My Croissants


A good and sweet way to warm and comfort your heart !
Today I made these nice croissants for a mid-afternoon snack, and as a breakfast tomorrow! I embarked in this undertaking … I had never made croissants as they seemed too elaborate, but I found this recipe definitely simple!
I obtained nice and soft croissants, like brioches, and not too sweet.

250 gr of flour (as usual I put a little wholegrain as well, about 50g; the rest of it was half very strong canadian flour and half allpurpose flour)
125 gr of potatoes
25 gr of margarine
70 gr of brown sugar
15 gr of fresh yeast
soy milk, as needed
a pinch of vanilla powder

Boil the potatoes, let them cool and mash.
Dissolve the yeast in a finger of warm milk.
Mix all the ingredients for twenty minutes, adding milk if necessary.
Let the dough rise at least an hour and a half, then form the croissants, giving them the shape you prefer, and let them rise again for at least two hours.
Before putting them in the oven, brush the croissants with milk and sugar them. I’ve put some raisins on some of them, which is optional of course! My boyfriend loves the “braids” with raisins, so I made them for him!
Bake at 180 degrees for 15 minutes.
Enjoy them with a nice vegcappuccino for a great awakening with a smile! 🙂

Yesterday I had the famous test for the admission to the university for obstetrics, which has always been my dream, for which I have been preparing for such a long time; and, as some of you asked me, I wanted to tell you how it went.
Unfortunately, the test wasn’t easy at all, compared to the past years, therefore I don’t think it went well. I’m very down, in fact, as I’ve been studying so much. I’ll wait for the results .. but I feel I didnt’ make it … I got a little confused yesterday morning!
That’s why I made these croissants … as I often said, cooking gratifies me, makes me happy and keeps me busy. And what’s more comforting than the smell of freshly baked croissants?!? 😛
With this recipe, I say you goodbye for a week! I’m going 5 days in London from Saturday. I hope I’ll have fun, these are my holidays! Who has ever been in London and I reassures me about food? 🙂 Any advice? It’s a new city for me!

    I would have never thought that potatoes could be used fo preparing sweet treats! And that, furthermore, the dough would have come out light and soft. Well, that’s really good to know 🙂

    Hi Heidi, I’m sure you can replace the margarine with soy butter or any oil (better a light one, such as sunflower oil). Hope this helps

    Sounds wonderful! Didn’t you add a pinch of salt? I just made the dough and added a tiny bit of salt just because I thought I simply forgot to write it down but now I see your recipe doesn’t ask for salt at all

    Hi dazlious, yes, surely as in all sweet stuff a pinch of salt is recommended 🙂 you did well!
    Thanks for telling us!
