Don’t let the ten hours proving time put you off making this brioche, its so worth it. Just make sure to prove over night so your not feeling inpatient all day, wishing the time away so you can get your chops round that loaf.
I used a basic brioche recipe by Paul Hollywood as I knew it would be pretty much fool proof. In addition to Paul’s recipe I added honey and an almond paste.
If your not keen on almonds then this may not be for you but you can of course leave out the almond paste if you wish. Although the dough takes along time to prove it was actually not at all difficult to make.
I find it hard to describe to you just how delicious this brioche was. It was buttery and sweet and the almond paste made it taste like a giant almond croissant. The texture was light and fluffy inside with a real crust on the top. To me it was perfection. Also I just want to mention this wonderful raw honeycomb, what a revelation. I’ve never had honey in this form before and it was out of this world amazing. I definitely recommend trying to get your hands on some if you can.
