Lemon Buchty Brioche

A brioche made of sweet yeast rolls baked together in a baking pan, amazing…..
The dough is very fluffy, surrounded by a crispy golden crust.
Buchty are similar to brioches, but lighter, because they have no butter, but sour cream or crème fraîche.
I used lemon to inflator the dough, but generally it is served plain.

Lemon Buchty Brioche - make 1 small loaf

  3. Then add the crème fraîche with lemon juice and extract.
  4. Knead for 10 minutes.
  5. Then, add salt.
  6. On a lightly floured surface, shape the dough into a ball, place in a bowl, cover with clingfilm and let rise until double in size.
  7. Deflate the dough, re-shape the dough into a ball, place in a bowl, cover with clingfilm and rfrigerate for 12 hours.
  8. The day after, on a lightly floured surface, deflate the dough and shape 12 small balls, about 1 ¼ oz (34 g) each.
  9. Place the balls, leaving room to spread, in a buttered square mould.
