Plaited cinnamon brioche

    5 hours 30 min

    Brioche made simple... I let my bread machine knead the dough, then I make the plait and leave it to rise all afternoon. My boys are crazy about it!

    1. Place the dough ingredients into your bread machine in the order listed above, and choose the program for "dough."
    2. Flour a work surface and your hands. Remove the dough from the machine and form a ball, then divide the ball into 3 equal parts. Roll each ball out to form a rope, and seal the ropes tightly together at one end. Make a tight plait, then seal the ropes together at the other end. Tuck the ends under so that only the plaited pattern is visible.
    3. Place the plait on a buttered baking tray. Cover with a damp tea towel and let the brioche rise until doubled, about 4 hours.
    4. Preheat the oven to 180 C / Gas 4. Whisk the egg and water together for a glaze, and brush over the brioche. Sprinkle with sugar crystals or pearls.
    5. Bake in the preheated oven until golden, about 25 minutes.
