Fig Brioche

Today felt like a day from bread. And not just any bread, but brioche. Yes, that’s right, warm, buttery brioche, and this time with the extra sweetness of figs.

Okay, here we go.

Dissolve the yeast in warm water.

In different bowl, add the butter, sugar, salt, eggs and egg yolk. Add the figs.

Add flour and knead.

Knead and set to rise.

Knead again and set to rise again. When it’s doubled, glaze with one egg yolk and a bit of milk and bake.

1/4 cup water

1 package active dry yeast

1/2 cup milk

2 tbsp. sugar

1/2 cup butter

3 whole eggs

1 egg yolk

1/2 tsp. salt

3 1/4 cups flour

1 cup choppedĀ figs

In lukewarm water, dissolve the yeast. In another bowl mix the butter, sugar, eggs, egg yolk, salt. Add the warm milk and the yeast mixture. Then stir in the figs. Add enough flour to make a soft dough, then knead. Place in oiled bowl and cover, set aside in a warm place to rise until doubled. Knead again, place in prepared pan, set to rise again. Bake at 350 F. for 30 minutes, or until the dough sounds hollow when thumped.
