Tuesdays With Dorie – Golden Brioche Loaves

by Jessica on August 23, 2011

Golden Brioche Loaves

I know how excited I get before I’m about to bake bread. It’s one of my favorite indulgences and I miss it terribly (way more than I miss those thirty extra pounds I’ve lost). But what I didn’t remember about baking brioche, is the incredibly long rising times the recipe calls for. It’s been over three years since I last made it (using the dough for Dorie’s Pecan Honey Sticky Buns), so I’d forgotten how agonizing it is to wait for this lovely bread to bake up.

My loaves didn’t rise like they should have this time around, but what they lacked in height, they made up for in taste… an absolute buttery taste. Momma G compared the flavor to croissants, so maybe that’s a sign I’ll perfect #3 on my 30-Before-30 list. Sounds good, right? 🙂

A buttery loaf? Hmmmm – sounds glorious to me!

I relate to you about those rise waiting times. The bread is easy to make but the waiting is challenging. The results are worth it. You have a stunning loaf.

They mite not have risen much but the texture looks perfect.

Thanks for baking with me this week.

Mmmm, I would happily have some of this. Love brioche!

I agree with Momma G – the brioche is sort of like croissants, though I personally find croissants even more buttery and flaky (and hence delicious)! Your loaf looks great Jessica 🙂

I posted the two variations made with the dough. I does take a long time but the bread is very tasty. Your loaves look great!

Hi, Jessica! Wow! Congratulations on your weight loss! Your brioche looks so pretty and golden. If brioche tastes that croissants I will definitely have to make this for my husband.

I have got to make this soon. It looks so good. Congrats on -30, that’s wonderful.

I hadn’t thought about it, but this was croissant-like in flavor. I guess that’s why it was so good with jam for breakfast!

Lovely and buttery goodness!


11 Nic August 24, 2011 at 12:42 pm

cute little loaf, sorry it didnt get the height you wanted but it sure looks good to me!

What gorgeous golden color on that loaf! Mine were more “brown” than “golden.” 30 pounds – wow, very impressive! I’m thinking the brioche diet is not the way to go for me. 🙂
