure when you typed it, it sounded really relevant.

You strike me as the kind of person who says "hold my O'Douls while I roll the die" at his weekly D&D parties when he decides to go on a rampage with his crossdressing elven mage /concubine and its level eleventy modified wooden toilet roll holder of deep splintering.

I saw a sign in a local bakery here in Ottawa on Friday advertising cronuts. I hereby declare the fad officially dead.

Because Ottawa is where fashion goes to die.

All I have to do now is eat one. It's the coup de grace.

New age hipster doughnut bullshiat.

Take a doughnut.  Cut it in half, put some other bullshiat in it, fry it again, or something.  Who the fark knows.  Wait in line for two hours to buy one at $20 a pop and marvel at your superior hipster decisionmaking skills.

Or don't.  Grab that pack of Ready To Bake cinnamon rolls on sale at the store.  Call it a day.

It's a deep fry oil filter/pot. The can on top has a replaceable filter on the bottom. You stack the cans and pour the warm oil into the top. It filters down into the bottom pot where you store it with the attached lid. Next time you need to deep fry something, you reuse the oil. You can do this several times before the oil becomes too adulterated.

Obviously oil will go rancid if you let it sit too long, but if deep frying is a frequent thing for you, this kind of oil pot is very convenient.

At the end of the oil's likfe, you heat it up, pour a bit of this stuff into it and let it cool. Just throw away the block of grease. No pouring anything down the drain.
