Chocolate Brioche with a salted top and chocolate swirls inside the dough!
Brioche is one of those breads that'll make me go to at least three stores to find it. But it's the best for recipes like bread pudding, french toast and grilled cheese sandwiches (I swear) so the search is usually worth it. But let's think about how salted chocolate brioche might taste, like yums!This time I decided to make my own. Making bread is always satisfying with time being the hardest ingredient to find. After all, bread is usually just flour, water, yeast and salt all of which you probably have in the cupboard.
But the time it takes to rise and develop into a dough worthy of being ripped apart and drenched in butter is a little more of an antsy period for me.
I planned to make regular brioche, if there even is such a thing when talking about a dough rich with eggs and sugar. But I had some leftover chocolate from making into the dough it went. I waited until after the first rise and rolled the dough out like you would when making cinnamon buns.
The chocolate was chopped into slivers and spread all over the sheet of brioche. I rolled the dough back up into a loaf shape and let it rise for a second time, but this time in the baking pan. The final result was a sweet and salty chocolate bread that made some really good Sunday morning french toast!
