London bakery Foxcroft & Ginger is launching the UK’s first Cruffin on 6 March 2015.
Following in the drool-inducing footsteps of the Cronut, the new croissant-muffin hybrid is set to be the next big pastry craze.
The Cruffins are made with the artisan bakery’s secret sourdough croissant mix, which is carefully hand-folded using the best French butter. Instead of using a traditional croissant mould, the pastries are then baked into a muffin shape, allowing for a generous space inside for fillings – no scrimping on the chocolate here! Dusted with cinnamon sugar, the Cruffins will be crunchy and flaky on the outside and wickedly soft and gooey on the inside.
Innovative flavours filling the Cruffins will include a rich chocolate ganache, a house-made 'Snickers' with nuts and caramel, custard, custard and raisin and custard and jam.
The Cruffins are priced from £2.70 each and are only available from artisan bakery and cafes Foxcroft & Ginger, located in Soho and Whitechapel, plus Old Street Underground Station from April 2015.
Foxcroft & Ginger offers a specialist range of hand-made baked goods, incredible cakes, delicious brunches, sourdough-based pizza, brilliant Bloody Marys and exquisite coffee. Every single ingredient is freshly made in-house, with original recipes lovingly tweaked to perfection.
F&G is the lovechild of dynamic husband and wife duo, Quintin and Georgina, who spent over ten years launching successful restaurants before taking the plunge with their own creation. Born from a desire to find a place where you can relax with good food and not feel pressured to pay up and move on, F&G is the place they dreamed of for years. It takes its name from Quintin’s family name, ‘Foxcroft’, and Georgina’s redhead pride! The original Berwick Street site has already developed a cult following, including the likes of Lily Cole, Anne Hathaway and Bill Nighy, thanks to its lovingly made, delicious offerings.
