I'm going to apologize ahead of time...
I'm sorry but I'm not giving you the recipe for this lovely loaf.
But I know where to get it. And I'll let you know.....
Lemme 'splain. You see, I've been bread challenged and have had a fear of yeast for far to long. I've dabbled it the arts of bread making here and there...but not completely. And not to the point where I'm comfortable. So when I saw Michelle over at BigBlackDogs announce that she was creating an online bread club....I jumped right on that bread wagon. It's called HBinFive.
And it has a story.
Many of you may be familiar with a cookbook called Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day by Zoe Francois and Jeff Hertzberg MD. They have a very lovely website, with lots of recipes and video demos, called ArtisanBreadinFive. Well, Zoe and Jeff have come out with a new book called Healthy Bread in Five Minutes a Day. And HBinFive is going to work it's way through this new book. There are lots of members with various levels of bread experience and I plan on picking their brains and learning as much as I can. Btw...if you're interested, feel free to check it out and join in.
Anyways...in regards to the recipes, the members of HBinFive have been asked not to publish them. And as hard as that is for me as a food blogger, I will be a good girl. I'll grit my teeth...grumble and mumble a few words under my breath as I go along, but I'll do as I was asked. :D
What I will do is share the recipe link if the authors have published the recipe on their site. Sound like a deal?
Once or twice a month I will be making a different bread from the book Healthy Bread in Five Minutes a Day (which I still have to purchase or put on my wish list for Christmas). I'll share what I've learned and what I think.
Pumpkin Pie Brioche is the first recipe we've done. It was easy to make and it smelled wonderful in the oven.
The flavor didn't pull through tho. I was so disappointed.
Until the next day. Which was a little better.
And then the next day....was even better.
I'm a white bread junky so it's a little more difficult for me to appreciate the whole wheat flavor that comes through in this bread. I guess I was expecting it to taste more like a pumpkin pie. I'm just not use to whole wheat, ya know? It does taste wonderful with some maple butter. Or even some cream cheese and a little spun honey. I even heard a few members used it for french toast.....mmmmm.
If you'd like to make this lovely loaf of Pumpkin Pie Brioche, you can find the recipe ---->HERE<----
I hope you all don't mind my sharing my bread making experiences with you. Let me know if you have questions or advice along the way...as always I love to hear 'em.
Oh...and one last thing....this is a "knead-less" bread. woooo hooo
