Orange Marmalade & Almond Bostock

Making bostock is one of my favorite ways to transform stale enriched bread into a sweet treat. It is like a cross between toast and almond croissant and is super easy to make. I posted the Black Sesame Bostock recipe a few weeks ago, which is a yummy milky, sweet and nutty treat. It hits the spot when I am looking for something richer and sweet, but when I am looking for something more bright and delicate, orange and almond is the combination I go for.

Orange Marmalade & Almond Bostock
