How To Make Brioche Chocolate Recipe?

  • Prepare Time: 20 minutes
  • Cooking Time: 30 minutes
  • Total Time: 2 hours (including proofing and resting time)
  • Serving Size: 8 servings

Ingredients:

  • 4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 packet active dry yeast (about 2 1/4 teaspoons)
  • 1/2 cup warm milk
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 egg (for egg wash)
  • 1 tablespoon water (for egg wash)

Directions:

Step 1: Proof the Yeast

In a small bowl, combine warm milk and 1 teaspoon of sugar. Sprinkle the active dry yeast over the milk mixture and let it sit for about 5 minutes until it becomes frothy.

Step 2: Mix Dry Ingredients

Whisk together the flour, remaining sugar, and salt in a large mixing bowl. Create a well in the center of the dry ingredients.

Step 3: Combine Wet Ingredients

In a separate bowl, beat 4 eggs lightly. Pour the frothy yeast mixture and beaten eggs into the well of the dry ingredients.

Step 4: Knead the Dough

Using a stand mixer with a dough hook attachment or by hand, knead the mixture until it forms a soft and smooth dough. Gradually add the softened butter while kneading until fully incorporated.

Step 5: Add Chocolate Chips

Gently fold in the chocolate chips into the dough until they are evenly distributed.

Step 6: First Proofing

Place the dough in a lightly greased bowl and cover it with a clean kitchen towel or plastic wrap. Allow the dough to rise in a warm, draft-free area for about 1 hour or until it doubles in size.

Step 7: Shape the Brioche

Punch down the risen dough to release excess air. Divide the dough into 8 equal portions. Shape each portion into a ball and arrange them in a greased 9×13-inch baking pan.

Step 8: Second Proofing

Cover the baking pan with the kitchen towel or plastic wrap and let the brioche dough rise for another 30 minutes.

Step 9: Preheat the Oven

While the brioche is proofing for the second time, preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C).

Step 10: Prepare Egg Wash

Whisk the remaining egg and water in a small bowl to create the egg wash.

Step 11: Apply Egg Wash

Brush the brioche tops with egg wash to give them a shiny finish when baked.

Step 12: Bake

Place the pan in the oven and bake for 25-30 minutes or until the brioche turns golden brown.

Step 13: Cool and Serve

Remove the brioche from the oven and let them cool on a wire rack. Once cooled, serve and enjoy the delightful Brioche Chocolate! They are perfect as a breakfast treat or a delightful dessert. Store any leftovers in an airtight container for a few days. Reheat slightly before serving for the best experience.

How do you eat brioche chocolate?

Brioche chocolate tastes great when toasted. They can also be used to make a fantastic sandwich with chocolate spread and fresh berries.

The bread is a little crumbly, so you need to want something that will hold it together. The chocolate spread works perfectly for this.

Can you warm up chocolate brioche?

Yes, you can. I always think of brioche as cold bread, but since we live in the summer, I recommend toasting it as warm bread. This will also add extra flavor to the bread and make it more pleasing to the taste buds.

Brioche can also be turned into sandwiches with fresh fruit and jam or used as a base for desserts such as chocolate fondant or cake.

Why does brioche last so long?

Brioche is amazing for storing as it keeps for a long time. You can enjoy this bread for about five days though you may get a little stale after that.

According to the recipe on Allrecipes, this bread will keep at room temperature for 2 to 3 days, in the refrigerator for up to 5 days, and in the freezer for over a week.

How much baking soda should I use with brioche?

You would normally use 1 tablespoon of baking soda per loaf of bread to help it rise. This is a very small amount. Using a stand mixer, you will only need to use 1/3 cup instead of 1 tablespoon.

Why is brioche different from bread?

The main difference between bread and brioche is the addition of eggs. Typically, bread has no eggs, and you would use milk instead. This can change the taste of bread drastically.

How much flour should I use?

Normally, with a stand mixer such as a Kitchen Aid (or another brand), you will need to use 2 tablespoons of flour per loaf of bread. With a handheld mixer, you will only need 1/3 cup of flour to make one loaf.

Final Word

Overall, this is a very good recipe and comes from a trusted source (Allrecipes). I am not sure what flour to use when making brioche, but the Allrecipes website suggests that you can use all-purpose bread or pastry.

I know that you should only use 100% real butter in your brioche recipe; otherwise, it will not taste as good. I hope you all enjoy this awesome recipe.

I know I did!  Until next time, cheers and happy baking! You can purchase the brioche flour online at Allrecipes or your local supermarket.
