A couple of months prior we were seeing family in Santa Barbara when FishPapa and I got away for an espresso date at Peets. I was feeling wild and requested a cake, something I won’t ever do. We chose to get two distinct ones: a maple scone and an almond croissant, and afterward split them. I’d never had an almond croissant, in all honesty, and I was interested.

Indeed, we got to talking. Indeed, he did. I got to eating. That almond croissant was astounding! At the end of the day, truly, probably the best thing I at any point ate.

Eventually, he didn’t get a chomp of the croissant. What’s more, the maple scone was really hopeless. My unfortunate spouse was doubly cheated. It turned into the joke of our excursion — that I swindled him out of a portion of an almond croissant. Despite the fact that I later got him a whole almond danish somewhere else, we actually snicker about what an almond croissant cheat I am.

I did some exploration about almond croissants, in light of the fact that, as a matter of fact, I might want to make them an ordinary event around here. Turns out almond croissants are many times a bread shop’s method for spending old customary croissants. Who knew?

I concluded I needed something less expensive and simpler than croissants, however with a portion of a similar yummy flavor and surface, so I began researching. I found Bostock, a French cake I’d never known about. It’s fundamentally made of day-old brioche, brushed in an almond syrup, slathered in tough situation, and canvassed in an almond glue blend, finished off with cut almonds and afterward heated.

I quickly set to testing. Brioche is certainly not a simple track down around here, and I would truly not liked to go through such countless strides of conventional Bostock. While I can’t in fact call this a Bostock recipe, it’s most certainly a less complex, more reasonable variant of the delightful almond cake.

We lived it up testing this recipe! I subbed dry bread or toast for the brioche, testing French, Italian, and entire wheat sandwich bread. Of the breads, we favored the soft “Italian” sandwich bread. It’s more thickly cut than certain breads and is typically somewhat better. French bread was excessively dry thick for our inclinations. The entire wheat bread tasted perfect, with just the right amount of better bowed.

I haven’t tried it with gluten free bread, yet I’d very much want to hear how that goes for you assuming you do. You’ll have to substitute a gf baking mix for the cake flour.

I avoided the almond syrup and made the jam discretionary in light of the fact that a few testers cherished it with jam and some favored it without. We utilized custom made strawberry jam, business strawberry spread, lemon curd, fig margarine, and Nutella. FishPapa and I both favored it jam-less, yet the children and my mother favored it with a spread of some sort. My father cherished it all over.

I made an almond cream from almond flour rather than the more costly almond glue. The cream and the cut almonds bring that almond croissant flavor to the recipe, making it marvelous without being excessively tedious and costly.
