This week is Brioche, which I’ve never made before. In fact, I don’t think I’ve ever even eaten it. Again, there are three choices to choose from:
- Rich Man’s Brioche (over 70% butter as a percentage of the flour)
- Middle Class Brioche (about 50% butter as a % of the flour)
- Poor Man’s Brioche (about 23% butter)
I made the Middle Class Brioche. And I split the dough into some for Petites Brioches à Tête, and some for a loaf. I decided to make a cinnamon swirl out of the loaf dough. And that cinnamon swirl was some of the best cinnamon swirl bread I’ve ever had!
