Kouign Amann (pronounced [kwin a mãn]; pl. kouignoù-amann) is a Breton cake. It is a round crusty cake, originally made with bread dough (nowadays sometimes viennoiserie dough), containing layers of butter and sugar folded in, similar in fashion to puff pastry albeit with fewer layers. The cake is slowly baked until the butter puffs up the dough (resulting in the layered aspect of it) and the sugar caramelizes. The effect is similar to a muffin-shaped, caramelized croissant. Kouign Amann is a speciality of the town of Douarnenez in Finistère, Brittany, France where it originated around 1860. The invention is attributed to Yves-René Scordia (1828–1878). Comes frozen and easy to bake! Just butter and sugar a cupcake mold. Place Kouign Amann in the mold. Bake 375˚F/190˚C for approximately 19 minutes (ovens vary). Remove immediately from the mold, to avoid product form sticking.
