    Those brioche look excellent – I tried doing them and they turned out like pancakes – all flat and solid like farmhouse bread

      If you’re in Los Angeles coming to my cooking class to learn. My dough was very loose. I put them in a muffin tin for the burgers. The dough needs a bread pan or something like that to keep a shape and to rise.

        Unfortunately I’m an 11 hour flight away – however when I made brioche the recipe stated putting the dough in the fridge for an hour which to my mind was counter-intuitive; I mean yeast needs warmth to work, right? Good tip about the muffin tins though, that would probably have worked better than just putting balls of dough on a flat baking sheet

        The reason the dough would go in the frig is to develop the yeasty bread flavor overnight and then you would bring it out to rise the next day. I’m still tweaking my recipe, which will be in “Fresh Food in a Flash” style meaning quick, unfussy. I hope to post following the July 25 class. Look for it.
