BRIOCHE BY PAUL HOLLYWOOD

Ok guys, this is the recipe. When you will try it you will die how good it is. I wanted to share it with you because maybe many of you from different countries don't know who Paul Hollywood is. I was lucky that 2 years ago when i was in Australia visiting Trent's family for Christmas i saw him on TV and loved all the pastries he was making. He is like a magician. So when we got back to Slovenia with Trent i wanted to prepare something special for NY's Eve. So i thought of Paul's recipe. We went for NY to Croatia, where the kitchen is super small, but i made it.

OMG how good was it. You have to try it, it's not difficult at all. Below is the recipe.  Enjoy :)

Ingredients

for brioche dough:

  • 250g/9oz strong flour
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 25g/1oz caster sugar
  • 5g instant yeast
  • 70ml/2½fl oz milk
  • 3 medium free-range eggs
  • 125g/4½oz unsalted butter, softened

For the filling

  • 280g/9½oz prosciutto
  • 3 tbsp cranberry sauce
  • 1 large brie (approximately 750g/1lb 10oz), cut into slices
  • 1 free-range egg, beaten, for glazing

Preparation method

  1. Place the flour into the bowl of a food mixer fitted with a dough hook. Add the salt and sugar to one side and the yeast to the other. Add the milk and eggs and mix on a slow speed for two minutes. Increase the speed and mix for a further 6-8 minutes. The dough should be glossy and elastic. 
  2. Add the softened butter and continue mixing for five minutes, scraping down the bowl periodically to ensure that the butter is thoroughly incorporated. The dough will be very soft at this stage.
  3. Place the dough into a bowl, cover and chill overnight to allow the dough to firm up.
  4. When you’re ready to assemble the pie, preheat the oven to 200C/400F/Gas 6.
  5. Tip the dough onto a lightly floured surface and fold it in on itself a few times to knock out the air. Roll the dough out to 5mm/¼in thickness and into a large circle. Lay half the prosciutto on the base. Spread the cranberry sauce over the top. Place the brie on top of the cranberry sauce. Use the remaining prosciutto to cover the brie.
  6. Stretch the dough over the ham to encase the brie and seal the edges.
  7. Turn over your brie parcel and place on a baking tray. Glaze the dough with the beaten egg. Using the back of a knife score a criss-cross pattern over the parcel. 
  8. Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until golden-brown
