As time consuming as bread-making is reputed to be (it’s not really as most of it is non-active time), it apparently takes much more effort than blogging. I have made 3 more BBA breads for the BBA Challenge and have yet to post on them. So without further ado, bread #4, as you readers know, an old favorite: brioche!
Since I made brioche (yet again) shortly before joining the challenge, I don’t have much new to report. To “mix it up” (because I’m crazy that way) I used my set of smaller brioche molds to make four more modest size loaves. (Yes, I have two sets of brioche molds…and?) I actually thought they were a pretty nice size to slice into and make brioche toast slathered with raspberry jam (my favorite–it seems to re-melt the butter inside all over again, bring out the golden, comforting flavor!)
I think that I may have overbaked them slightly–35 minutes might have been a tad bit too long; note to self for the next time.
I did take lots of photos–and in the interests of getting through a BBA backlog, I’ll let the visuals do the rest!
