Festive snowflake brioche – Christmas is approaching fast and I’m not sure I’m ready yet!
A full-bodied Autumnal cake, and the equivalent of a big, warm, enveloping hug. The edges are golden brown, caramelised and chewy, while the inside is dark, moist and packed with flavours that linger on the tongue.
