Cronut fan? The new “Toffee Apple Crumble Cro-dough” is now availble at Rinkoff Bakery
The Rinkoff Bakery, who claim to be first bakery in London to make their own interpretation of a ‘Cronut’, launched a new variety to the lineup on Friday. The “Toffee Apple Crumble Cro-dough” is their fourth interpretation of the famous Dominique Ansel ‘Cronut’.
Three flavours of ‘cro-dough’ are now available from Rinkoff Bakeries. “Custard Cream”, “Raspberry Coolie” and the new “Toffee Apple Crumble” which replaces the discontinued “Fresh Cream” variety.
If you haven’t heard, a ‘cronut’ is a cross between a croissant and a donut, hence the term ‘cro-nut’. This hybrid pastry is now so popular that queues reportedly appear outside Dominique Ansel’s New York bakery at 05h00… for 08h00
The cronut craze has definitely hit London, but in a rather more sedate, British way. There is a buzz and clamour, but unlike New York, I haven’t heard reports of London pastry addicts camping outside bakeries several hours before opening. Ray Rinkoff, Jennifer’s father and a Master Baker, tells me that cronut-hunters generally start arriving at approx 07h30-08h30 at their Jubilee Street bakery.
