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).
Did you stuff these? Have them with hummus? Let’s see those links!
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.
We made this dough before (about two years ago) to do Eastern Mediterranean Pizzas but we didn’t do the basic pitas. Now’s our chance!
Any questions or advice? Here’s a video of the episode.
Did you try them both or did you pick one? Let’s see those links!
Time for a petits fours party! Any questions or advice?
There’s a video of the episode to help.
How did this one come together? Let’s see those links!
Here are the BWJ August recipes! We have a choice for the first week, since these two petits fours are almost exactly the same (just cut into different shapes). Feel free to pick one or make some of each out of the cake.
August 4, 2015- Miniature Florentine Squares, p 268-270 and/or Glazed Mini-Rounds, p 271-272
August 18, 2015- Pita Breads, p 154-155
What do you think we should make from BWJ in August? Please nominate one sweet/breakfast recipe and one savory/bread recipe (with page numbers).
