yeah definitely, nothing nearly as sweet as the ones we have over here. I've spent a great deal of time in france and have no recollection of a cheese sandwich made with a croissant….shit's always in a baguette or a different type of pastry.

Have any of you eaten a croissant? They aren't actually particularly sweet. The dough doesn't have much more sugar in it than say a crusty white loaf dough could have.

It does, croissants have way more sugar than the equivalent weight of bread.

croissants are something like 50g sugar to 500g four, bread is usually 1 teaspoon sugar to 500g flour, and thats only for the yeast.

The first result for crusty white bread loaf on google (a Delia) called for a tablespoon of sugar, a comparable croissant recipe called for 2, with more flour. You can't really put a particularly large amount of sugar into a dough as your yeast will do a mental (I know you like baking and know this already Nick), basically my point is the amount of sugar you can safely put in isn't really a huge amount.

Which place is that from themistake/where would mans recommend for this in London? I usually head down to this jellied eel and pie shop in Sutton, but I don't travel that way enough.
