Sweet tooth

I don’t know what this sudden obsession.with pastry is… But I can’t say it is a problem! Today I made brioche buns, again using Leith’s and Waldegrave’s bible. 3.5 grams Yeast was creamed with 1tsp sugar and 2tbsp water, then kneeded with 225grams flour, 4 tsp sugar, pinch of salt, 55grams melted butter and 2 beaten eggs. This was proven for one hour and then I made the dough into small circles which were proven for a further 20minutes. After 13 minutes in a 200 degree oven with a glaze made from one egg, 1tsp water and 1 tsp sugar they were perfect! I might use a bit more sugar next time, and a tad mpre butter, but they were actually delicious! Pictures below. Also, I bring you tidings of great joy: firstly, I have a new swanky camera which will be going into action asap for my photos! Secondly, we have reached the 1,400 view mark! Keep those views coming! Lets reach 2,000 as soon as we can!
