Brioches Recipe

Ingredients: Makes 12

15 g/0.5 oz fresh yeast or 20 ml/4 tsp dried yeast
30 ml/2 tbsp warm water
2 eggs, lightly beaten
225 g/8 oz/2 cups strong plain (bread) flour
15 ml/1 tbsp caster (superfine) sugar

2.5 ml/0.5 tsp salt
50 g/2 oz/0.25 cup butter or margarine, melted

Method:

Mix together the yeast, water and eggs, then stir into the flour, sugar, salt and butter or margarine and mix to a soft dough. Knead until elastic and no longer sticky. Place in an oiled bowl, cover and leave in a warm place for about 1 hour until doubled in size.


Knead again, divide into 12 pieces, then break a small ball off each piece. Shape the larger pieces into balls and place in 7.5 cm/3 in fluted brioche or muffin tins (pans). Press a finger right through the dough, then press the remaining balls of dough on the top. Cover and leave in a warm place for about 30 minutes until the dough has reached just above the tops of the tins. Bake in a preheated oven at 230C/ 450F/gas mark 8 for 10 minutes until golden.
