BBA Challenge #4! Still baking strong…
I am happy to be baking the poor man version of brioche. All that really means is that there is less butter/ fat in the dough. The recipe calls for 1/2 C butter, versus 2 Cups in the ‘Rich Man’s’ version, and I even used skim milk instead of full fat (that’s just what we drink).
So, i was a bit confused by the directions this time. When making the ‘Poor Man’s Version, after resting the dough for 90 minutes, you are supposed to continue with shaping per the Rich Man’s Version. It is not really clear which number is the beginning of shaping the dough, so i only let mine rest in the fridge for 1.5-2 hours before shaping it, then proofing for 2 hours. In the end, the bread may not have met it’s full potential, but still turned out pretty good.
As per usual, check out more photos on Flickr!
