In a world where hybrid breakfast pastries such as the duffin, the cronut, the cragel, and the doughscuit have replaced mere pancakes among hip and trendy people who like spending their early mornings in a queue, the bronuffin was waiting to happen.
The bronuffin is a biscuit-donut-muffin hybrid that is named for the moment when one wants to make exciting breakfast pastries but has neither milk nor eggs in the house, so one says, “Bro, I got nuffin’.” It requires beer and jam. If your refrigerator is down to the point of containing nothing but retro-style pop and sriracha, make substitutions at your own risk.
Preheat the oven to 400 because 400 is a nice, round number. For music, I focused my eyes on Spotify’s recommendations and noticed an indie pop act calling itself Brandon & Leah. As it happens, their music is influenced by pop. soul, hip-hop, and reggae, making it a fitting hybrid soundtrack for the bronuffin. The result in “Life Happens” is relentlessly perky.
