Baking this brioche from Baking with Julia was so much fun. It required lots of mixing in our up until now underused mixer. For some reason I was surprised that everything went according to plan. I just about squealed with delight when a completed brioche came out of the oven (even though it was a day and half after I started). It tastes just like the brioche we have gotten from our local french bakery.
Before First Rising--I eventually had to transfer two-thirds of the rising dough to another bowl because it REALLY rose. Only one third of this dough went into making the brioche loaf below.
Look Inside--Nice Nooks and Crannies!
