Lean Brioche Substitute

No recipe image available.This bread is nowhere near as rich and buttery as traditional brioche, but will do if you're trying to cut back on fat and cholesterol.

Recipe Ingredients:

1 (0.25-ounce) package active dry yeast or 2 1/4 teaspoons
1/2 cup warm water
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 cup powdered milk
2 tablespoons granulated sugar
1 tablespoon butter, softened
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 large eggs
1/2 cup vegetable oil

Cooking Directions:

  1. Dissolve yeast in warm water (105°F to 115°F | 40°C to 45°C).
  2. In a large bowl, combine flour, powdered milk, sugar, butter and salt. Make a well in the center and add eggs and oil; mix well. Stir in yeast mixture and mix until a dough forms. Sprinkle flour on a work surface and knead dough for a couple minutes, or until soft and elastic. Place in a lightly greased bowl, turning once to coat and cover with a towel. Allow to rise in a warm place until doubled in size, about 1 hour.
  3. Grease a 9 x 5-inch loaf pan.
  4. Punch dough down and knead for 1 minute. Flatten into a 12-inch long rectangle and roll up firmly. Place in prepared loaf pan and allow to rise in a warm place until doubled in size, about 1 hour.
  5. Meanwhile preheat oven to 350°F (175°C).
  6. Brush top with a mixture of egg white and water, if desired.
  7. Bake 25 to 30 minutes, or until top is golden brown.
