Brioche is a French bread and is enjoyed by many. Classic Brioche consists of eggs, butter, yeast, and flour. It sounds like a simple to make bread, but there is a catch, it’s time! Making brioche consumes time, not the kneading part, kneading takes 10 minutes, but the proofing takes almost 12 hours.
If you have been following my blog for sometimes, you know by now that patience is a virtue I have but not when it comes to baking and cooking.
Do you remember my previous post, French Croissant? Usually, to make croissant, you have to proof the dough for 8 to 9 hours, that wasn’t the case in my recipe. The proofing time was tremendously short yet the outcome was what you would get from a French Bakery.
Less Proofing Time Brioche Bread Recipe
Today, I’m saving your time by skipping the overnight proofing, not only that but I will introduce a new way to making your Classic Brioche recipe healthier and tastier, and that’s by adding date nectar instead of sugar, it will make your brioche buns perfect!
If you feel comfortable using sugar to make brioche then use half sugar and half date nectar instead.
The date nectar brand I used was D’VASH. D’VASH uses organic California dates, it’s Non-GMO, Vegan, fat-free, 25% less sugar than honey, and is a great source of antioxidants.
You can get the date nectar in sticks which are easy to carry in your bag, and use instead of sugar for your coffee or tea, the product is available in a bottle too.
You must be thinking “How this classic brioche turned out since the proofing time is short (4 hours)?” and “Why did you use date nectar when the original recipe calls for sugar?”.
Let me assure you that by following my recipe you will have a light, fluffy, delicious, and classic version of French Brioche bread.
This rich and delicious bread is great for making french toast. Make your bread pudding a heavenly dessert by using brioche bread and add your favorite mix of spices.
How to Make Brioche Bread?
In short, all you have to do is, mix all the ingredients, knead for 10 minutes, cover and allow the dough to rise for two hours in warm place.
Shape the dough into three equal size balls, place the balls in the baking pan and let it rise again for two hours. Baking time is 25 minutes. That is a piece of cake, right?
One last thought about this beautiful loaf (brioche), it is a rich bread, so take it easy!
