IMG_9142as zoe rightly put it, this “cheat” version (which omits the lamination process) yields pretty much a croissant..
except that it doesn’t have that desired flaky interior
regardless, it truly makes baking croissants much easier..
i gave these away to the migrant community.. and the feedback was “marvellous”!
do give it a go..
please refer to this link for traditional croissant recipe
事先说明。。因这食谱不使用传统可颂制作方式
所以做出来的效果木有您所渴望一口咬下去有那脆脆的口感
但,大致上,这简易版的牛角包还真是另人回味。。
我将牛角包送给了打工子弟们当早点。。大家都大赞“好吃”呀!
试试哈!
想制作传统可颂,请参考此mini croissant

食材(可做 8-10个小形或 6个大形可颂)

IMG_9146强力面包粉 250克
无盐黄油 (冷)150克,切丁
温奶 120毫升
白糖 50克
即溶干酵母 7克
盐 1/2小匙

收尾
蛋黄 1颗+1大匙牛奶(混合)

做法
*其实这简易版食谱无需将面团擀得那么幸苦~ 但很多网友都问我有木有三折图解,所以借此机会老老实实拍出一套哈。简易发,可参考原食谱链接(见上)

IMG_9143-牛奶加热至人体温度。加入糖和酵母、拌匀。让其静置至牛奶冷却并发泡

-面粉和盐放入容器混合、加入黄油丁块儿(切记,黄油必须是冷的)。运用搅拌器配件将面粉和黄油略拌匀,直到外观似面包糠

-倒入冷却的牛奶。用勺子将面团混合至成团(面团有点沾手)。千万不可过度搅拌~和面既可

-将面团挪至撒了面粉的案板上,轻柔数下(无需过度搅拌。成团既可)、形成四方形的面团。用保鲜膜裹上、冷冻三十分钟或冷藏自少两小时(我将面团冷藏两小时 ~趁机锻炼去)

(a) 案板和擀面杖撒上面粉,将面团略擀成长方形
注:首次擀开,面团会有少些开裂的现象~别惊慌
正常。。再往下擀和折叠,面团就越来越好使了

IMG_9131(b) 上下对摺(也称三折)

IMG_9132(c) 面团逆时方向转 90度
再次上下擀平(这张拍漏了。。oops)

IMG_9133(d) 再次对摺(这就完成了两次三折)

IMG_9134将面团翻面、封口朝下(此时,我将面团再次冷藏了一小时;之后再继续操作剩余的三折步骤)
以上(a) 至 (d) 步骤重复多三次(共五次)

IMG_9135最后一次对摺后,将面团稍微撒上面粉,裹上两层保鲜膜、冷藏自少两小时(隔夜冷藏最佳)

IMG_9136将面团取出、擀成 4毫米(4mm) 厚的面皮

IMG_9137用刀子修饰边缘

IMG_9138面皮分割成长 30厘米、宽 8厘米的三角形。每个三角形正中央切道小缝。多余的面团可重叠、擀出、并重新整形

IMG_9139在每个三角处稍微拉松后(可别使劲)

IMG_9140将面皮卷起、尖处朝下

IMG_9141摆放在铺上烘焙纸的烤盘,并用保鲜膜将可颂轻轻盖上,室温发酵三小时
虽说三小时,但要您家温度较高(尤其是住在东南亚的朋友👬),而导致面团回温并发酵得快,我建议您“见机行事”
有必要,提前烘焙。要不然,可颂一送入烤箱因高温使黄油即滑就不好了

-烤箱预热至 230摄氏度。可颂刷上蛋液,送入烤箱烤 10 分钟或至上色后,降温至 190摄氏度继续烤 5-10分钟

-挪至冷却架子进行冷却

Personal notes/温馨小贴士:

IMG_9148– my room temperature was 25 degrees C when proofing the croissant
我家室温在发酵可颂时为 25摄氏度

– i baked my croissants for 230 degrees C for 6 mins, then tented it with foil immediately (as it browned really quickly) and turned down the temperature to 190 degrees C and baked for another 6 mins
我的可颂用了 230摄氏度烤了 6分钟,立马盖上锡纸(上色得太快了)并降温至 190摄氏度,继续烤了 6分钟

  • Aunty Young (June 12, 2015)

    我也一见钟情,谢谢你的步骤图,有机会希望我也来做做。

  • chloe (June 13, 2015)

    Hi Victoria. Can I replace the active dry yeast with instant yeast and of OK is the amount the same. Thanks . these croissants look so good.

    • Victoria Bakes (June 13, 2015)

      Hi Chloe, my opinion is u can and reduce the instant dry yeast by 20 percent, n skip the activation of yeast in the milk.

      But i suggest that this question be directed to zoe at her blog directly as the recipe was adapted from her. I may not be right in this instance.

  • chloe (June 14, 2015)

    Thanks Victoria. I guess I should follow both you and Zoe and use active dry yeast just to be safe and besides this is challenging for me. Thanks.

  • lena (June 14, 2015)

    hi victoria, i just saw zoe\’s post on this moment ago..yes, definately much more easier and no messy work and yet be able to produce these delicious wonderful looking croissants!

  • Zoe (@bake4happykids) (June 15, 2015)

    Hi Victoria,

    I\’m very happy to see that you have baked and liked these no-so-fussy croissants. \”No meltdown or tears\” shaping these, right??? 😀

    Zoe

  • Joyce, Kitchen Flavours (June 19, 2015)

    Hi Victoria,
    Lovely croissants! Definitely fuss-free and \”frustration-free\”! I love the look of the really brown crust!
    Thanks for baking along with us!

  • Wendy (August 19, 2016)

    Hi Victoria, I saw an earlier post on steam milo nestum cake which I am very interested to try. There is no mention of when/how to combine the butter mixture with the egg and sugar mixture. The post is in Nov 2015

    • Victoria (August 19, 2016)

      Wendy hi, thanks for looking out. I have updated the instructions accordingly

      • Wendy (August 22, 2016)

        Thank you Victoria.
