Description

Never had a kouign amann? Never even heard of one? Haha, it’s pretty understandable. Kouign-amann is a specialty of the town of Douarnenez in Finistère, Brittany, the name comes from the Breton language words for “butter” and “cake.”
It’s considered croissant’s dense, sugary cousin.👭
It’s similar to a croissant but it is both denser and more caramelized. The kouign-amann has the addition of sugar sprinkled between the layers; in the oven, the butter-sugar mixture creates pockets of sweetness in the pastry’s soft, moist center, and a crispy caramel coating on the burnished exterior. Should it be enjoyed at breakfast or for dessert? The answer to that question is yes for both!

Please note that sablé mooncakes will now be made with yam filling (instead of white lotus). The handmade mochi centre remains the same!
