Recipe Ingredients for Homemade croissants

1000 g flour
80 g butter, at room temperature
2 tbsp milk powder
150 g caster sugar
1 tbsp salt
450 g water
25 g yeast
180 g butter

Recipe Directions for Homemade croissants

  1. Make the détrempe by mixing the flour, butter, dehydrated milk, sugar, fleur de sel and water together until a dough forms. Knead in the crumbled yeast, then keep on working the dough until very smooth. Place in a large bowl and allow to proof at room temperature for a couple of hours, or until just doubled in size.

  2. Push the air out, then roll into a 60×20cm square and proceed as explained above. Spread the butter onto the far left two thirds. Fold the right end over the middle part, then make the same with the left part. Film and chill.

  3. Next follow to tours doubles, with an hour-long refrigerator pause in between.

  4. Finally, give the dough a tour simple before rolling out thinly (1/2cm) and cutting triangles out. Make sure the triangles weigh around 180g before shaping them into neat croissant.

  5. Proof the croissants at room temperature until doubled in size and glaze by gently brushing a beaten egg white all over the dough. Bake in a preheated oven until golden.
