So Happy and So EXCITED for the summer.
I’ve decided that the BBA Challenge is taking up a lot of my energy so I think that for the next while my blog will focus on just BBA and Daring Kitchen Challenges. I don’t have time to post daily on everything I cook. Maybe by the time that the challenge is over I will have more skills and ideas to get some interesting recipes up here.
For now though I am enjoying focusing on breads.
Even though I haven’t posted, I have been baking so I’m going to spend the next couple of days updating the blog with all the BBA stuff I have done. I did a lot in a short time and now I will be caught up to the rest of the crew (or at least those following the original schedule). I also have a full time job for the summer which means I will have less time than I thought to to bake. But some days with more time will give me the chance to catch up.
This post is on the Brioche, #4 on the list. I was quite nervous about this one because apparently the butter made the dough hard to handle. In the BBA book there are three versions with varying amounts of butter. Mostly for health reasons, I chose to do the Poor Man’s Brioche, which has not only the least butter but also is the simplest.
Overall the recipe was not too difficult (from what I remember!) and boy did they taste good. I should note that I made 16 brioche, in the evening (they were ready at about 8 or 9) and when I woke up the next morning there were 2 left. Seriously! I was kind of shocked and looked around thinking they had been put away but no. That was all that was left.
That’s why I love my family, they love Everything I make barring disaster!
