One of the foods I really miss from France is brioche. Brioche is a sweet bread that we usually eat for breakfast in France, often with Nutella or jam, it can be toasted or simply enjoyed as is. Not long ago, I decided it was about time to make my own brioche. French brioche with choc chips is commonly sold in France and it is usually enjoyed on its own, with a warm drink or with a glass of fresh juice.
- 250 g plain flour
- 100 g butter, melted
- 3 eggs
- 1 serve of baking yeast
- 3 tbsp milk
- 2 tbsp warm water
- 2 tbsp sugar
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 2 tbsp of choc chips
- Preheat the oven to 160°C. In a bowl mix all the ingredients until well combine and elastic.
- Leave to raise at room temperature for 2 hours (the dough should double in volume).
- Place the dough on a flat surface covered with flour and create 5 or 6 balls of equal size.
- Place the balls in a lightly grease baking tray and let raise for an additional 1.5 hours.
- Cook for 30 minutes.
