Cinnamon & brown sugar injeolmi ‘croffles’ now available at BreadTalk for S$2.20

BreadTalk has moved fast to jump on the croffle trend — a pastry that combines a waffle and a croissant to delicious ends.

However, it’s not a croffle per se at the local bakery chain (there’s no grid texture).

Instead, it’s a croffle-inspired rendition, which the bakery calls a, um, korissant.

The korissant is made by pressing a croissant on a flat grill for a crispier texture, and comes in three flavours:

Cinnamon, S$2.20

Brown Sugar Injeolmi, S$2.20

Kimcheese, S$3

The cinnamon version is straightforward, but good enough to be devoured in one sitting.

The Brown Sugar Injeolmi (injeolmi = roasted soybean powder) version is dusted with brown sugar and injeolmi powder, with a soybean custard cream centre.

Finally, the savoury Kimcheese korissant features kimchi inside, a bottom crust of gouda and mozzarella cheese, and kimchi seasoning on top.

An ongoing promotion nets you one free korissant with every five purchased.
