The recipe, step by step

  1. 01

    Croissant Dough with a Modern Touch

    Blend the semi-candied citrus fruits into a paste. Mix the milk and yeast together. Combine the flour, salt, sugar, yeast, butter, vanilla powder, inverted sugar, candied citrus fruit paste, milk and eggs at speed 1 for 4 minutes. Then knead (in the traditional manner, with a dough hook) for 10 minutes at speed 2. Shape into a ball and leave to rise for 45 minutes at approximately 25°C before rolling out onto a 60x40 cm baking sheet then chill rapidly in the freezer. Refrigerate until the dough reaches 4°C. Flatten the butter to cover 2/3 of the rolled out dough. Fold into 3, covering the butter with the remaining
    dough. Give the dough a double turn, freeze for 10 minutes then refrigerate for 10 minutes to give it time to relax. Give a single turn then chill once more. The dough is now ready to use.
