I was bored so I poked around the internet and found a recipe for bread with a surprise in the middle .. a surprise that most everyone would like Chocolate 🙂


The only annoying thing was the waiting but remember “Good things come to those who wait” 🙂
These are all my ingredients and my mothers stand mixer, mine is pink and packed away.

Ingredients

1 pkg active dry yeast (7g)

cup warm milk

2 tbsp raw sugar

2¼ cups all-purpose flour

80 g unsalted butter, softened and cut into small cubes

2 eggs

a pinch salt

8 pieces of dark chocolate about 5-10g each

GLAZE

1 egg for glaze

1 teasp milk

 

Ball of Dough 🙂

 

My little loaves in the oven. (I forgot the glaze..oops)

Directions:

      In a small bowl, dissolve yeast and sugar in the warm milk. Allow yeast to activate for a minute or two. When bubbles begin to appear on the surface then it is ready.
 
                     Meanwhile, in a bowl of a food processor or mixer (with dough hook attached) combine flour and salt.With the motor running slowly add the yeast mixture. Then add the butter one at a time waiting for each piece to be blended into the dough. 
 
                Then add the eggs one at a time and mix until the dough starts to come away from the sides of the bowl. Place the dough into a bowl and cover with plastic wrap or a damp tea towel and set aside in a warm area to prove for 2 hours or until the dough has doubled in size.
 
                When the dough has doubled in size, knead the dough for a few minutes and divide into eight portions. Take a piece of chocolate and wrap each one in the middle of a portion of dough. Place the portions into greased tins or paper moulds and cover and allow to prove for another hour. (I didnt use any mold, i just separated them and put them into a bowl for an hour).
   
                Preheat oven to 375°F. Whisk the egg and milk together to make the glaze. Brush the tops of the brioche with some glaze and then bake for 10-15 minutes or until the tops are browned. 
 
               Remove from oven and allow to cool for 10 minutes then unmould

 

Just out of the oven
