Cronuts - a half-doughnut, half croissant hybrid - have supposedly taken the world by storm. But two cafés in Lindfield have created their own baked chimerae. Introducing the "Cuffin" and the "Squaffin"...

The "Cuffin" - Café Feoh, Lindfield

Café Feoh's Cuffins are half cupcake, half muffin. So either a slightly bigger cupcake, or a smaller, iced muffin, depending on your perspective.

Café Feoh has a range of other delicious home-baked goods, including Afghan biscuits, traditional vanilla fudge and Millionaire's Shortbread - the original version of caramel shortbread.

It's on the west side of the Pacific Highway at Lindfield, slightly south of the station. Its speciality cuisine is Vietnamese, and fresh Vietnamese spring rolls are made throughout the day.

The "Squaffin" - Lindfield Espresso

For a very healthy bakery option, Lindfield Espresso's "squaffins" are gluten, dairy, and sugar-free. Which makes you wonder what they do actually contain.

According to the label, it's essentially a mix of brown rice flour, almond meal, rice bran oil, egg, light coconut milk and natural sweetener stevia, plus individual flavourings such as berries, banana, apple and walnuts.

The squaffin is sort of a square muffin, but if you're not feeling virtuous there are also more sugar-packed goodies on offer, plus great wraps and sandwiches.

Lindfield Espresso is on the east side of the Pacific Highway at Lindfield, right next to the station.


So which is the winner? The indulgence laurels go to the Cuffin, and the health prize goes to the Squaffin.

And with both including ingredients such as nuts, fruit and vegetables, they easily beat the Cronut for taste and nutrition.
