Rich, white rolls filled with brown sugar and blueberries, dusted with powdered sugar. The picture looks delicious- I can't wait to try it! From Saveur magazine.
- 2 1⁄4 teaspoons yeast (1 pack)
- 2 tablespoons sugar
- 1⁄4 cup warm water
- 1 1⁄2 cups light brown sugar (divided)
- 1 cup warm milk
- 10 tablespoons butter, softened
- 3 tablespoons golden syrup (or corn syrup)
- 2 eggs
- 2 egg yolks (or another egg)
- 6 cups flour
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
- 1 1⁄2 cups blueberries (fresh or frozen)
- powdered sugar (for dusting)
- In a large bowl, dissolve yeast and plain sugar in warm water. After 10 minutes, add 3/4 cup of the brown sugar, the milk, butter, syrup, and eggs/yolks. Stir well, add flour and salt.
- Form a rough ball and knead until smooth. Grease a bowl with oil, add the dough and let rise 1 hour.
- Place dough on a floured surface and knead briefly. Roll out into a 10x16 rectangle, sprinkle with blueberries and remaining brown sugar. Roll tightly. Cut into 12 even slices, and squeeze into muffin pans (use two 6 hole pans so that they have room to expand.).
- Set aside to rise 15 minutes while your oven preheats to 350. Bake 35 minutes, till golden. Cool, dust with powdered sugar.
I made these for DH to take to work today and the whole office LOVED these and were so impressed. They are not terribly hard to put together and the texture of the brioche is phenomenal. I added white chocolate chips to half before rolling. They are wonderful!
Wonderful breakfast! I ended up having to put in about 1 cup more flour and used 3 eggs instead of the extra 2 egg yolks. These came out HUGE!! I had a hard time stuffing them into the muffin cups. I could probably make 18-24 out of them. Thanks for the recipe!
These turned out so very nice. My daughter is on a blueberry kick, so I was excited to find this. Very easy recipe. Used frozen blueberries. The dusting of powdered sugar is very nice. Thanks for a great recipe!
