pains au chocolat 1

Pains au chocolat (almost)

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

Orange blossom water braided brioche

A few days ago I tried this recipe for making brioche dough, by the famous itaian Patry Chef Luca Montersino:it is the best I’ve ever made. It is a particular dough, because you prepare the dough twice…..it is more difficult to explain than prepare it. Brioche dough is not so sweet and not so buttery……so you cannot feel guilty eating a slice. I tried a braided brioche, but you can shape the dough as you prefer. Try: it is healthy and delicious, for a special breakfast.

Apple cake

Apples cake

An apple cake is not the perfect Fall dessert only……..it can be prepared along all the year. Each home baker has a secret recipe for the “best” apple cake….. This cake is the best apple cake I can remember. Super soft, thanks to the dough: infact the recipe calls for pastry choux recipe……but the proportions are different. I suggest you to try it: served plain, or with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or a dollop of softly whipped cream.

Morning brioches

Nothing better than a gorgeous home made brioches for breakfast. Easy to make, they are a must-have for Sunday morning. It is better to try  these brioches warm, because I really couldn’t wait until the rolls had cooled to have a taste…… I prefer plain brioches, but you can fill them according to your taste.
