These Sticky Date Brioche Buns are based on the No Knead Brioche recipe we made way back a year or so ago. The buns are filled with dates and brown sugar that caramelises as it cooks and creates heavenly warm oozey buns. Imagine that for brunch or morning tea….
This is where no knead bread is such fun. This recipe for brioche is just like magic.
Brioche is a bread made with eggs and butter and is lightly sweet. It’s a bit of a luxury bread, and time consuming made the traditional way. This is only slightly inferior to a traditionally made loaf. It can be eaten as a savoury bread or as these Sticky Date Brioche Buns. Woohoo these are the best. Not only is this bread easy but the dough itself lasts about a week in the fridge unbaked. That means you can make it a couple at a times…
To help you along with this recipe I have included a short video of some of the process shots.
