. Leave to rest for 1 hour at room temperature.
Meanwhile, shape the 120 g
sheets of plastic
into a square about 4x4 inches (10 x 10 cm).
This is the same idea as for
(though with less butter). You can see how to do it in this video.
Stage 5 -
Once the butter is in the right shape, put it in the fridge.
Stage 6 -
After the dough has rested for about an hour, "break" it: lift it and let it fall back heavily into the bowl (like knocking back a firmer dough, this releases the gas).
Stage 7 -
Gather the dough into a ball once more, cover the bowl with the plastic film again and refrigerate overnight.
Stage 8 -
Stage 9 -
Roll out the brioche dough into a large rectangle. This needs to be the same width as the square of butter and twice as long.

the top a second time.
Stage 22 -
Bake for 30 to 40 minutes.
This must be turned out hot, before the caramel sets in the bottom of the tin. Your brioche is ready. Remarks
This brioche can be cut in the normal way but, as you can see, it is ideal for serving in "rustic" fashion, by simply pulling off pieces.
For a fancier version, more like little cookies, make a slimmer roll of dough and slice it thinner (about 1/4 inch, 1/2 cm). The amounts in the recipe will then make 2 brioches rather than just one. It is important to use granulated sugar, as it absorbs less water from the dough and the butter than caster sugar. You will be less likely to end up with liquid in the bottom of the tin at step 19.
