THIS BREAD! It is incredible toast. It is even better French Toast! It is more sweet and that orange is sending me! The turmeric adds the beautiful yellow color and it is also very anti-inflammatory. The orange zest has 3 times more vitamin C than what is inside the orange! The orange zest and turmeric are loaded with antioxidants and being paired with the fresh milled wheat, makes this bread not just delicious but also very nourishing. I hope you make this! It is so special!
Fresh Milled Turmeric Orange Brioche
5 cups fresh milled hard white wheat (608 grams)
1/2 cup pure maple syrup
1/2 tbsp salt
6 tbs melted butter
2 tbsp gluten
1 1/2 tbs yeast
1 1/2 cup warm milk
1/2 tbsp turmeric
zest of one orange
2 egg whites
1. Mill the grain between a bread and pastry setting. Add all the wet ingredients and salt to the bread pan first. Add the flour, salt, gluten, turmeric, and orange zest. Make little well in the flour and add the yeast.
2. Knead the dough in the zojurishi bread machine using a custom setting. My custom setting kneads the dough for 20 minutes, and has a first rise for 45 minutes. Skip to step 4.
If you don't have a bread machine, you can use a mixer!
3. Knead for 15 minutes in a kitchen aid with dough hook attachment. You want the dough to peel off the sides. Its okay if the dough seems wet. Cover the bowl with a tea towel (use one of my handmade ones!) and let it rise for 45 minutes. It will double in size.
4. Punch the dough down and turn out onto a floured surface. Weigh the dough and divide it into 4 even dough balls. Do the pinch and tuck method for each ball. Roll the dough out into a 6-8 inch circle. Fold it like an envelope. Then roll the dough. Place them seam side down in a pullman loaf pan. Brush with egg wash. Cover with a tea towel and put in a warm place. Let them rise another 20 minutes. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Bake for 35 minutes or until internal temperature reaches 190 degrees.
Let it cool and enjoy!!
