What I love about Brioche is that it can be used in a variety of ways. It’s perfect for anything from French toast to dinner rolls, and even as the base for wonderful desserts like this Brioche Bread Pudding!
What is Brioche? Brioche is a type of bread that has been popular in France since the 19th century. It’s made with an enriched dough and brushed with butter before baking, which gives it its golden color and rich flavor.
In this article, I’m going to show you how to make Brioche bread balls by first preparing the dough in a breadmaker and then baking them using a muffin pan.
I prepare this in the bread machine on dough cycle then allow to rise overnight in fridge, covered with cling wrap.
I then knead it down, shape it into rolls and leave it at room temperature and rise before cooking.
1 1/2 tbsp water
1/4 cup of butter chopped into pieces
1/2 tsp salt
1 tbsp caster sugar
1 1/2 cup high grade flour
2 tsp quick rise yeast (breadmaker yeast)
Place all ingredients into the pan in the order listed. Insert baking pan, close the lid and turn knob to dough setting. Press start or continue.
Shape dough into small balls and place them inside a muffin pan. Make indentation with your finger in the center of each roll, then put another ball of dough on top, pushing it onto the first one.
Leave to rise until doubled in size (around 30 minutes). Brush with egg wash and bake for around 20 minutes at 355 F or until golden brown.
These are best eaten warm and served with butter and jam.
