Ripping into a hot Bananas Foster croissant releases a cloud of steam which fills the air with the scent of bananas, rum, and caramel. Peek through the steam and you’ll see layers upon layers of irresistible, flaky pastry.
You can make Bananas Foster croissants with store-bought puff pastry dough, but if you have the time (I’d suggest setting aside a whole day), making croissant dough from scratch is a hugely rewarding endeavor. These Bananas Foster croissants are the first from-scratch croissants that I’ve ever made. I had the confidence to bake them after taking Craftsy’s Classic Croissants at Home. Every step of the process is explained in tremendous detail in the course so you’ll know just what you are doing. I had my laptop right across from me the entire time I was baking and literally baked along with the instructor, Colette Christian, until I veered off her path to create my Bananas Foster variation.
