You'll live for this Brioche Bread
Nothing beats the feeling you get when you first wake up on Christmas morning — especially when you know you’ve got a warm breakfast waiting for you.
Today i will be sharing my favourite go- to, delicious breakfast idea.
Make homemade brioche and enjoy with jam or butter for breakfast.
It takes a little effort, but the results of this sweet, soft bread are well worth it
If you love butter, you'll live for this brioche bread !
450g strong white flour
2 tsp fine sea salt
50g caster sugar
7g dried active yeast
100ml whole milk
4 eggs at room temperature, beaten, plus 1 for egg wash
190g salted butter , cubed
* Chocolate chips Optional
Begin by adding the flour in a bowl mixer with a dough hook.
Add the salt to one side and sugar to the other.
Pour in the yeast to the side with the sugar.
Mix each side into the flour with your hands, then mix it all together with the dough hook.
Heat the milk until warm to the touch, but not hot. Mix into the flour mix until combined. With the dough hook on medium, gradually add the eggs and mix for 10 mins. Then add Vanilla too.
Gradually add the softened butter, one or two cubes at a time, until combined.
This will take 5-8 mins until the dough is soft.
Scrape the dough into a large bowl, cover with a kitchen towel and leave for 1 hr 30 mins until doubled in size and well-risen.
Once risen, put in the fridge for 1 hr.
Portion the dough into seven equal pieces. Lightly dust a work surface with flour, take a piece of dough and pull each corner into the middle to form a circular shape.
With a bit of pressure, push down and roll into ball. The shape them.
Then cover again with a Kitchen towel and leave to prove for 40 mins until almost doubled in size.
Heat the oven to 180C
Lightly brush the dough with the egg wash and bake for 30 mins until golden and risen.
