A cruffin is simply a muffin made out of croissant dough. The pastry is made by proofing and baking laminated dough in a muffin mould or a popover tin would be even better. You can fill them with jam, cream, or curd. We prefer ours just plain or with a light dust of icing sugar because these croissant-muffins are rich enough to be savoured just as they are. These buttery, flaky cruffins are great for brunch or an afternoon snack and they are easier to make than you think.

  • 300 g All purpose flour
  • 1.5 tsp Dried yeast
  • 3 tbsp Raw sugar
  • A pinch of salt
  • 175 ml 3.5% Milk
  • 200 g Butter, softened
  1. Mix the flour, dried yeast, sugar and salt in the bowl of your mixer fitted with a dough hook. Warm the milk and 50 grams of the butter in the microwave on medium-high or in a pot over stove until the butter melts and the mixture lukewarm.
  2. Add the milk mixture into the flour mixture. Stir the mixture on low speed for 5 minutes until a rough dough comes together. Increase the speed and knead until the dough becomes smooth and elastic, about 5 -7 minutes.
  3. Shape the dough into a ball and place in a large greased bowl. Cover with a plastic film or a clean kitchen towel. Set aside in a warm place for one hour until it doubles in volume.
  4. Grease a jumbo 6-hole muffin pan with butter. Punch dough down. Turn out onto a lightly floured surface. Divide the dough into 3 even portions. Roll out each dough into a 40x15cm rectangle. Next time I will roll out to 60cmx15cm, so that you have more layers.
  5. Spread 50 grams of butter all over the rectangle. Starting with the shorter side, roll up the dough tightly. Slice the roll lengthwise into two. Roll each half up from the side that was cut so that you can see the layers of dough. Place it into the prepared muffin tin. Repeat the same process with the remaining pieces of dough. Cover with a kitchen towel and allow the dough to rise for 45 minutes.
  6. Preheat oven to 200C/400F. Bake for 25-30 minutes on the highest rack in the oven until golden brown. Serve, dusted with icing sugar, immediately.

Chocolate Curd Spelt Cookie Cups by Gordon Ramsay

Chocolate Curd Spelt Cookie Cups



© 2019 | http://angiesrecipes.blogspot.com

These nutty spelt cookie cups filled with smooth, creamy chocolate curd and topped with chocolate covered macadamia nuts make for a festive holiday dessert or a treat for any occasion. Instead of chocolate covered nuts, you can garnish them with some chantilly cream.

Dough Chocolate Curd
  • 150 g Refined spelt flour
    ©angiesrecipes
  • 30 g Ground hazelnut
  • 1/2 tsp Baking soda
  • Pinch of sea salt
  • 115 g Unsalted butter, softened
  • 150 g Raw sugar
  • 1 tsp Vanilla extract
  • 1 Large egg
  1. Preheat the oven to 190C/375F. Lightly grease a 24-hole mini muffin pan with a bit of melted butter.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together the spelt flour, baking soda and sea salt. Using an electric mixer, beat butter and raw sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the egg and vanilla. Gradually beat in the flour mixture until combined.
  3. Roll the dough into 1-inch balls and place in the muffin pan. Bake 10-12 minutes until golden brown.
  4. Remove from oven and use the back of a shot glass to press down into the center of each cookie ball, creating an indentation deep enough for the filling. Cool completely before removing from the pan.
  5. For the filling: Whisk egg yolks, evaporated milk, and raw sugar in a medium saucepan until combined. Add in butter and cook on medium heat, whisking constantly, until thick. Turn off the heat. Stir in vanilla extract and chopped chocolate until smooth and well-blended. The curd will firm up more when it’s cold.
  6. Fill the cookies cups with chocolate cream and top with a chocolate coated macadamia nuts and some sprinkles if desired. You won’t need the whole batch of chocolate filling. Save the rest in a jar in the fridge for up to about a week.

The Mill Loaf With Natural Leaven by Gordon Ramsay

The Mill Loaf With Natural Leaven








This almost no-knead bread recipe uses a mix of white, wholemeal, spelt flour and a rye sourdough starter, though the recipe could use any other flour or combination. The method is almost identical to the white leaven bread in The Handmade Loaf by Dan Lepard
angiesrecipes
, however the result is a bit different, with a dark, nutty sour taste to the crust and crumb thanks to the use pure rye sourdough starter.

  1. In a large bowl, whisk the leaven with the water. Add the flours and salt. Mix the ingredients together to form a sticky mass. Cover and leave 10-15 minutes to stand, to allow gliadin and glutenin proteins in the compound gluten to hydrate and bond.
  2. On a lightly oiled work surface, place the dough and knead briefly, 20 to 30 seconds will be enough. Shape the dough into a ball and put it back into the mixing bowl. Cover and refrigerate overnight. Next day, scrape the dough on to a lightly oiled work surface and pat it out to form a rectangle, roughly 40cm x 20cm. Fold one end, a third of the length, back to the centre. Fold the other end back over it, so we have 3 layers of dough, like folding puff pastry.
  3. Pat it out again and fold it once more. Leave one hour at room temperature and repeat. Leave another hour and repeat. The dough should be rising nicely. To check, slash the dough with a sharp knife. It is ready to shape once bubbles formed in the dough. Otherwise leave the dough a further hour to check again.
  4. Divide the dough into 3 smaller dough. Shape into balls on a lightly floured surface and allow to rest for 20 minutes. Form dough into a baton or round. Turn the shaped loaves into the floured baskets or tins with the seams up and leave them to finish rising. They’re ready for baking when doubled in size, about 3 hours.
  5. Preheat the oven to 220C/425F. Upturn the loaves on to floured baking trays and slash a few times across it. Bake for 50 to 60 minutes. Remove from oven and cool on a cooling wire.
