I knew going into making this brioche that it wouldn’t turn out.
Not because the recipe is flawed, but because I was making it at night, trying to cram it all in before bed. I was doing so well until it came to the last rise.
While the bread was on it’s last rise, I made dinner. Then ate dinner. Then fell asleep on the couch. The bread had risen too much, collapsed in on itself and I was too tired to deal with it then so I put it in the fridge to deal with the next day.
I let it come to room temp and then baked it. It wasn’t pretty. It was pretty hard and smelled like melting cheese(?) but again, I had no patience to deal with it. It tasted ok, but I know that I was missing the whole package because of my oopsy.
So, my lesson: do NOT bake when I’m tired. Just don’t.
I will be trying my hand at this bread again because it looks too good not to.
The awesome Margaret of Tea and Scones chose this recipe for this week’s TWD. Head on over to her blog for the recipe. (Click here for direct link)

Even though you might not think so, I still think it looks pretty. And I bet it still tastes good. 🙂 Can’t wait to see what it looks like when you’re not tired. 😉
I was rushing to cram this recipe in yesterday (oops, there’s an overnight rest?) and didn’t have the best results either. We’ll have to make it again together in the future! 🙂
Looks fab despite the ‘disaster’!
Well, you tried, right? Doesn’t look bad at all to me.
Bummer that you slept through this one. It stil looks pretty good, though!
Sounds like something I would do! The brioche does look yummy slathered in jam. I hope you’ll try it again – it’s totally worth it.
