As fusion baked goods go, the Cronut is definitely up there. And as it turns the grand old age of four this weekend, Dominique Ansel Bakery, which made the original Cronut, is giving away free Cronut holes – y'know, the bit from the middle of a Cronut. It's not the whole hog, but it's a delicious bite-sized treat, nonetheless.
Get yourself down to the Belgravia bakery on May 13, and if Happy Birthday is playing while you're in store then they'll be dishing out free Cronut holes. Choose from the first ever flavour rose vanilla, which was launched in New York, or the first ever flavours from the London bakery – butterscotch cocoa nib. Or if you're feeling adventurous, go for the hokkaido milk honey ganache and yuzu lemon curd from Tokyo.
Dominique Ansel Bakery London is at 17-21 Elizabeth Street, SW1W 9RP.
