Tried out this recipe on the back of the packet of yeast that I bought from the supermarket. The recipe is really easy and I did a twist on it because I wanted it to be healthier. My brioche turned out a little too crumbly and I’m not sure why. But the taste was really quite good and it was moist. I prefer eating bread without preservatives in them too so this was a good start to baking breads. 🙂
250g plain flour
11g dried yeast
6 teaspoons sugar
1 teaspoon salt
6 teaspoons milk
For my twist, I used 125g plain flour and 125g of wholemeal flour. I also added 1 tablespoon of Chia seeds.
Note: All ingredients must be at room temperature.
- Mix the flour, yeast, sugar and salt with the eggs
- Add in the butter and slowly add in the butter
- Mix well and then knead it for 15 minutes (I just left it to my mixer to do the work)
- Leave it to rest for an hour and it should look like below.
- Punch in the middle and knead the dough a little more before shaping it and placing it in an oiled baking tin and let it rise till it’s double its size
- Preheat your oven to 200 dec C and once it’s hot, turn your oven down to 180 deg C and bake your bread for 30 minutes or until the middle of the loaf is thoroughly cooked.
I sliced my brioche like normal bread and I even stored the slices in an old bread plastic bag. As mentioned at the beginning of my post, it was a little too crumbly and it is probably because I was a little lazy and didn’t measure exactly 50g of butter but I guess that if you stuck to the recipe, it would turn out perfect.
