    Eismeer's Note:

    This is a not so sweet, absolutely fluffy, buttery, scrumptious Austrian delicacy, that is usually served for breakfast and afternoon tea/coffee. It makes a very nice homemade gift/give away, that stays fresh for a couple of days and works especially well with rose hip jam and butter. Prep Time comes without resting time.

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    • 500 g flour
    • 250 ml milk
    • 20 g yeast (fresh cake works the best)
    • 2 eggs
    • 75 -100 g sugar (i prefer brown)
    • 100 g butter (melted)
    • 1 teaspoon salt
    • 1 teaspoon lemon, cest (optional)
    • 2 tablespoons almonds (slivers or "flakes")

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Warm milk to medium heat, add sugar and yeast.
    2. 2
      Stir until yeast has dissolved.
    3. 3
      Add lemon cest, if using, and 1 egg to the warm milk/yeast/sugar mixture.
    4. 4
      Sift 500g flour into a bowl and pour in milk mixture, salt and melted butter.
    5. 5
      Knead to a soft and shiny dough using a mixer or kitchen machine/food processor. The longer you knead, the better/fluffier the result.
    6. 6
      Form a ball out of dough and let rest covered with a kitchen towel until its volume has doubled (up to 1 hour guesstimate).
    7. 7
      Separate dough into 3 equal portions, knead again and form long, inch thick rounds.
    8. 8
      Braid/shape the three dough rolls like you would a pig tail.
    9. 9
      Mix the second egg with a dash of salt and 1 tsp sugar.
    10. 10
      Brush surface of dough with this mixture (keep a bit of this mixture for later) and let rest again for 30 minutes.
    11. 11
      Then bake brioche at 180°C for about 30-45 minutes. In case the surface darkens too soon, cover with aluminium foil.
    12. 12
      Take brioche out about 5 minutes before it is done and brush with the rest of the egg glaze.
    13. 13
      Sprinkle with almonds and return brioche (uncovered) to oven.
    14. 14
      Bake until done.
