Kouign Amann

Daring Kitchen
April 2016

A kouign amann (prounounced “kwee-amahn”) is a round crusty pastry that originated in Brittany in roughly 1860. It is made with a bread dough that is laminated (think of a croissant or puff pastry) and then sprinkled with sugar before being cut into squares and baked in muffin tins. I became aware of this morning pastry as I watched an episode of The Great British Bake Off and was keenly interested in trying it simply because I’d never heard of it before and really, you can’t go wrong with layers of dough, butter, and sugar … right??

Hi. I’m Julianna from Ohio. I’ve participate in the DBC off and on since 2009. When Rachael and Sawsan put out the call for hosts I thought it was about time I do my part. I have enjoyed so many challenges. I bring you the Stroopwafel.
