BBA challenge marches on. There's been some discussion about pacing on this challenge, whether to stick to the schedule, slow up, or just bake at a rapid pace. Some bakers in the group seem to have strong competitive streaks. I have one, but it doesn't really apply to things like this. As a member of several other groups with rigid deadlines, I like baking my BBA whenever I feel like it, or whenever we have no vehicles for peanut butter.
This brioche was one of three variations in the book--from richest to poorest. I went with the poorest, which still has plenty of butter and milk and egg, added some whole wheat flour, and got a soft, billowy, rich bread perfect for toast or eating with milk. Looking forward to some more robust breads, but not anytime too soon. Next up, challah.
