Brioches...

If you know me a little, you should now at this point know, that I LOVE everything French - and this recipe is no exception ;) Those small individual brioches are delicious - especially with some jam and cup of coffee or milk. If you like it more traditional way, you can bake it as one, big loaf. Brioche is a highly enriched French bread, whose high egg and butter content give it what is seen as a rich and tender crumb. It has a dark, golden, and flaky crust from an egg wash So don't wait - go to work and enjoy the smell of baked brioches in your kitchen! :)



How to make it...


Ingredients:
- 7 g dry yeast
- 1 tablespoon caster sugar
- 30 ml warm milk
- pinch of salt
- 2 eggs
- 85 g butter, chopped into pieces
- 220 g flour
- 1 egg, beaten for glazing

Mix milk, yeasts and sugar till completely dissolved. Put aside until foamy. Then add eggs and mix well together. In a bowl mix flour and salt. Add yest/egg mixture into the flour and knead till well connected. Add butter and knead for about 10 minutes. Cover the dough with a kitchen towel and put aside into warm place for 1 hour. After an hour, when doubled in size, punch the dough and divide into 12 small pieces. Form small brioches and put them into muffin tins. Cover with cloth and set aside for 30 minutes. Before baking brush brioches with some beaten egg. Bake in 200 C for 15-18 minutes till golden brown.

Smacznego!
