Crafting Your Chocolate Brioche Bread

Mixing the Magic | In a mixer’s bowl, combine sugar, milk, and fresh yeast, mixing lightly with a whisk. Add the flour and let it sit for 15 minutes. After 15 minutes, add eggs and vanillins, beating with a mixer. Gradually add the butter while continuing to beat until the dough forms.

Shaping and Baking | Shape the dough into a ball, make a cross-shaped cut on the dough’s surface, and leave it to rise. Divide the dough into two equal parts. Roll out one part and spread hazelnut praline evenly. Roll it into a log and join the ends to form a knot. Repeat the process for the second piece of dough, or use jam instead of hazelnut praline. Whisk an egg and brush it over the dough. Preheat your oven to 320°F (160°C) and bake your chocolate brioche bread for 30-35 minutes until it’s beautifully golden brown and irresistibly fragrant.
