BRIOCHE

Photobucket

Brioche is a French sweet bread enriched with butter, sugar and egg. It uses special brioche pan and a classic shape has a fluted bottom and an upper protruding knob.

I decided to bake a simpler version of brioche and eggless too. Although slight modification was made from the original recipe I found on net, it turns out fantastic, buttery and sweet but with less fat. My children love this bread and request to bake it again. What you need for this bread are:

BRIOCHE

4 cups bread flour
4 tsp instant yeast
1/2 C castor sugar
1 and 1/2 tsp salt
200 ml warm milk
1/2 C softened butter
2 T shortening

METHOD

* Place yeast, sugar, salt, salt and flour into a mixing bowl.

* Add the milk, using a stand mixer, beat until well combined.

* Mix in butter and shortening, continue kneading until butter is well incorporated.

* Knead the dough for 8 minutes until it becomes elastic and leaves the side of the bowl.

* Cover and let rise in a greased bowl for 1-2 hours or until double in size.

* Punch out the air, divide into small balls or loaf and put onto greased baking sheet/loaf pan.

* Leave to prove for 30-40 minutes. Brush with butter and bake in preheated oven @ 190 C for 15-20 minutes.

* Transfer on rack to cool.

Love brioche, but I have never made it. I need to try with the weather cooling off. There is a restaurant in Cabo that makes theirs in a loaf pan and then makes it into french toast - incredible. They also do a sweet panini with it with chocolate and fruit in the middle. I am going to have to try your recipe out. Can't wait.
