  1. Mix all of the pre-ferment ingredients briefly into a cool, medium-stiff dough for the croissant dough.
  2. Then rest and chill for 30 minutes in a fridge.
  3. Add SENNA Melange+ Platte and then fold the dough three times into four layers.
  4. Finally, roll out the croissant dough until 3 mm thick, moisten and fold over to produce 3 layers of dough.
  5. Cut out circles in the shape of a donut with pastry cutters (diameter of 9 cm and 3 cm). Fry these rings on both sides in SENNA Goldfritter until golden brown.
  6. To make the vanilla cream, beat SENNA Schlagcreme for three minutes before adding SENNA Vanille Dessertsauce and beating for a further three minutes.
  7. To finish the baked croissant donuts, fill with vanilla cream (inject equal amounts). Then dredge in sugar or finish with SENNA Fondagel as well as coloured nonpareils.
  8. SENNA Dekorglasur hell and Dekorglasur dunkel are also ideal for decorating the croissant donuts.

Our tip
