Ingredients

For the dough:

500g flour

190ml lukewarm milk

3 tbsp sugar

60g melted butter

2 eggs

1 tsp salt

1 tsp yeast

For the rest:

Grated zest of a lemon

1 tub Nutella (or similar chocolate spread)

1 tbsp milk

1 tbsp water

Powdered sugar

Method

  1. Combine the yeast and sugar with lukewarm milk. Leave the yeast to activate for 3-5 minutes or until it begins to foam.
  2. Beat the eggs lightly in a medium-sized bowl, then add the flour, salt and lemon zest. Mix well, and include the butter, and yeast mixture until you have a soft dough.
  3. Dust the counter with flour, then knead the dough for 10 minutes, and place into a greased bowl. Cover and leave in a warm place and wait until it rises.
  4. Once the dough is ready, divide it into four pieces. Place the dough over a circular baking paper (as big as a plate) and roll out until 3-4mm thick. Cover the entire surface with Nutella.
  5. Roll out another ball of dough, and place it over the first layer.
  6. Cut the brioche into 16 little parts, but leave a small space in the middle. Lift and twist each segment away to create the illusion of a flower.
  7. Brush with milk, water, and one egg before baking for 20-25 minutes.
  8. Once golden brown, transfer the brioche onto a cooling rack, then dust with powdered sugar.
