Have Your Coffee and Danish All in One
Coffee and Danish lovers rejoice. Paris Baguette has you covered with their new all-in-one Coffee-Danish ($2.50). The lightly sweetened pastry combines an almond flour dough and a thick coffee coating. As soon as you open the wrapper it's as if a cup of fresh-brewed coffee appeared right on the table next to you.
Unlike an American-style coffee cake, the crust on this pastry doesn't have much sugar—it's more akin to a dehydrated coffee pastry cream. Underneath that crust is a moist, almost wet, brioche-style dough, a softness achieved through a healthy dose of butter in the recipe. Hello, new breakfast routine.
