Quick brioche

    1 hour 45 min

    A brioche ready in less than two hours - yes, it is possible! I make this brioche for afternoon tea and if any remains have it for breakfast the next morning, but that almost never happens!

    this recipe doesn't work with 200ml flour,either use more flour of less water to dissolve the yeast  -  25 Jul 2012


    With 300g of flour the recipe works fine; I think it could probably do with a tad less butter after having made it and it was self greasing on the tin, so next time I'd go for 100g. Otherwise great!  -  06 Mar 2015


    This recipe really doesn't work, looks more like a pancake batter even after extra kneading with the stand mixer and proving. Such a dissapointment.  -  24 Mar 2014
