I had some chocolate eggs left from Easter, so I thought I could use them to fill some nice brioches that I wanted to make, why not? They are perfect for a nice weekend breakfast, so I rolled up my sleeves and got started.
They are very simple to make, but you also have to be patient since the dough has to double its volume but it´s worth it seeing the final results. These have the shape of a muffin but is a sweet bread texture.
You will need the following ingredients:
55 gr of melted butter
250 gr of flour
a pinch of salt
3-4 tablespoons of sugar
1 sachet of baking powder
2 beaten eggs
First mix the dry ingredients: sift the flour together with the baking powder add the salt, the sugar and mix well. With your hands make a hole in the middle and add the liquid ingredients: the melted butter and beaten eggs.
Knead well for a few minutes, make a ball and let it rest in a clean bowl for at least 1 hour and half until it doubles in volume.
After this time, knead again and then start making little balls and put them in the mold (previously greased), put a piece of chocolate on top and then make another ball with the dough to place it ot top. You can ´glue´ the two parts together using some milk.
Cover the brioches with plastic film and let them rest in a warm place for at least 1 hour and a half.
Brush the brioches with beaten egg, you can also put some sugar on top. Preheat the oven at 200º C and bake them for about 12-15 minutes.
I love to eat them when they are still slightly warm and the chocolate inside is still molten!
Have a nice day!
