Pogne de Romans

Pogne de Romans

Pogne de Romans is a kind of brioche lightly flavoured with orange and rum. It originated in Romans-sur-Isère, a town in south-east France.

This recipe dates back to medieval times, when it was made in a ring (or crown) shape to celebrate the end of Lent, as eggs could then be used again.

This more contemporary version is not particularly tricky, though it takes a long time for all the kenading and resting stages.

Remarks

Do not be surprised if all the kneading and resting times in this recipe seem excessive. This is because there is hardly any yeast, and the long resting time also develops the flavour we are aiming for.
