Dolcelatte Croughnuts are available at the Dolcelatte Cafe and Gourmet Bakeshop in Quezon Ave. We were very lucky to take home a box of croughnuts, each shop actually has their own spelling of it since the “cronut” has been patented by Dominique Ansel. The box of 6 croughnuts was made up of their new Chocolate and Fruity collection. Each piece was laid on a individual holder before they are arranged inside the paper lined box.
The Dolcelatte Croughnuts were only the 2nd I tried after being a bit disappointed by the ones from Wildflour. I think I had a not so good batch since it was oily and a bit heavy. A croughnut is basically a croissant shaped like a donut, the process is similar but the recipe is different.
The first croughnts I tried was the Lemon Meringue, it was late at night and I was finishing up stuff since we were set to leave for HK the next day. I have to say, the lemon meringue looked mighty pretty, with its torched peaks and lemon suace in between. Sugar was drizzled all over too to add another textural dimension. I sliced it in two and before I knew it, I had finished the whole thing. The tartness really helped to alleviate any cloying taste.
For breakfast the next day, Irene and I decided to have a croughnut each before leaving for the airport. I picked the Chocolate Macaroon, which had a coconut filling and topped with melted chocolate and meringue then sprinkled with dessicated coconut. I was expecting this to be quite sweet but in actuality it was just right with nice nutty taste.
The other variant we shared was the Raspberry Cream Cheese. There’s raspberry sauce slathered all over the top giving it a nice glazed look.
Here’s a picture to show you the cross section of the croughnut. Look at all that flaky layers sandwiching raspberry cream cheese. Irene also commented that it was enjoyable for her, paired with her hot cup of caffeine.
Dolcelatte Croughnuts are really good, I’d envision having the fruity ones again. The tartness of the filling and topping helps balance out all the heaviness of this indulgent dessert.
Dolcelatte Croughnuts are available for pre-order at least one day in advance only. Croughnuts cost P110 each or P660 a box. If you are not particular about the flavor, then you can just walk-in from Mondays to Saturdays, 3pm onwards and try your luck. Croughnuts are not available on Sundays. There are currently 11 variants to pick from.
Dolcelatte has also come out with some savory croughnuts that are available 2pm onward at the store.
Find Quezon Ave. a bit too far then you’ll be delighted since they are opening a store in SM Megamall very soon.
