Currant Brioche

        Yesterday not knowing what to make for pudding I sat down in front of the computer and started browsing from one page to another for the perfect dessert when I remembered I saw these a few days ago. So I looked for the recipe again and got to work. At the end I couldn't believe my eyes how quickly they disappeared from the table.

   - 300g plain flour
   - 1 tsp dry yeast
   - 50g butter
   - 1 egg plus on egg yolk
   - 120 ml milk
   - 35g sugar
   - a pinch of salt
   - 2 tbsp oil
   - a handful of currants

        Put the flour into a large bowl then add the eggs, butter (heated to room temperature), sugar and the pinch of salt. Dissolve the yeast in warm milk and let it ferment for a couple of minutes then add it to the rest of the ingredients and mix well until you get a soft dough. After add one tbsp of oil and knead the mixture until it no longer stick to your hands, in a greased bowl leave it to rise in a warm place for an hour.

          When the dough has risen add the other tbsp of oil and knead again for 1-2 minutes, scatter the currants on the work surface and keep kneading until they are evenly spread throughout the dough.

        Divide the dough into 12 equal balls and put them into a greased muffin tray. Leave it to rise in the tray for 30 minutes in a warm place.

        When they risen above the tray, brush with the egg yolk and a tbsp of milk mixture then place in the preheated oven at 170C/325F/gas mark 3 for 15 minutes then turn it down to 150C/300F/gas mark 2 and leave it for another 10 minutes.

        When done take out of the tray on a tea towel and let them cool down, serve with butter, strawberry jam, simple or why not vanilla cream.
