I used this brioche recipe to make a recipe from the food network show Barefoot Contessa called Summer Pudding. I made the brioche twice and found that I preferred using a little more sugar and 2 teaspoons of yeast. For the summer pudding, I made a syrup with a couple packages of fresh frozen mixed berries, water, corn starch and brandy extract, then layered it with slices of de-crusted brioche, weighted it and set it overnight. The results were spectacular! I served this at my neice's baby blessing reception to rave reviews. Since the majority of the moisture in the dough comes from fat, the brioche makes the pudding rich and utterly delicious. I wouldn't recommend eating brioche plain, but in a dessert or with a stew, amazing! Great job, Linda!
