Brioche 2011 and mis en place for a Heavenly Cake


Well, the cake is not done yet. Here is some brioche I made recently though, for the Shavuout holiday. I have come to the conclusion that Rose's Brioche Recipe is the best! I have made several versions of brioche from 'The Bread Baker's Apprentice' and Rose's is just all that much better.

This is about as far as I got tonight. Mis en place! I'll have to try and finish tomorrow.

And here are some random flowers from our new neighborhood. I was disappointed to see that the fancy big suburban supermarket in our new dig has mostly cake mixes, whereas the overcrowded urban store in our old brooklyn neighborhood had what I can consider now a nice selection of baking supply goods.   

Rose! If you are reading this, we still are only 1/2 hour drive from brooklyn in West Hempstead, LI! You are welcome to drop by anytime. :)


  1. I'm not surprised Rose's recipe is better ;). Hope you and the family are liking your new place.

  2. Mendy ... How lovely.....! Your flowers are gorgeous! Wishing you and your family many happy days in your new abode.
    Outstanding brioche!
