Brioches Diamants

I rarely bloghop towards the french blogs, dunno why i never spend my time there as i do with Indian blogs. But when i crossed this event called Defi Boulange about baking breads, i immediately joined the group and prepared this cute looking beautiful brioches. Every month two french bloggers will give their bread details with their stepwise pictures,whoever joined the group have to prepare the bread and post it with their pictures on their facebook page.

For this month's challenge, we need to bake this brioches diamants. Seriously i loved preparing this brioche and they vanished very much quickly. My kids,once they saw this brioches for their snacks, they were very much excited and told that these brioches looks like the brioches we get rarely from our nearby bakery. Watelse a home baker like me need,i have to say big thanks to Nadia and Manue for pulling me to make these beauties.


3cups Bread flour or all purpose flour
1tbsp Active dry yeast
1/2cup Milk (luke warm)
3nos Egg yolks
1/4cup Sugar +1tsp Sugar
1tsp Salt
100grms Butter
Sugar pearls
Chopped chocolate chunks
1no Egg yolk +1tbsp water (for brushing)


Mix the yeast,a teaspoon of sugar and salt to the luke warm milk, keep aside until the yeast turns foamy.

Meanwhile take the flour,egg yolks,sugar in a large bowl, add gradually the foamy yeast and turn everything as a soft dough, now add the butter and knead everything for 10minutes.

Arrange the dough in a bowl covered with a towel,keep aside for atleast for 2hours until they double their volume.

Knead the dough again for few minutes, divide the dough as 5-6 equal balls.


Roll the ball as oval shaped disc,with a knife cut the rolled disc as shown in a picture. Take care not to cut the edges.

Sprinkle the chopped chocolate chunks and sugar pearls as per need.

Roll the disc as a log and roll it again as round shaped brioche.

Finish all the brioche balls as shown in the picture and arrange over a greased baking sheet,let it sit for half an hour in warm place.

Preheat the oven to 350F,brush the top of the brioche with the egg yolk and sprinkle the sugar pearls over it.

Bake in middle rack for 20-25minutes until the crust turns golden brown.

Enjoy!!
