Sliced brioche with Nutella® and candied citrus fruits
25 g Brewer's yeast
150 ml Water
250 g 00 Plain flour
250 g Manitoba flour
6 Egg yolks
100 g Butter
80 g Sugar
40 ml Milk
Candied citrus fruits to taste
120g Nutella® – 1 heaped tsp of Nutella® (15g) per portion
To prepare this delicious recipe, 15g of Nutella® per person is enough to enjoy!
On the work surface, make a pile of the 00 flour, in the middle add the brewer's yeast which you previously crumbled and dissolved in water. Knead together to create a homogenous, smooth mixture.
Put it aside to rise for 40 minutes, covered with a tea towel. Afterwards, mix again adding the Manitoba flour, 5 egg yolks, the butter (after it has been melted and then allowed to cool), sugar, milk, candied citrus fruits and a pinch of salt. Knead the dough to homogenise everything, then cover it with a tea towel and let it rise for another 2 hours.
After the necessary time has passed, briefly knead the dough once again on the floured work surface. If you intend to use it for one single brioche, put it in a buttered and floured mould approximately 10 cm deep and 18 cm in diameter. Brush with some milk and bake in a pre-heated oven at 180°C for 10 minutes and then at 160°C for another 20 minutes. Cut the brioche into slices and garnish with Nutella® and candied citrus fruits.
