Brioche with cherry marmalade Directions

  1. For this recipe I used the cherry marmalade from Monte Rè. The marmalade is delicious: very sweet, but balanced by the slightly sour taste of cherries. Dark and intense in color. The consistency is dense and full of fruit pieces.

  2. In a bowl combine flour, active dry yeast yeast and sugar.

  3. Begin to work the dough gradually adding eggs and warm milk, orange zest and finally butter (I used Lurpak butter) cut into small pieces. Knead the dough for about 10 minutes until it becomes smooth and elastic even if slightly sticky. Lay the dough in a greased bowl and let it rise for about 2 hours or until it doubles the volume. The rising times are approximate, it can take more or less time depending on the temperature of the environment, the freshness of the yeast, the strength of the flour and other factors not related to the recipe.

  4. Deflate the dough and divide it into 5 equal parts. Roll out the first piece of dough in a disc, about couple of milimeters in hight, and spread it with 1 tablespoon of marmalade.

  5. Cover the first layer of dough with a second disk cover it with more marmalade. Continue in this way with other pieces, leaving the last disc not coated on the surface (as in the picture), then take a pizza cutter or a sharp knife and divide the brioche into 8 wedges.

  6. Take the tip of the first layer from one of the wedges and fold it on itself, hiding the tip under the edge (as in the picture). Continue in this way with the other layers and with the other segments.
