Recently it has become very fashionable to make cruffins for Easter. The dough for these pastries is a cross between croissants and muffins. It turns out to be very tasty and aesthetically pleasing if you add a lot of candied fruits and dried fruits.

The idea of making fluffy Easter cruffins was published on the Instagram page of food blogger Victoria with the nickname viktoria__cooking. You just need to sprinkle powder on top. No need to make white fondant.

6. Add sifted flour in several stages and mix first with a whisk and then knead on the surface with your hands.

7. Grease your hands with vegetable oil so that the dough sticks less to your hands and kneads better. At first, it will be very sticky and fall apart, but be patient. It will become very elastic after a while. Knead by hand for 15 minutes. You can also use a planetary mixer.
