Quick Brioche Ring with Cinnamon-Walnut Filling
Why This Recipe Works
We wanted to streamline the traditional brioche recipe so it wouldn't scare off home cooks. We found that the brioche recipe could be shortened considerably by eliminating the sponge in favor of a one-step mixing method and by either shortening or eliminating the first rise. Only the final rise before baking had to be maintained, as it was essential to the texture and flavor of the pastry.
