Have you ever had bostock? It is a pastry made with enriched bread and frangipane– think toast topped with almond croissant filling. I had it for the first time about a year and a half ago when I saw it on a menu at a trendy bakery. I didn’t recognize the name and was intrigued. When I tried it, I was surprised by its lovely texture and delicate flavor.
Bostock is made using day old bread, typically bread in the brioche family which is enriched with egg and butter. I love recipes that calls for day old bread because I usually make more bread than I can finish. Day old bread recipes like this transforms them in the loveliest way!
This is a tasty, easy Black Sesame Bostock recipe takes only 25 minutes to make. The frangipane can be made in advance and can be stored in the fridge for up to a week, further streamlining the process. The recipe also works well made in a toaster oven or air fryer, for those days cooking for one. So, take your toast game to the next level by making some bostock!
