I'm a bread lover!
A few weeks ago I tried this recipe for making brioche dough. It is the best I've ever made!
Here I am going to show u how to prepare it and I'll also give u a bunch of different ideas on how to use it!
Let's get started!
For the spunge
1/3 cup warm whole milk (110F/38 C)
2-1/4 tsp active dry yeast
2 cups flour
For the dough
1/3 cup sugar
3 big eggs
1 tsp salt
1-1/2 cup flour
2/3 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature (160 g)
Step 1: Step One: Make the Spunge!
Heat up 1/3 cup of milk until it reaches 38 C or 110 F (I put mine for 30 sec in the microwave) and sprinkle 2-1/4 tsp of active dry yeast right on top. Wait about 10 min for the magic to happen!
Next, in a bowl of your electric mixer combine 1 cup flour, 1 egg and the milk/yeast mixture
With a rubber spatula mix the ingredients together until combined
Now cover the top of the mixture with the other cup of flour and let rest uncovered for about 40 min
