I guess when it comes to my brioche I am a middle of the road, middle class kind of gal. What I really loved about this week was the explanations and options for the brioche and what they could be used for.
I really want to try making a tart or something with some brioche dough some time, since it is mentioned in the book that it could work.
For this week's Bread Baker's Apprentice challenge we were tasked with making brioche. Luckily I have made brioche a couple of times before, so I had a decent idea of what to expect. What I didn't expect was how much nicer and easier this recipe would come together. The dough was soft, silky and buttery smooth.
I made two loaves from the recipe and used the third portion to make 12 cinnamon rolls/cupcakes. The bread was tender, delicious and very light - especially for all that butter and eggs!
