Recently, I have tried different brioche doughs, even with different kinds of fat from butter, and sincerely, all ones very good and soft, but this is LA BRIOCHE par excellence … .. In despite the high amount of butter and eggs, it is lighter than a cloud. The original shape of Conticini’s Mousseline Brioche is like the Okkaido milk bread (you can find here). I did not want to repeat the same shape, so I propose mini-brioche, but very similar to Continici’s one. It’s a long dough to prepare because the eggs and butter need to be well absorbed, but it’s worth it.
The ciabatta, a traditional Italian bread, is made the authentic way with a biga, to be added the day after to the dough. The exterior is nice and crusty, while the inside is fluffy and soft. Perfect bread for making a sandwich, or for breakfast with butter and jam. A bit long to prepare….but you will be satisfied by the results.
I was asked by a friend to take part in a contest, where you do not win anything, but where you only share the desire to knead. The topic was bicolor brioches: so I decided to prepare some pains au chocolate, made with vanilla and cocoa brioche doughs. A set of classic tastes, which never disappoints. Perfect for breakfast. #briochedeprintemps
A special milk bread, prepared with a special japanese method: Tangzhong. Tangzhong is a roux, prepared with water or milk, that has to be added to the dough…..your bread will be super soft and very very delicious. You will get a bread higher and lighter than it would otherwise be. A perfect milk bread for breakfast or for tea time. I reduced the sugar a little, but if you follow the original recipe, you can get gorgeous and delicious small brioches or “pains au chocolat”.
A simple but tasty recipe. A brioche dough made with mascarpone cheese, soft and silky. Perfect brioches for breakfast, brunch or simply if you want something gorgeous to taste.
Toast or sandwich bread…..or simply for breakfast….with butter and jam Soft and tasty, with butter and milk in the dough. You can store in freezer….. What else? To try.
When I was a child I spent several years in Puglia on holiday and Taralli (bagels) were my favorite snacks. Only recently I had the opportunity to taste them again, then I decided to try to make them at home. After several attempts, I found my perfect recipe: I replaced a portion of flour with potato starch to give more crispness. Tasty by themselves, perfect with a glass of Prosecco.
Potatoes buns are beloved because of their lightness. The recipe is very easy to execute and loaves are fluffy and full of flavor, totally delicious, and with fresh, chopped rosemary in the dough, they are fabulous. These loaves are easy enough to make everyday but special enough to serve to friends and guests.
I love baking and I love making bread, trying to spend as much time as possible in this hobby. Pumpkin is generally used in sweet cake loaf or in soups. I decided to make a savoury bread, with a beautifully warm colour, perfect for brunch or for breakfast, slapped with really good butter. The pumpkin does not make the bread particularly sweet. It is a loaf we were delighted with, infact there were only crumbs left after the brunch Try and let me know.
A great satisfaction is to pick herbs and vegetables in the garden and then make a bread. Rustic thanks to the whole wheat flour, but soft and tasty . Perfect with cheeses and meats . Simple and delicious.
