Hello everyone, the weekend is here again. There is just so much you want to do during the week, but time goes by so fast.
Yesterday I made a brioche dough, placed it in the fridge overnight and then made a delicious brioche loaf for breakfast.
So yummy. If you want something extra special for tomorrow, prepare this dough tonight.
I made Nutella Brioche buns for the children, using the other half of the dough. Their favorite buns.
Here are the recipes for both.
Brioche loaf (2 loaves) or 24 brioche buns:
- 3 1/4 cup (400 g) all-purpose flour
- 4 tablespoons (35 g) powdered milk
- ¼ cup (50 g) regular sugar
- ¼ teaspoon salt
- 1 ¾ oz. (50 g) fresh yeast
- ¼ cup (50 ml) tepid water
- 3 large eggs + 1 egg yolk (use the leftover egg white to brush the buns before baking)
- ½ cup + 1 tablespoon (150 g) butter, at room temperature
Preheat the oven to 350˚F (180 ˚C).
Put all the dry ingredients into a mixing bowl; the flour, sugar and salt.
Add the eggs, egg yolk and butter.
Dissolve the yeast in the tepid water. Add to the dry ingredients.
Mix on medium speed for about 20 minutes.
Spray the top of the dough with baking spray, cover with plastic wrap and place in the fridge for at least 6 hours or preferably overnight.
Remove the dough from the fridge to allow it to come to room temperature. Dust your work surface with some flour, tip out the dough and divide into two parts.
I use a loaf pan with a lid to make the brioche slices quite square. You can find a pan like this here.
Place half of the dough in the pan to cover the base. When the dough is risen, bake in the preheated oven for about 40-45 minutes.
Leave the loaf in the pan for 15 minutes before turning out.
I love to cut this Brioche Loaf into slices, toast them and then eat with some butter and a sprinkling of sugar, accompanied by a lovely cup of tea.
The perfect weekend treat.
Or have it with some lovely homemade strawberry jam!
You still have time to make this for your Sunday breakfast, it’s so good.
Since my children love Nutella, and today is Saturday, I made Nutella Brioche from the other half of the dough.
In which case you’ll need:
- Brioche dough:
- 3-4 tablespoons Nutella
- 1 3/4 oz. (50 g) walnuts, chopped
- 1 oz. (30 g) chocolate
Roll out the dough to a large rectangle.
Spread out 3-4 tablespoons Nutella.
Sprinkle over the chopped walnuts and some chocolate buttons.
Roll up the dough like a swiss roll.
Cut the roll into pieces.
Arrange on a lined baking tray and bake in the oven (use the fan setting) for about 10-15 minutes.
Freshly baked Nutella Brioche, so delicious.
Happy kids = happy mummy.
I had a Nutella Brioche bun too, they’re just so good and after all it is the weekend…
Have a nice weekend everyone.
Hugs from me to you.
