Recipe was taken from Delicious Days long long time ago. It was orange brioche. The picture posted on the blog just simply looked captivating. I didn't try it out until now, as I didn't venture into bread baking then.
I didn't have any orange at home, hence I replace with apricot, chocolate chips. I made 3 version in total. 1 with apricot, it taste WERID. The chocolate was nice. The plain taste just as good. And most importantly Atalie always loves to eat my bread. hehe.
Here is the adapted recipe.Make 6 standard muffin size.
125 ml lukewarm milk
10g instant yeast
35g white sugar
a pinch of salt
35g melted butter
1. Sieve the flour into a bowl and make a little depression in the middle. Pour the lukewarm milk into the well, add the instant yeast and one teaspoon of sugar. Carefully stir the milk mixture once or twice.
2.Cover bowl with a kitchen towel and let the pre-dough rise for about 15 minutes, the surface will start to look bubbly.
3. Add the remaining ingredients (sugar, egg, pinch of salt, cooled down melted butter) and use a mixer to knead till it is elastic enough. Add more flour if necessary.
4. Cover and let proof for about 1 hour or till dough double.
5. Knead dough one more time to release the air.
6. Cut in equal pieces and form little snow ball sized dumplings. Each ball is bout 72g.
7. Place little paper cups in the holes of a muffin tray. Let rest for 10 mins.
8. Bake at 200°C for about 15 minutes or until the tops turns golden brown. Cover with foil if the tops get too dark too fast.
