    Um Safia's Note:

    This is the same basic recipe as my regular Tear & Share Brioche but this one has the added bonus of having chocolate centres & chocolate icing!

    Serves: 12



    Units: US | Metric

    Part 1

    Part 2

    Part 3

    • 2 free-range eggs

    Part 4

    Part 5

    • 12 (1 ounce) your favourite chocolate squares

    Part 6


    1. 1
      Mix the warm milk & yeast in a bowl. Leave to stand for a few minutes.
    2. 2
      Sift the 1oz of flour into the milk & yeast mix, add the 1 tsp of sugar & mix well. Leave to stand in a warm place for 10 mins or until frothy (will look a little like mousse!).
    3. 3
      While the starter is standing, sift the flour & salt into a mixing bowl. Add the vanilla sugar then rub in the butter. ( rub in method - rub the butter into the flour to create 'bread crumbs' - like you do with short crust pastry)).
    4. 4
      When the starter is frothy, whisk in the 2 eggs. When the eggs are fully incorporated, pour the mixture into mixing bowl & stir the ingredients until they come together to form a ball.
    5. 5
      Remove the ball of dough & knead on a lightly floured surface for a minute or until no longer sticky.
    6. 6
      Place the dough on a lightly floured dish or tray, cover & let rest in a warm place for around 90 minutes or until roughly doubled in size.
    7. 7
      When doubled in size, knead the dough again for another minute - just to knock the air out a bit.
    8. 8
      Dust a work surface with flour then divide the dough into 12 equal pieces ( cut dough into quarters then cut each quarter into thirds). Place a square of chocloate in the centre of each piece of dough then form into a ball.
    9. 9
      Lightly grease a baking tin then place the balls inside - 3 in the middle of the tin & 9 around the edges - make sure there are spaces in between.
    10. 10
      Place in a preheated oven at 230 c (450 F) for around 18 minutes. Start checking the brioche at 15 minutes, remove from oven when pale gold all over.
    11. 11
      Remove from tin & allow to cool.Divide the icing sugar into 2 bowls. Add the cocoa powder to one & add a tiny bit of hot water at a time to each, until you have a thick icing that you drizzle over the brioche. Slowly drizzle the icing over the brioch until it is almost covered.
    12. 12
      Tear off a piece when you want & enjoy!

      This was a whole new experience for me. I am accustomed to working with yeast but never did a starter before and I have never made brioche before this. I only made half this recipe and got 4 buns out of it. I used milk choc. squares and put raspberry preserves in 2 of the buns with the chocolate as a variation. This is delicious! Crusty outside, soft inside, chocolate makes it a wonderful dessert bread. Thanks for sharing! Made for Alphabet Soup Tag.
