Croissants ala BBB
The Bread Baking Babes are in town again. This time it is Katie from Thyme for Cooking in France who chose the theme and therefore is the Kitchen Babe of the Month.
She challenged her fellow babes with… yes you guess it! – Croissants!
I can tell you it is worth to wander around and visit the fabulous Babes and their croissants. Mmmmmmh! Mouthwatering! Delicious!
I am always a bit in worry when it comes to bake things that have to be formed nicely and have to stay that way through proofing and baking… but as you can see from thr pics above the dough was wonderful to work with did not fail me.
The only exception – as always: I used spelt flour instead of wheat and did two more turns. As it was about 11 pm yesterday when I was done with the turns I put the dough in the fridge and finished making the croissants this morning 6 am.
I did three different versions:
Plain croissants, Pain au Chocolate (with dark mint chocolate) and ones with incorporated cinnamon (especially for Mrs Q. who loves cinnamon but does not fancy croissants…)
I cut the rising time a bit knowing that my dough with spelt flour would not hold the shape as long as the wheat versions.
I am pretty pleased with the layers tho:
Vive la croissant! :)
