About this recipe: 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!
I don't know what I did wrong. I followed d recipe exactly, 5 hours later the dough hasn't risen an inch. However, I didn't want to waste my ingredients so I still baked it, it has baked like a heavy cake. When the mixture was kneading I thought it looked like it would need some sort of moisture but recipe didn't say that, so carried on mixing but it wouldn't come together so tipped it out & kneaded it to a soft dough, divided it, plaited it & left it to rise-------- no increase in size at all! - 21 Jan 2016
