Fruited Brioche Buns !

For those who are not familiar with Brioche,this is a traditional bread eaten in France for breakfast,usually served warm.Conventionally baked in the shape of a small cottage loaf,Brioche has a rich texture just like bread .Now,this is a variation of kind,with a shift in shape and a nice filling to begin the day..

225 gms all purpose flour/white flour

2 large eggs,beaten

50 gm melted butter

1 tbsp caster sugar

7 gm of easy blend,dried yeast

pinch of salt

beaten egg,to glaze

For the Filling

40 gm blanched almonds,chopped

50 gm mixed dried fruit (of your choice)

1 tsp soft brown sugar

2 tsp orange juice


Preheat the oven to 220 degree,15 mts before baking.Sift the flour and salt into a bowl.Stir in the sugar and yeast.Make a well in the centre.Add the eggs,butter and 2 tablespoons of warm water and mix to a soft dough.Knead the dough on a lightly floured surface for 5 mts,until smooth and elastic.Put in an oiled bowl,cover with cling film and leave to rise in a warm place for one hour or until it has doubled in size.

Mix the ingredients for the filling together,cover the bowl and leave to soak while the dough is rising.

Now on to the doubled dough..

Re-knead the dough for 2 mts,then divide it into 12 pieces.Take one piece at a time and flatten three-quarters into a 2.5 inch round.Spoon a little filling in the centre,then pinch the edges together to enclose.

Put seam-side down into a well-greased fluted bun tin.Shape the smaller piece of dough into a round and place on top of the larger one.Repeat this process with the remaining balls of dough.

Now cover the brioche with oiled cling film and leave for about 20 mts,or until well risen.(during this time you may preheat the oven)

Brush the brioches with beaten egg and bake in the preheated oven for 10-12 mts,or until golden.Cool on a wire rack and serve.

    @ Krithi,Easy blend yeast is the most powerful,perfect for bread baking.In fact it is a finer granule than we usually use.You can find at supermarkets.They come in 7 gm sachets and in a packet there may be 5 of such.In case if you don't find you may use rapid rise.You may have to add little more.(In my experience so far Krithi,this is the best choice for breads.)

    @ Vidhya,yes it's a pure delight.

    I feel after reading your comments in various blogs that you must also diversify into writing posts other than cuisine and culinary marvels.
