When the going gets tough, the tough get going, and kouign-amann may be a prime source of motivation to get stuff done on a Monday. Fortunately, this buttery Breton cake recipe is lending itself as a sophisticated and delicious treat to cure the Monday blahs and maybe even prevail over some of the other recipes in your weekly baking rotation.

Made with yeasted dough and layered with butter and sugar, this velvety tart is making its way around the Internet probably as the new post-9-to-5 hobby.

Even though the recipe is complex and labor intensive, it's highly worth the reward; making the decision to taste a fluffy, doughy filling that oozes with buttery goodness is a culinary no-brainer, and might even gain you a new skill to add to your résumé.
