Strawberry and Almond Cruffins

Strawberry and Almond Cruffins

This is a mouthful of sweet deliciousness, a cross between a croissant and a muffin – they make a nice weekend breakfast treat!

Makes 6

Prep 30 mins

Cook 30 mins 

 

Ingredients:

Plain flour for dusting

350g tub of croissant pastry

1 egg, lightly beaten for glazing

For the filling

25g ground almonds

25g butter, melted

25g golden caster sugar

Zest of 1 lemon

300g Jubilee Selections Strawberries, hulled and roughly chopped

Icing sugar, sieved for dusting

You will need a 6-hole large, lightly greased muffin tin

 

Method:

1 Preheat the oven to 180C/160C/Gas 4. First make the filling: add the almonds, butter, sugar and lemon zest to a bowl and beat until combined. Put to one side.

2 Lightly dust a board with flour, remove pastry from tub, roll it out and cut into three rectangles, roll each one so it is a little larger. Dot or spread the almond mixture over each one then scatter over the strawberries. Roll each one up lengthways.

3 Now, using a sharp knife, slice lengthways down each section, then roll each of these up, rather like you would a pinwheel. Sit them in the muffin tin, brush all over with the egg wash and put in the oven to bake for 20-30 mins until risen and golden. If browning too quickly, cover loosely with foil. Remove from oven, leave to cool slightly then dust with icing sugar and remove from tin.

Tip: These are best eaten on day of baking
