Well this is the 3rd attempt I had ever made to make a hybrid of croissant pastry with cinnamon rolls in a ketofied way, which unfortunately always fails before

And yesterday I finally succeed …Eurekaaaa…LOL

The trick was using a very cold water for making the croissant dough, so the yeast will be suspended on the leavening action without having to refrigerate many time between each folding process, just like what bakers did on making croissant. Coz if the yeast leaven too soon then the dough will became to soft to be rolled and tear easily

And to simplify the flaky effect, I suspend the butter liquidity by mixing it with the Keto-Flour as the coagulator and using 1 : 1 ratio of Butter : Keto-Flour, so the butter will still bring the flakes comes out between layers after bake, and dries out the moisture from the thin layers of dough to get the crispness

Then another trick to simplify the rolling, I use a Pasta Machine to roll this dough into a pasta sheet, so that I won’t need to roll the dough many time between folding. And just spread the pastry batter over the rolled sheet and fold it like an envelopes (4 – 5 folds) without having to worry for the leaking butter just like on the traditional way of making croissant dough

Damn.. I finally nailed this one
So I’m naming this Keto-Bread

* Assemble
On a silicone pad, spread the rolled dough with the pastry batter evenly

Make 3 – 4 fold from one side to the other end of the rolled dough, then fold one more time to the opposite direction (just like closing a book)

Roll the dough at one direction to flatten and seaming the pastry batter within.

Brush the butter over the rolled dough, then sprinkle cinnamon powder and sucralose evenly

Roll the dough into a log and make a seam at the end by pinching it to combines

Repeat the procedure with the rest of the rolled dough until 6 Crocinnabuns are formed
