For this weeks Tuesday’s With Dorie, Yolanda of The All-Purpose Girl has selected, Kugelhopf on pages 61-63 of Baking From My Home to Yours By Dorie Greenspan.
The brioche family of breads just feel so silky and sexy once all the butter has been slowly added in.
I was sent to Freedom Furniture to find some fresh cushions for the display house I work in. Low and behold- they had silicone Kuglehopf pans. It was kismet. If I walked away and didn’t buy them I would be thumbing my nose at the kitchen gods who were smiling down upon me. I am not the kind of girl to show disrespect to the kitchen gods so I bought one.
My dough had a days rest in the fridge. While it was fridge cold I stretched it out as a long snake to coil inside the mold.
I got too hungry to let this proof any further. Not sure it had too much more to give. I didn’t get too much oven spring.
This is seriously good, but like all brioche breads depends very much on the quality of your eggs and butter.
I didn’t have an opportunity to see how well this kept. I almost lost fingers with the rate my boys ate it up for breakfast. I got a great crumb structure with little gossamer like stands that made me happy.
Now go check out the TWD blogroll and check out the 300 or so other dedicated bakers.
