P & Q: Golden Brioche Loaves Posted on August 17, 2011 by julessomeone I’ll admit that this one is a bit daunting. What do you do to make it easier? Share this:FacebookTwitterLike this:Like Loading... Related
This is quite the coincidence! I left this site and went to the King Arthur blog where they were discussing – wait for it – brioche! So here’s the link so you can see another version. http://www.kingarthurflour.com/blog/2011/08/16/brioche-french-toast-lost-bread-at-its-best/
i saw this KA post yesterday. i thought it was a good coincedence, too!
Thanks for the link. I love the KA blog, they do such a good job. I haven’t visited it for a few weeks so thanks for the reminder.
I enjoyed this one – I have never had brioche before, and l love how this bread tasted like a cake. Instead of a second loaf, I made a brioche apple tart. I was astounded at how all that butter eventually worked into the dough – just keep mixing it and it does eventually all combine.
This will be my first time before as well. I’m going to do the pecan sticky buns instead of the second loaf. Wish me luck! Making the dough tonight!
Hope the sticky buns went well!
We used this recipe eons ago to make the Pecan Sticky Buns and Raisin Snails! So delicious. I am rewinding the raisin snails with one half of my brioche dough.
The one thing I will caution: WATCH YOUR MIXER. It will dance all over the counter when beating the dough, even if you have a heavy-duty one as I do.
Brioche was a first for me. I did not find it difficult to make but it was time consuming. I think, I was so sure, I was going to fail that I only made half. Now, I am sorry.
I’ve made bread machine brioche before with very good luck. Will try it again with this recipe. On our vacation to Provence this past May, my favorite pastry above all the chocolate and almond filled croissants and other decadent pastries was a simple brioche!
This really wasn’t that bad to make. LOTS of butter just made it better!!
I recently found out that brioche dough freezes really well, for quite a long time. I had some dough in my freezer for longer than I’d like to admit; I chanced making something with and it turned out great! I plan to make the loaf this week and freeze the other half to make sticky buns in a couple weeks.
I just purchased a Pain de mie pan while in the States. It is the larger size, but Dorie’s recipe make 2 loafs, so the size should work. The KA post mentioned above has good info. I will give it a try. I look forward to see how everyone did with this one.
