BRIOCHE


img_20181115_0935408635656221732152584252.jpgToday i’m going to share with you the

recipe for Brioche.It has a rich

content of butter and eggs,and no

water is added when making the

dough.

Brioche originated from France can

be made into savoury or sweet and

served for breakfast or tea.

You can make with dry fruit

inclusions,chocolate,or with fruits

soaked in rum/ brandy.Just a sprinkle

of sugar ,with nuts , lemon or orange

rind alone is a super treat.

Well,i made the dough and divided

into savoury and sweet bakes.(The shapes in the photo may not be perfect as rush job ,but the recipe is lovely).

The kneading process is more of a

workout ,but fortunately owners of

kitchen aid will find it easy.The recipe

i’m going to share with you has

toppings of sweet and savoury.As i

have explained above you can add

fruits into the dough after the 2nd

rise.

Adding cheese with garlic or

tomato,basil,spinach….. ,is also a good

suggestive for savoury brioche.

A little creativity can do wonders,so

do try your  favourites too, and send

in your suggestions and

comments.For the recipe now…
