2 Pains briochés aux raisins : Photo of step #2Roll out 700 g Brioche dough into a large square 1/2 cm (1/4 inch) thick. 2 min.
3 Pains briochés aux raisins : Photo of step #3Trim off the side of the square nearest to you with a large knife to give a straight edge. 3 min.
4 Pains briochés aux raisins : Photo of step #4Spread 700 g Confectioner's custard (Crème pâtissière, or French pastry cream) evenly all over the dough. Use a palette-knife, if you have one, as it will make this easier. 5 min.
5 Pains briochés aux raisins : Photo of step #5Spread the raisins evenly on top. 3 min.
6 Pains briochés aux raisins : Photo of step #6Then roll the dough up.
