Dutch Crunch Update: We Have a Matcha Dutch Crunch

May 24, 2016

Last week, I learned how to Dutch Crunch everything (okay, I'm still limited to bread—but furniture: you're next!). And then I pleaded with all of you talented bakers out there. (Yep, going to quote myself right now.)

Someone please make a chocolate loaf with a matcha crackle—I promise you'll get a million likes on Instagram!

And Bella Karragiannidis (check out her blog, ful-filled) did it! She really did it! She made a chocolate Dutch crunch over matcha milk bread rolls (this is the opposite of, but much better than, what I initially requested).

Bella went above and beyond my crazy ask: She shaped her rolls like the little turtles their topping evokes. (And it's timely, too: May 23 was World Turtle Day.)

Thanks for making this ridiculous dream come true, Bella. We bet those rolls—black sesame seed eyes and all—are as delicious as they are beautiful.

What Dutch Crunch flavor combination do you want to see next? I can't make any promises for Bella but...

I used to work at Food52. I'm probably the person who picked all of the cookie dough out of the cookie dough ice cream.
