Blueberry Lemon Cronuts
I love the sight of it. I love delicious combinations of flavors. Lemon and blueberries are some of my favorite flavor combinations.
These Blueberry Lemon Cronuts may be one of the most delicious blueberry lemon-baked delicacies I have ever tasted.
What is A Cronut
The Cronut was introduced on May 10, 2013, at Ansel’s bakery, Dominique Ansel Bakery, in New York’s Soho neighborhood. On the same night, a blogger from Grub Street, the online restaurant blog from New York magazine, reported on the new pastry. The post resulted in much interest and online circulation, and by the third day, a line of over 100 people had formed outside the shop to buy it. Leading to the Cronut being named by TIME magazine as one of the best “extremely fun” inventions of 2013. Wikipedia

Do You Fry Cronuts
You will find some recipes to fry them Cronuts. I prefer to bake mine for a light and airy texture.
It also helps eliminate excess grease you would have from frying.
The base of this recipe is puffed pastry. Now if you want you can make your own puff pastry. I would think that could elevate the flavor even more.
Or if you are like me, I went straight to the freezer section at the grocery store and picked it up. I enjoy the store bought puff pastry so it works great for me, and speeds up the process.
Can You Do Different Flavors of Cronuts
Absolutely! I love the refreshing blend of blueberries and lemon. But if you want to try other flavor combinations go right ahead.
You will want to cook the fresh fruit just like this recipe to add it in as the filling. Then if you don’t want lemon to create a simple glaze to put on top.
How to Store Lemon Blueberry Cronuts
Because of the fruit filling in these, I recommend storing them in the refrigerator. It will help extend the shelf life.
This breakfast recipe is best when served warm and fresh. The texture will change once it cools down and is refrigerated. I still highly recommend this recipe.
When to Serve Blueberry Lemon Cronuts
When is the wrong time for a delightful cronut? Breakfast, brunch, mid-day snack, or even a midnight dessert. This recipe is dynamite no matter the time of day. It also offers an elegant presentation value for guests.
