Simple Mixing and No Kneading Brioche

Simple Mixing and No Kneading Brioche

I could be the laziest baker ever.  When brioche can be mixed simply and not require the painfully messy kneading of warm butter, I’m in!   Just because traditional methods have been converted to stand mixers, it doesn’t mean breads need to be processed traditionally.  Brioche
