Maple Cronut

Maple cronut
20 portions


  • 700g strong bread flour
  • 300g plain flour
  • 50g maple sugar
  • 20g salt
  • 14g dried yeast
  • 80g butter
  • 40ml maple syrup (preferably amber for its rich taste)
  • 420ml Water
  • 500g butter for the lamination


To make the dough

  1. In a mixer bowl put all the ingredients together and with the hook, mix the dough.
  2. 1st speed for 2 minutes then, 3rd speed for 6 minutes.
  3. Roll the dough onto a baking tray then keep it in the fridge for 5 hours.

To laminate the dough

  1. Both components (butter and dough) need to be pliable for this recipe to work. Cool but pliable.
  2. As long as they are both cold and also pliable, they roll out easily while still maintaining separate layers.
  3. Here we will be rolling out and folding the dough twice to create 25 dough and butter layers. Folding the dough is how you laminate it to create the beautiful, flaky layers.
  4. The first fold will be a single fold that will create nine dough and butter layers.
  5. Roll the dough and fold it in three.
  6. Repeat this process twice.
  7. Roll and cut the dough with donut shape cutter (1cm thick).
  8. Proof the donuts in a warm place (25c) for about 1 hour.
  9. Then deep fry until you get a nice golden colour.

To make the maple glaze

  1. Mix one cup of maple sugar with 2 tablespoons of water (add more water if needed) then with a piping bag or a spoon, glaze the top of the cronut.
Cronuts (a cross between a croissant and a donut!) are a delightfully sweet and puffy pastry. Use this maple-infused cronut recipe to wow your guests!

Chef’s tip: When you’re rolling out the dough and folding it, it’s very important that the dough is always chilled. It’s also important that the dough rests for at least 2 hours between rolling out stages.

More about maple

The colour and flavour of maple syrup changes in subtle ways during the seasonal harvest

At the start of the sugaring season, the syrup is generally clear, with a light, sweet taste. It becomes darker with a caramelised flavour as the season progresses throughout the spring.

An unopened can of maple syrup keeps for many years

Once the can is opened, syrup should be kept in an airtight container in a cool place.

Maple spread doesn't contain any butter or dairy products

Like all 100% pure maple products, maple spread comes from the sap of the maple tree that’s all.
