Transcript for Cronut Creator Reveals How to Make Secret Recipe at Home
How does a pastry go viral? Well, if you're the inventor of the cronut, it starts with a whole lot of butter. The rest has been secret until now. ABC's Sara Haynes got a hands on demonstration and the enviable job of trying out the results. Reporter: It's no surprise people go nuts for cronuts. The $5 connectifection that's gone viral. People lining up overnight just to snag a maximum of two of these elite treats. All right. Reporter: But what if we told you you didn't have to stand on that crazy long line? Now, in his new book, the secret recipe, the creator is revealing his special at-home recipe for all you dough-loving disciples. What do you hope people get from this cookbook. I hope people get inspired. It's not just following a recipe. Sometimes you take a recipe that you have from your mom, from your grandma and you turn it into yours. Reporter: It's not the exact same recipe but people can make it at home. I wanted to make sure everybody could do it at home with ingredients you can find in a grocery shop. Reporter: This is no cake walk. It takes three days to create. Day one is all about making the dough. I recognize that one. She's my soul sister. Fast forward to day two where we roll out, then laminate the dough. A process where butter is folded in. Dough, butter, dough. And finally on day three, it's time to cut the dough. After letting it rest for two hours in a warm setting, we're ready to fry. Drop the spatula moment. Then fill, sugar and glaze. For "Nightline," I'm Sara Haynes in New York. Reporte I did a really good job. Good job.
