July’s Kitchen of the Month is Aparna of My Diverse Kitchen. Aparna chose Cruffins as our challenge recipe. Cruffins are supposedly a hybrid of croissants and muffins, but, to me, their texture was more like a dinner roll.
First set of cruffins was a lemon-flavored, yeast-based bread. They were very tasty, especially when rolled in lemon sugar while they were still warm. These were the most successful.
Second set of cruffins, which were actually baked before the first set, were sourdough chocolate cruffins. No yeast involved here, so sadly, there was negligible movement as well, even though the starter was used right at its peak, and the dough was given ample time to rise. Guess I’m just a yeast lover at heart.
Check out Aparna’s cruffins, and the recipe she used. Hers are gorgeous! Also, stop by to see how the other Babe’s fared – they made some mighty fine-looking cruffins.
