BOULANGERIE NORTH HEAD BAKERY
Hearth breads, Craft and Community since 1988
The illustration is taken from the recipe for pain brioché published by the Institut National de la Boulangerie on its Cannelle.com web site. We have been making this bread for 15 years or more, in the form shown, which is known locally as panrolls or, more colourfully, pan 'o rolls. From the same dough we have made during the same span of time , dinner buns, pan bread, raisin bread, kaisers, and, rarely, pain tressé (braided breads) and pains fantasies. The appelation, brioché, refers by French custom to a dough which contains a minimum of 10% fresh eggs by weight of flour.
