Brioche is a pastry of French origin. It is made in the same way as bread, but is richer and fluffier thanks to the use of eggs, butter, milk, water or cream, and some sugar. Expat Living reader Jennier Beaulieu has submitted her favourite version of a brioche recipe. “I love this low-fat recipe because there are few ingredients, but it results in a huge and delicious brioche!”. It serves eight.
• 280ml milk
• 1 egg
• 30g butter
• 550g flour
• 80g sugar
• ½ cube fresh yeast
• Optional: small pieces of apple
1. In a mixing bowl, mix together all the ingredients until you create a dough. (If you have a bread machine, choose the “dough” option.) 2. Divide the dough into three portions, then make a braid with the three pieces.
3. Let the braided dough sit under a towel for two hours.
4. Sprinkle some sugar onto the dough, and bake in the oven for about 30 minutes at 180 degrees Celsius.
