Brioche

Brioche is one of favourite French Breakfast made with white flour, enriched with butter, eggs and very little sugar. This buttery light buns can served with both sweet or savoury foods.

 First when I made this bread I had no idea of posting this since the dough dint look so good, so I dint make any proper Brioche shape, but when I had a piece of this bread, OMG! no matter how bad it looks I definitely have to post this recipe, since it tasted so buttery and light. I doubt I'll go to shop bought brioche now...
Recipe adapted from the book ' The Bread' by Christine Ingram and Jennie Shapter
Makes 1 loaf or 12 mini brioche
Ingredients:
White bread flour or Plain Flour- 300 g
Dried Yeast - 1 tsp
Eggs-2
Warm Milk-50 ml
Butter- 150 g( softened)
Salt- 1 tsp
Sugar- 1/2 tbsp
For the glaze:
Egg yolk- 1
Milk- 1 tbsp
Note:
I dint give the glaze so my breads are not in the lovely golden colour , to get the colour please give the glaze.
Method:
Sift the flour in a large bowl. Add  dried yeast, salt and sugar mix it well. Make a well in the center , add the eggs and warm milk, knead it to make a dough, now add the softened butter and mix well into the dough. Form the dough like a neat ball, cover with a cling film and leave it to rise for 1 to 2 hours or until doubled in bulk. Knock the air back, knead it again. Keep it in the refrigerator for overnight. The next day , take it outside one hour before baking.
 Either shape it into 1 big loaf or divide it between 12 mini brioche forms. I used muffin tray with paper cups.
After shaping , cover with a cling film and leave it to  rise for another 1 to 2 hours until it reaches the top of the mould, brush the brioche with half of the glaze.
Preheat the oven to 230 degree Celsius, brush the brioche with remaining half of the glaze. Bake it in the preheated oven for 10 minutes. Then reduce the oven temperature to 190 degree Celsius and bake it for another 20 to 25 minutes or until golden brown on top.
Leave it in the wire rack to cool, serve the bread warm with your favourite jam and cream.
This recipe goes to Yeast spotting and Champa's Bake-Off event.
