You know some stores discount their stock with little yellow stickers (in the case of Sainsbury's) Well, in our household these used to be called "Nanny's Signature" - because she could never resist them, as her groaning freezer would attest to.
So. I think she'd approve of this...
Brioche's by the way.
Always surprises me they stock so many Brioche type things - especially up here in the Frozen North where Franceland is another World away!
I always have stale bread in my house, if you ever need any, I will give it to you for free.
I was trying to find a funny bread item to share with the group so I googled 'bread funny' and got 30O search results and not one of them included any mention of this, so it can't have been funny, I suspected as much at the time:
...which makes 74 episodes over 5 years a complete waste of licence fee payers' money!
I Food be the music of love? Then we'd all be a lot messier!
Brioche is one of those things, like Madeleines that we just can't do. Pop over to France (and yes - I will be getting back to you on that one Trubbs) and you can buy half a bin bag of Madeleines for about 50c! What do we get over here? 6 if you're lucky - and like British Brioches AND Bagels! they are the equivalent of various different varieties of FOAM RUBBER!!!
I mean! How hard can they be to make!!!!!!
Bagels. Now there's entirely different kettle of bread type fish.
Actually, I kind of know this - as I've used a Madeleine recipe myself. Sad to say, because my oven is rubbish - they weren't fabulous either. Oh yes, better than shop bought, just rubbish.
My oven is a Neff. A left over from the previous occupier. It is also - what Professor Yaffle of Bagpuss Fame would choose.
They are (I heard a rumour) supposed to be quality items!
The first time I ran a J Cloth across my "Quality Neff Oven" All the numbers on the buttons came off on the cloth!!!
