Stage 11

Stage 12

Stage 13 - 7 min.

Leave in a warm place to rest for 1 hour 30 minutes.

Preheat the oven to 360°F (180°C).

If you wish, you can snip the top of the brioche with scisors to help it rise in the oven.

Stage 17 - 30 min.

Bake for about 30 minutes.

Stage 18

Leave to cool on a wire rack.

Remarks

The proportion of chestnut flour may appear small, but this is necessary: any more and the brioche will not rise properly.

It is important at step 8 to cook the apples well, otherwise, when rolled into the dough, they will give off steam during baking and create unsightly holes in the brioche.

Keeping:

Several days, preferably in a cloth bag.
