This challenge is forcing me to bake some things that I would never try. I made the middle class brioche, with only 5 eggs and a cup of butter. Can you hear everyone's arteries closing?
It was easy to make up. I had ordered some large cardboard brioche mold's from King Arthur's Flour. I divided the dough in two but probably could have made three loaves. Apparently, they baked into the classic Brioche shape, as verified by an internet images search by a disbelieving teenager.
The bread is buttery. Your hands and lips are coated with each bite. It is delicious but about as far away from a bread that I would reach for as possible.
However, Scout can't stay away. We actually had to put the loaves on the top of the refrigerator to cool. Her little dog nose can smell the fat and she is sure it would be tasty.
