A dessert "like at home" are the classic jam croissants made more quickly or with the care and attention of our grandmothers, since childhood. And if you like the version of fluffy fasting croissants, with nuts, chocolate, poppy seeds or shit, it can be easily adapted with croissants with the filling you like best.
An advantage of these fluffy croissants is the leavened dough that leads to their "swelling" and to the preservation of the texture, because they will have slightly larger dimensions than those tender croissants powdered with a lot of sugar. The dough will look like cake and will be malleable.
To start preparing fluffy croissants in the bread machine, you will first put those wet ingredients for the dough, then introduce the dry ones and choose the program that kneads and leavenes. But you can obviously make a hand-kneaded dough for fluffy croissants with jam.
Start the recipe for croissants with jam by adding in a bowl the flour, salt and dry yeast, in the middle adding a warm milk in which you have already put the sugar and eggs mixed with a fork. Add a little butter and knead with your hands until the croissant dough with jam, the traditional recipe, does not stick.If you use gluten-free flour, it may not grow as much, although it should keep its texture, the steps remaining the same.
Leave the dough of fluffy croissants with jam to rise for an hour or until the volume doubles, then turn over on the worktop given with flour and spread, dividing into two sheets of dough. These will be separated, in turn, into eight equal "triangles" at the base of which will be placed a teaspoon of filling for fluffy homemade croissants. Twist the horn dough with chocolate or jam from this base to the top, keeping the end under the weight of the croissant. Put them on a tray on which you put baking paper, leaving a little distance between them because you let them rise for another 30 minutes, before putting them in the oven.
The recipe for fluffy croissants involves mixing the yolks with milk and anointing the croissants to brown them nicely on top. Put these fluffy jam croissants in the preheated oven, leaving the temperature at 180 degrees for up to 20 minutes, so that they can brown nicely. After removing, leave the beautiful croissants with fasting or sweet jam to cool in the respective tray, after which they can be consumed or stored in containers to keep their fragility.
You can adapt the recipe for chocolate croissants, fluffy croissants with walnuts or simple fluffy croissants with butter, without filling or with pastry cream. If you want fasting croissants, you will give up eggs, butter and milk and replace them with water and vegetable margarine or sunflower oil.
And if you want inspiration regarding the consumption of these fluffy croissants with chocolate, jam or other creams, although we do not think that such an unpleasant situation would arise, find out that they go very well with a glass of milk, a hot chocolate, a coffee. or a morning tea, for example.
