Brioche Wool Roll Bread


I was really curious about this trending Wool Roll bread I saw everywhere on social media, first inspired from Apron (youtube). I used a different recipe from the original video as recently I love the rich buttery Brioche bread. I do think the wool roll adds a nice touch to the normal loaf and is quite pretty =). Do check out the original video for the shaping technique. Here is my modified recipe using Brioche dough. I am sharing this as there was quite a number of queries on the recipe after my Instagram post. I really love the rich buttery flavour and soft texture =).

Brioche Wool Roll Bread
105g Bread Flour
1.5g salt
6g castor sugar
1 cold egg (52g)
2g instant yeast
19g cold milk
32g unsalted butter, cold cut into cubes

1. Combine all ingredients except butter and salt in a mixing bowl. Using the dough hook, mix at low speed for 3 mins, then 6 mins at medium speed. Check for window pane by stretching a small piece of dough. Increase by intervals of 1 min until the window pane stage is reached. You can also knead by hand.

2. Add in salt and butter and mix for another 3-5 mins till well-combined and dough is smooth.

3. Give the dough a few folds and round into a ball. Cover lightly with clingwrap or damp cloth and allow to ferment for 1 hr (bulk fermentation).

4. Divide the dough into 3, round each piece into a ball and allow to rest for 10 min (bench time).

5. Use a rolling pin to roll each ball into an oval/rectangle, then use a knife or scraper to cut half of the dough into strips. Roll up the dough starting from the side with no strips. Place the first piece of rolled dough into a lightly greased 8x4-inch loaf pan, then repeat for the other two dough pieces.

6. Proof lightly covered at room temperature for 30 mins or until dough doubles in size and fills up the loaf pan.

7. Lightly egg wash and sprinkle with sugar (optional).  

8. Bake at 210oC for 14 mins till golden brown and loaf sounds hollow when tapped.

Hope you will enjoy this delicious loaf!

With love,
