How to make Kouign Amaan with Orange Honey Butter

  1. To make the flavoured butter, beat the softened butter well and add the honey and orange zest . Beat until well combined . Spread this on parchment or foil to a square about 7 x 7 inch . Chill for atleast two hours.
  2. To make the dough , first activate the yeast by mixing the yeast with the warm water and sugar . It should turn frothy in few minutes.
  3. Whisk the flour and salt together. To this add the yeast mixture and melted butter.
  4. Using a mixer or your hands , bring together to form a dough and knead for few minutes until smooth.
  5. In a lightly oiled bowl, let this dough rest in a warm place for an hour or until doubled.
  6. Beat the air out of the dough and roll into a square about 9 x 9 inch . Place the butter block so that the corners of the butter block are centred on the sides of the dough. Fold the sides over the centre , like an envelope.
  7. Roll this into a rectangle about 12 x 6 inches or so . Fold the lower third onto the middle third and the upper third over the middle third (like a letter). Wrap in cling wrap and chill for 30 minutes.
  8. Repeat this process twice (three times total) , chilling 30 minutes after each time.
  9. Again roll the dough to a rectangle about 12 x 6 inches , sprinkle most of the sugar on top . Again fold the lower third onto the middle third and the upper third onto the middle third.
  10. Roll this into a rectangle about 14 x 8 inches or so , sprinkle some sugar and divide into twelve equal parts
  11. Bring together the corners of each square of dough, so that they meet in the middle like a clover. Place in the cavity of a muffin tin. Repeat with all squares , sprinkle with sugar and rest for 30 minutes.
  12. Meanwhile preheat oven to 220 C/ 425 F .
  13. Bake for 30-40 minutes until golden brown. If you think its browning too fast , just cover with aluminium foil.
  14. Cool for two-three minutes and remove the pastries from the muffin tin, or they ll stick.

My Tip:

These are best eaten warm!
