Flaky Pandan Croissant @ 亚洲风味香兰牛角酥面包

Did you see that ??? Gosh, such a beauty. Love the fluffy look of the layers and the aroma is stunning ! Definitely another winner after the green tea danish loaf project.

I actually made both croissant as well as danish loaf. They look awesome ! I double up the original recipe which will gives you two 4x8" danish loaves or 8 large croissants or 16 medium size croissants. So, here's what I did.

Ingredients for croissant dough :
230gm   bread flour
80gm     cake flour
16gm    milk powder
1/2 tspn  salt
1-1/2 TB  sugar
1 tspn  instant yeast
2 small eggs (about 85gm)
1 tspn  pandan paste
40ml   milk
80ml   water
40gm  cold butter, chopped

*230gm  cold butter block 5 x 5" square

Egg glazing : 1 egg yolk mix with 1 tspn milk

Method :
(1) combine all ingredients (except butter)  into a big bowl and stir to form a soft dough then add in butter continue kneading till everything well cooperated.
(2) shape dough into a ball then keep it into a plastic bag and slightly flatten it  Keep refrigerated for overnight or at least for 8 hours.
(3) for butter, weight the butter then cut into 6 portions, arrange butter into a small plastic bag which about 4 to 5" big then press to flatten it. Keep refrigerated till set.
(4) for the folding & laminating process, please refer here.
(5) flatten dough with the size about 10x20" then divide into 4 equal portions. Then cut each portions into two as picture shown above to form a triangle shape.And make a small cut to mark the center on each triangle.

. (6) pick one triangle dough and gently pull to stretch the dough with your other hand then roll up dough from the flat end to the pointing end to form the croissant. Finally, let to proof for 2 hours on the baking tray lined with parchment paper.

(7) when its ready, brush the top with egg glazing then bake at preheated oven 180-185'C for about 20 minutes or till golden brown. Of course, danish loaf needs long baking time compare to croissant.

See, how it turns out ! Fluffy.... puffy.... flaky..... Oh boy, just can't wait to take a bite !

And this is the best moment I'm waiting for.....the cut ! Another satisfying project. I'm dancing... I am dancing.... Hope you guys will love it too. Enjoy ! And don't forget about the giveaway as well. Good Luck !
