August 23, 2011 – For this week Margie of Tea and Scones chose Golden Brioche Loaves on pages 48-50 of BFMHTY by Dorie Greenspan.
The timing for this one was perfect. We were invited for brunch and this is a rather lovely thing to bring along to the table.
I quite like making brioche. This was fairly straightforward (thank you KitchenAid) to make. I always get a little concerned with the final rise. Bread dough rises so quickly here in the tropics. When you have to wait for it to warm up from the fridge it feels like it will never puff up.
While this is a nice brioche I think for the effort involved for reward factor I am still a fan of the no knead version. I recall I did make this brioche recipe a while ago as well but I filled it with pastry cream and sultanas. To finish off this post- I sprinkled some pearl sugar on top just before baking. Pearl sugar is one of my new favourite things.
