Cranberry La Brioche Feuilletee 红梅布莉歐千层酥皮



For the past couple of months, I've been busy with my herman baby. Too sad that I really don't have time for them anymore and have to freeze them for awhile. However, I still have plenty of instant yeast in the fridge that need to be sort out. And recently, I was inspired by this gorgeous pastry page, click to see here. It was astonishing ! Since this is my favourite thing to do, I shall start without hesitation..Please read on for more.

Ingredients :
250gm   bread flour/high protein flour
250gm   all purpose flour
100gm   dried cranberries, chopped
1-1/2 TB   instant yeast
2-1/2 TB   sugar
3 large eggs
150ml   full cream milk
1 tspn    salt
50gm   cold butter, diced
**300gm   cold butter for folding process
**egg glazing :  1 yolk mixed with 1 tspn  milk

Method :
(1)  combine both flour, sugar, yeast, cranberries, eggs & milk then stir to form a soft dough.
(2)  now, add in salt & butter and continued kneading till smooth & non-sticky then set aside to rest for an hour or till double in size.
(3)  once ready, punch dough to release excess air and kmead till smooth again.
(4)  place dough to slightly floured working table, roll to flatten dough into 26x12" sheet.
(5)  sliced cold butter to cover half portion of flattened dough, as picture shown here. Fold the other half dough over butter and keep the edges nicely sealed.
(6)  next, roll filled dough into 26x12" sheet again then fold both the shorter edge to meet at the center.  Now again, fold the other half over one half to generate a 4 folding layer, as seen here. Finally, cover dough with plastic sheet & keep refrigerated for 30 minutes till butter is chilled and set. This is to prevent melting butter from messing up the dough.
(7) repeat the folding process for another 2 more round then keep chilled for 45 minutes after the final touch up.

(8)  once its ready,  roll chilled dough into 26x15" sheet, trim off the edges (about half inche each) then divide into 3 portions (about 4" height 24" length).
(9)  greased two 4x4x9" tray lined with parchment paper each, then place one & a half piece of pastry sheet to tray by flipping into snake like curl shape, as picture shown above.
(10)  let to rest for another 45 minutes or till double in size as picture shown below.

(11)  now, brush dough with egg glazing and then bake at preheated oven 210'C for about 25 minutes or till golden brown
.
Love exactly how this brioche turns out. I used the leftover trimmed edges to make cruffin and it turns out as gorgeous.

Brioche is something that is made with lots of eggs & butter. And that is why the texture is so light & fluffy. I can polish one whole loaf all by myself. Hope you guys will love it too ! Happy baking.
