FFwD: bubble-top brioche rolls

  

This week the recipe chosen from Dorie Greenspans book: around my French table was: bubble-top brioche rolls.
And due to the holidays my kids had vacation, and they love to help. Luckily this recipe was easy, so the youngest one helped. He kneaded the dough, cut the dough, rolled the little balls and I finally baked them (He's just three, so that's a littlebit to dangerous). And  offcourse he ate the brioche rolls. And they tasted very good. He was complimented a lot by all of us.
For the good baking of the recipe of course, the recipe was from Dorie and that's the start.
But for a three year old a very good job.

This is a recipe I'm going to make a lot more in the near future. A real sunday morning tread. The rolls were fluffy, creamy and had the right taste. And they looked great.
Also it was a very easy recipe. The only trick (I hadn't seen it until Thursday, when I wanted to finish this recipe) is that the dough should rest overnight.
So we made them for the lunch on Friday instead of Thursday. I already baked bread for Thursday so that wasn't a big problem at all.

Next week we're blogging about monsieur jacques armagnac chicken (sounds great isn't it?), but if you want to know what the other FFwD-cooks made of this recipe, you can look at:

Your son sounds like a budding chef, his rolls look delicious :-)

Awwww. Love the pictures of those little hands working the dough :-) Have to start them out young!
They look beautiful - and I am sure the jam was heavenly on them.

Beautiful rolls and those sweet little hands rolling the balls, family baking at it's very best! Have a wonderful week;-)

Three cheers for your three-year-old. He should feel very accomplished that he's done something many adults have never tried. Glad it all worked out!

Candy said...

I love the photos with the sweet little hands!

How lovely to be able to make these with your 3 yo - such fun! The end result looks delicious.

Maybe there is a future baker in the family. It's fun to see the little ones
have a interest in cooking. Tricia's son was cooking with me a few years back, and we had a ball. Turned out some very good recipes too. He is
now a teenager and things change, but it was fun while it lasted. I loved
this recipe and will make it again, perhaps even trying the loaves.

Your three year old put me to shame!

Your son must have had a wonderful time helping with the edible "modeling compound". How great to share your love of baking with him from such an early age.

What a fun time in the kitchen you must have had! I love your photos, especially the one with your three-year-old's hands. Your brioche turned out lovely.

Looks like a fun afternoon with your son. I should have started earlier in the day so that I could have used my kids!

Your son must be quite talented. I couldn't have accomplished such a nice result when I was 3, even with my mom's help! I like the way you split the top off the roll before spreading the jam. I was breaking into thirds which wasn't so tidy.
