BWJ September Schedule

Okay, September will be Brioche Month!  One batch of brioche dough (p 43-45) can be split in half to make our final two recipes using it.  I plan to freeze the half that I’m not working with first after the dough’s first rise–hopefully that will work just fine…

There’s an extra Tuesday this month that we can use to make-up a missed recipe, revisit on old favorite, or just take a break.

September 1, 2015- Brioche Tart with White Secret Sauce, p 386-388

September 15, 2015- Twice-Baked Brioche, p 198-200

September 29, 2015- Rewind Week

Here’s a video of Nancy and Julia making the basic brioche dough and the tart (and Julia crying when she tastes the tart…awww).

BWJ August Nominations

Would anyone want to have “Brioche Month” in September?   I noticed that we have two recipes that each call for a half-batch of the standard brioche dough: Brioche Tart with White Secret Sauce (p. 386) and Twice-Baked Brioche (p. 198).   We could knock out both by making one batch of dough, dividing it in two, and either baking off both recipes at the same time or freezing half the dough after the first rise to make the second recipe later.

If that doesn’t sound any good to you, please nominate one sweet/breakfast recipe and one savory/bread recipe (with page numbers).

You can check out the Completed Recipes page if you need a reminder of all the things we’ve done already, or this if you want to see what’s left.
