Whole Wheat Brioche

Since, so far in my baking adventures, I've never made brioche....gasp... I decided to keep it fairly simple. Hamburgers were on the menu for dinner, so buns were on the menu to bake. They came out really nice, great texture and very delish with the burgers. I only mixed up a half batch of dough, so with the rest I made a loaf. MJOL will like that for toast with breakfast.

I have to say that I really like the buttery, eggy flavor and texture of brioche. Why did I wait so long to add it to my baking ensemble? Check out what the other bakers did over at Michelle’s Big Black Dogs.

Last week the community garden hosted some students from a local school to get in the bee hives with me. It seems that bees really catch the imagination of the kids and that gives me a chance to relate the importance of the bees and their relationship to the food supply. That in turn helps establish the connection between food and the land and the land and the environment. Fun for all!

Until our next baking adventure.
