Baking along with Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day by Jeff Hertzberg and Zoe Francois
Using up the leftover brioche dough.... I moved on to the next recipe: Brioche Filled with Chocolate Ganache
What a hoot! I made ganache! A veteran wordsmith, I have
been able to SPELL it forever... even knew what is was - sort of.. But
the thought of little ol' kitchen-challenged me actually making
something with that name? Well... yes, I did.... Nobody ever told me
it was just melted chocolate with some added ingredients. How fun!
course this is the first time I had to create a double boiler.. see
the photo :-) Bowl in steamer basket over boiling water. Microwave is
an option but the last time chocolate, the microwave and I got together-
it was not pretty... so I figured I had nothing to lose trying this :-)
And it worked just fine :-)
I rolled out the dough, spread half the chocolate on it and rolled it up jelly roll style..... then baked it!
Obviously messed up somewhere because the dough ended up with a hole and chocolate oozed out! But that is cosmetic, not taste - so it's all good so far for this adventure!
Poured the rest of the ganache over the top and it looks yummy!!
The chocolate itself was more bitter than we like. If I make this again, I will use a milder chocolate than the bittersweet one suggested.... but we all had fun and enjoyed tasting something new!
