Admittedly, I went over to Meatmen for some fantastic Father’s Day steaks, but some odd compulsion drove me to Bakery Brera to have a gander at what the hype was all about. I truly lucked out on that day, as there was an abundance all varieties of their famous cruffins still for sale at 6 pm. I was told that they’d anticipated an insane demand for these cruffins due to it being Father’s Day, but said demand never materialized.

Well, everyone else’s loss is my gain, and after heating up this Nutty Salted Caramel Cruffin, I can start to see why there’s a hot fuss over these flaky boys. Croissant pastry is moulded into the form of a muffin before getting impregnated with a healthy amount of caramel.

The end product is fabulously flaky while still retaining that luxurious, buttery softness inside. Once you chomp your way to the centre, the caramel hidden deep inside is there to lavish your tongue with sweet, sweet sugary love. The soft dough was absolutely addictive, and when fused with the sweetness of the caramel and the sugar studding the flaky pastry exterior, these cruffins were certainly charming.

However, it’s not all hunky dory. I was wondering where the nuts in the ‘nutty’ were, as aside from the small smattering of crushed nuts on the outside, the nuts were missing. They should’ve put some chunky nuts into the centre with the caramel to put the nut back into nutty, and so that when people ask about deez nuts, they can confidently say that they gottem.

At $4.50, it’s not that worth it, but if you’re a sucker for competently crafted croissants moulded into muffins and stuffed with various spiffy sweets, then Bakery Brera will be taking all your money straight outta your wallet.
