Love Ya Croissant

Croissant is my kind of food. Give it to me anytime and I’ll chow it down with a smiling face all the way to the moon! My earliest encounter with yummy croissants were the ones from Delifrance with thick slab of tuna inside. One bite and I was hooked for life!

Homemade Croissant

In December last year, my sis attempted in her very first homemade croissant. Looking at her working the pastry make me realize you need patience and muscles for it. Rolling, folding, the waiting and then rolling and folding again and again all that while you make sure the butter is soft and cold. Sometimes it’ll make you jump up and down because you realize the butter is melting and you have to return it to the fridge. Hahaha *Malaysia’s weather.

The hard work paid off really well. Smell of perfumey butter during baking makes you wonder whether you’re still in your home or whether you’re in a faraway land, at a Parisan boulangerie?

Just eat it like this is great too. It’s very buttery and flaky. The quality is the same with Delifrance if I may say so if not better. Just that the looks are a bit off. Haha Not bad for her first attempt right? I’ll show the step-by-step if we ever make them again. Promise.

How I enjoyed my sis’ homemade croissant?

Homemade Tuna Croissant
Tuna croissant of course with a cup of hot Milo. Yums! Hot chocolate will do too. There’s nothing better than this. πŸ™‚ This last photo ain’t great as I was concentrating on how many pieces of tuna croissant I will eat that day! πŸ˜› Hence the lazy snapshot.

p/s: I’m not really into chocolatines/pain au chocolat although I’m a chocolate lover. Maybe coz I haven’t found the perfect one yet.

      Hehe. Will put a special post with step-by-step guide in the future if we make them again. I think this will need 4 hands. 2 for making croissant and 2 for snapping pictures. Thing is if we do this on a rainy day, it’ll help the croissant but not my photos as I need natural light for it. LOL Maybe I need to make a makeshift kitchen in my air-cond living hall!

      Well, I don’t have the guts to make bread yet. πŸ˜›

    Your croissants look gorgeous, they browned perfectly! I hope you enjoyed the process, they are quite fun to make, aren’t they? And I completely agree, their buttery aroma is completely intoxicating πŸ™‚

      Hi Emilia, I love the browning of these croissants as well. They have this very rustic look. I definitely think my sis had a lot of fun making it albeit the hard work involved. I should not swear at the high price of a croissant if I ever sees one. They’re totally worth the effort put in.
