By now, you should know that I love eating and baking bread, brioches, and other dough-based recipes. This recipe is simple, and delicious for breakfast, served straight out of the oven. I made a warm and fresh batch this morning for Fiesta Friday.
I would like to wish our host Angie from The Novice Gardener, a big thank you for hosting this sweet party and also hope you get well soon! Thanks to our co-hosts for this week; Selma @Selma’s Table and Margy @La Petite Casserole. If you haven’t joined Fiesta Friday, come and have fun with us, it now has its own platform, and is in Week #61 already!
Wonderful bloggers with wonderful recipes!
Serves: 12 Briochettes
- 350g of all purpose flour or plain flour
- Pinch of salt
- 30g of caster sugar
- 12g of fresh yeast
- 3 medium eggs
- 160g of good quality of butter
- 1 egg yolk for the brush
- In the mixing bowl of the stand mixer add the flour and the sugar.
- In the middle, add the 3 eggs,
- On one side add the fresh yeast, and on the other side add the salt (never add the yeast beside the salt).
- Start to mix the all the ingredients with the hook of your stand mixer on a medium speed (during 5 minutes).
- Add the butter (cut into small cubes) and mix on a high speed until the dough becomes soft and detaches from the bowl (about 10 minutes).
- Transfer the dough into a floured bowl.
- Cover with a plastic wrap and set aside for 1 hour.
- After 1 hour, punch down to deflate dough completely, then re-cover with plastic wrap.
- Refrigerate the bowl into the refrigerator overnight (this will freeze the butter and develop aroma).
- The following morning, remove the bowl from the refrigerator and transfer the dough to a floured surface.
- Grease small individuals mini brioche mold or muffins tray or a cake baking mold.
- Divide the dough into 12 balls (the size of a golf ball).
- Place them into the mini brioche mold.
- Cover with a clean kitchen cloth and set aside for 2 hours for me.
- Preheat the oven to 180C degrees, 10 minutes before baking.
- Brush the top of the briochettes with the rest of the egg yolk.
- Bake for 30 minutes (less or more depending on the oven).
- Remove when the Briochettes are golden brown and allow to cool a few minutes and serve them warm.
The smell throughout the house is so good! They are soft and perfect for a morning breakfast.
PS: You can shape the brioche in any form (for example, you can see the twisted brioche with pearl sugar in the back!)
