Good morning! Nothing seems more fitting today than a tasty recipe for some soft, buttery and flaky brioche rolls, best fresh out of the oven (or warmed up). I’ll be honest – these are not “light” rolls but they are OUT. OF. THIS. WORLD. They’re easy to make but sound super fancy – think Valentines Day. I’m usually a dessert over bread person but I just might be changing my mind. How about you? Bread or dessert? Or both??

BRIOCHE BREAD ROLLS RECIPE
*makes 12 rolls
3/4 c warm milk
1 T yeast
1/4 c + 2 tsp sugar
4 c flour
5 large eggs
2 sticks of chilled butter, sliced thinly dash of salt (if using unsalted butter)
optional: 1 tsp + 1 egg (egg wash)
In a large mixing bowl (of stand mixer), combine yeast, 2 tsp sugar and milk. Allow to stand for 5 minutes.
(I have highlighted each of the ingredients below to make things a bit easier to read)
Stir in1 1/2 c flourand1/4 c sugar. Turn mixer to high and add in 1 egg. Mix well and add in1 c flour. Mix well. Add in2 eggsand mix for about 5 minutes or until thoroughly combined. Add another 1 c flour. Beat well.Add1 eggand beat on low for 2 minutes and then beat on high for 2 minutes. Finally, add in1/2 c flour, mixing well after the addition and follow that with the last1 egg. Beat for 5 minutes.
Gradually beat in butter, one slice at a time. Beat well after each addition and mix until butter is incorporated into the dough. *Small/tiny chunks of butter are fine as long as they are smaller than the size of a pea.
Place dough in a buttered bowl. Cover with greased plastic wrap first and then a large blanket. Place in a draft-free area. Allow to rise for 1 hour and 15 minutes. Punch down edges and gather dough together. Divide dough into 12 equal parts (each part will be about 1.5-2″ in diameter). Shape each part into a ball (dough will be very “wet/loose”) and place in greased muffin pan. Cover with the plastic wrap and blanket and allow to rise another 1 hour.
Preheat oven to 350. Bake for 11-12 minutes until lightly golden on top.
So I know that this burger recipe isn’t authentically Greek but it does use tzatziki sauce and feta cheese so does that count? We’ve already established that I’m a bit obsessed with tzatziki sauce and at least half of you confessed your addiction to me on the last post and so the most logical thing to do…
I’ve got a confession to make: I actually completely forgot about this outfit. It was on my phone and I kept meaning to post it but life got in the way. So here we are, a few months late and you’ve got this amazing dress to admire. I only wish we still had the awesome…
Spending time outdoors is easy for me – I love photographing scenery, going on walks, hiking to vistas, and feeling the sun on my face. However, not everyone enjoys being outside whether it’s because they hate insects, can’t monitor the temperature or because they find it boring. So I’m bringing you today 5 tips to…
I’ve learned a lot during my last few years of blogging. While I love blogging and couldn’t even imagine doing anything else, it is a job and like any other job, it comes with its own set of headaches and problems. You’ll have moments where you’re 100% stressed, disappointed and irritated but IMO it’s all…
This leather jacket (my favorite to date) has been neglected for far too long. Since temperatures have been rewardingly mild this winter, a leather jacket coupled with denim serves as my traveling outfit of choice. Soft and supple, the leather conforms to every movement, unlike past jackets I’ve owned that have maintained rigidity and structure. The…
Myrtle Beach has finally arrived. We leave tomorrow morning, bright and early. What I’m looking forward to most? The food. Myrtle Beach seems to have an endless supply of beach restaurants and small shops. (Thanks for all your input!) What I’m dreading? The drive. All 9 hours of it. So wish me luck and have…
