Top Of The Best Brioche Pans Reviewed In 2018Last Updated February 1, 2019
№1 – Freshware CB-305RB 12-Pack Silicone Flower Reusable Cupcake and Muffin Baking Cup, Black and Red Colors
№2 – Gobel 4-Cup Brioche Mold, 8-Inch
№3 – Paderno World Cuisine 4 Inch 10-Flute Non-Stick Brioche Mold
Place 1/cups (1/ounces) of the flour, the yeast, water, and eggs into the bowl of a mixer or the bucket of your bread machine. Beat at medium speed (or knead in the bread machine) until smooth. Cover the mixture and let it sit for 4minutes.
After 4minutes, the sponge will have developed some bubbles, but not risen much because the mixture is thin. The yeast is getting a jump start.
Add the remaining 1/cups (1/ounces) flour; the sugar, and salt.
Beat for to minutes (switch to a dough hook if you’re using a mixer), or knead in the bread machine, until the dough cleans the sides of the bowl and becomes shiny and elastic.
With the mixer or bread machine running, add the soft butter tablespoons at a time, letting the butter become absorbed before adding the next chunk. Repeat until all of the butter is added.
Cover the dough and let it rise for hour. It’ll be very soft at this point, and should have grown by about a third. Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface and gently fold it over several times (use a bench knife to scrape up any bits that stick to the table). Place the dough in a greased bowl, cover the bowl, and refrigerate it for a minimum of hours and up to about 1hours. The dough will firm up considerably.
To make large brioche, remove the dough from the refrigerator, take a piece of the dough the size of a golf ball and set it aside. Form the rest into a round loaf. Grease a brioche pan and place the loaf into it. Take a small bowl and grease the inside and the outside of it; place this little bowl on top of the dough, and shape the reserved small piece of dough into a ball. Put this ball inside the bowl and allow the dough to rise for to 1/hours, until it’s an inch above the edge of the pan and looks puffy.
Preheat the oven to 375°F.
Once the dough is risen, remove the small bowl and gently replace the topknot. Whisk together the egg and water, and brush the bread with the egg glaze.
Bake for 40 minutes, until the center of the bread tests 190°F when measured with an instant-read thermometer. Check the bread after 20 minutes: if it’s browning too quickly, tent the top with aluminum foil. Traditional brioche is a very deep golden brown, as the photo illustrates, but if you want a lighter crust the foil tent will do the trick.
Remove the bread from the oven and cool on a rack for minutes before loosening the edge of the bread from the pan and tipping it out. Place the bread on a rack to finish cooling completely before slicing.
To make individual brioche, divide the dough into 1pieces. Take a marble-sized piece of dough from each of the 1pieces and set it aside. Roll each larger bit of dough into a ball; place them in greased brioche tins or paper pans. Roll the small pieces into balls. Set them aside and let them rise with the small brioche for 4minutes to hour.
When the dough has risen and is puffy-looking, preheat the oven to 375°F.
Grease your finger, and poke a “belly button” into the center of each individual brioche. Gently place the small marble of doughs into these dents, then brush the tops with egg wash.
Shape the brioches
If the dough was refrigerated, let it warm to room temperature, about hours.Butter sixteen 3-inch brioche à tête molds (use molds that are to 3-1/inches wide across the top and at least 1-1/inches high).Turn the dough out, smooth top down, onto a clean work surface. Form the dough into a ball by folding the sides into the middle at 12, 3, 6, and o’clock. Using a scale and a bench knife, divide the dough into equal pieces, about lb. oz. each. Divide each half into equal pieces of about 2-1/oz. each, for a total of 1pieces of dough. Cover the dough with plastic to prevent it from drying out.
Roll each piece of dough into a tight ball by cupping your hand over the dough and moving it in a circular motion with the fingers of that hand slightly tucked in.
To form the “tête,” or head, hold your hand perpendicular to the work surface, with your fingers straight and tightly together (like you’re going to do a karate chop). Working with one ball of dough at a time (keeping the others covered with plastic), press down onto the ball with the side of your hand about one-third of the way from one of the edges of the dough ball (leaving one-third of the dough to one side of your hand, and two-thirds of the dough to the other side of your hand). Saw back and forth with your hand almost all of the way through until you get a shape that looks like a bowling pin, or a head and body connected by a very thin, almost translucent neck. Holding the dough by the “head,” turn the dough upright so the body is resting on the work surface. Lower the head down into the body, pressing deeply into the body and spreading it with your thumbs and index fingers to make a nest for the head. Tighten the body around the nestled head by tucking and lifting the body up around the head. Gently place the dough in one of the prepared molds, body down. Repeat with the remaining dough. Transfer the molds to a large rimmed baking sheet.
Make Ahead Tips
Brioches are best served barely warm. They reheat well, so any that are not eaten within a day or two can be reheated in a 325°F oven until the outside is crisp, about minutes for small brioches or 1minutes for large. They can also be sliced and toasted.
Pair with Baked Eggs with Chives and Cream for an utterly simple yet luxurious breakfast.
Sheet pans can be baking pans, which are generally designed with one or two raised edges, or bun pans, which are also known as jelly roll pans and have raised edges on all four sides. Both can be used to bake items that don’t produce liquid, like cookies and pastries, while bun pans are capable of containing juices that foods release as they bake. Sheet pans are commonly half- or full-sized, but are available in smaller fractional sizes as well.
Loaf pans can be designed for baking one or multiple loaves of traditional, French, or sub sandwich roll bread at once, so you’ll be able to find the right size pan for your commercial baking needs. Specialty bread pans, like those used to bake brioche bread, are also available.
Cake pans, which are available in a variety of sizes and can be round or rectangular, may be used for any basic cake and might come in sets with multiple pans for businesses that make cakes with more than one layer. Tube cake pans are used for bundt and angel food cakes, while springform cake pans are used for cheesecake and other delicate cakes.
Cupcake and Muffin Pans
Muffin pans are commonly used for muffins, cupcakes, cornbread, and popovers, as well as other breakfast pastries and baked treats. Muffin pans come in a variety of sizes, allowing you to make jumbo, standard, or miniature products. Some manufacturers also offer specialty pans for baking hot dog and hamburger buns.
Quiche and Tart Pans
Quiche pans feature a removable bottom, which allows you to remove the dish without damaging the delicate crust of the food. The diameter of a quiche or tart pan can range from to 1inches, so you’ll be able to find the right size pan for your restaurant.
Ramekins and Soufflé Dishes
While the smallest ramekins are used as sauce cups, larger ones made from oven-safe materials can be used to bake single-serving entrees and desserts. Although soufflé dishes, which are generally larger than a ramekin, are made specifically for baking that dessert, ramekins can be used for that purpose, too.
Braising Pots and Dutch Ovens
Braising pots and Dutch ovens are popular types of oven-safe cookware and are designed to slow-cook food, whether it’s meat and vegetables or a casserole. Dutch ovens are deeper, which also makes them ideal for stews, while braising pots are better suited to dishes with less liquid. These can be crafted from brightly-colored enameled cast iron and are often used as serving dishes.
Roasting pans, often available with a lid, are another popular type of oven-safe cookware that can double as a serving dish. Available in a variety of sizes and shapes, they can also be used to cook meat, vegetables, and casseroles, but are shallower than braising pots or Dutch ovens and are more compatible with dishes that don’t require a liquid base.
A popular material for bakeware as it heats up quickly and cooks evenly, Aluminium is an excellent heat conductor. Great value and easy to clean, it’s ideal for new bakers and budgets.
If you want to invest in quality for years to come, choose anodised aluminium bakeware. Hardwearing and a highly efficient heat conductor, it’s created through oxidisation to create a tough surface that releases cakes with ease and only needs light greasing.
A relative newcomer to the baking scene, silicone is the most versatile material available as it’s freezer, microwave and oven-safe. Suitable for use in even the hottest oven, it conducts heat quickly and evenly with a smooth interior for easy release.
Ideal for creating interesting shapes and novelty cakes and perfect for new bakers, silicone creates a whole new world of exciting possibilities, with creations easy to turn out when they’re baked.
There are several types of cake tin and each has their own uses and advantages. A sandwich tin has shallow sides good for layered cakes such as Victoria sponges, while deep cake tins are ideal for heavy fruit cakes as they allow the cake to rise fully and cook through.
Some tins have loose bases for easy release and these, as well as deep cake tins, can sometimes require lining to prevent leakage. A further innovation in the area of easy baking is the springform cake tin, which has a solid base and removable sides that can be unclipped, making them a great option for cheesecakes as well as general baking.
Pizza & pie tins
Pizza pans come in a variety of different designs tailored to specific types of pizza. If you want a thin, crusty base, try a tin with a perforated base to help it bake – but if you’re after an indulgent, deep-pan pizza, use a pan with deeper sides and a solid base. You can even use different shaped cake tins if you don’t have a pizza pan to hand.
Whether they are fluted, straight, aluminium or ceramic, pie tins play an important part in ensuring your pastry is flaky, well cooked and delicious. We also stock Pyrex pie dishes, which are ideal for checking how well the crust is cooking without disturbing it.
Once available in Britain for just a brief period during the summer, strawberries are now a year…
Wash the fruit and place it all (except the strawberries) in a large pan with the caster sugar and tbsp water. Gently heat for mins until the juice from the fruit starts to seep out. Add the strawberries and cook for mins more. Drain the juice from the fruit through a sieve set over a large bowl. Taste the juice and add a little more sugar if necessary.
Line a 1.2-litre pudding basin with a double layer of cling film, leaving an overlap around the top. Remove the crusts from the brioche and slice the loaf into 1cm-thick slices along the length of the loaf. Cut slice in half widthways and trim the corners to fit into the base of the bowl – you may need to use both squares, trimmed to fit.
Trim the slices to the correct length to line the sides of the bowl. To assemble the pudding, dip the slices of brioche into the fruit juice, then use them to line the basin. Start with the bottom pieces, then lay soaked rectangles of brioche along the sides of the bowl. If you have any gaps left at the end, patch these up with any remaining brioche, but make sure you save some for the base.
Tip the fruit into the lined basin. Finish the pudding with a layer of brioche to make a base, then pour over any remaining liquid. Wrap the overhanging cling film over the top.
Place a small plate, which will fit snugly on top of the basin, over the cling film and weigh down with x 400g cans of tomatoes or beans. Leave the pudding weighed down in the fridge for at least a couple of hours, or overnight if possible.
To serve, unwrap the cling film and place a serving plate over the pudding. Flip it over, remove the basin and carefully peel away the cling film. Serve in slices with clotted cream, if you like.
We’ve mentioned that sharpening your knives with a whetstone (or water stone) is the best way to keep them sharp and safe, but this video will walk you through picking the right stones, learning the right angles, and getting the perfect edge—all in one sitting.
Mumm Cordon Rouge
Peter Vars, Thomas Liquors: Monthuys Pere et Fils Brut Reserve Champagne
Jason Kallsen, Twin Cities Wine: Ronco Calino Saten Franciacorta, North Loop Wine and Spirits: In north central Italy lies the wine region of Franciacorta. Produced mostly from Chardonnay and Pinot Noir (just like Champagne) plus a touch of Pinot Blanc, it’s truly the Champagne of Italy. Franciacorta is one of those awesome wines that most people have never had or heard of, but will have one sip then reach for the bottle to remember what it is.

POINT JUDITH SCALLOPS WITH SPICED CARROT PURÉE & ASPARAGUS
Matthew MacCartney, Executive Chef/Partner, Jamestown FiSH, Jamestown Edible Rhody 201Local Hero: Chef/Restaurant
Scallops are abundant in our area almost year-round. I am always amazed at how something so sweet can come from the ocean! Spices often pair well with foods that contain natural sweetness and so it is with carrots and scallops, here balanced with the bright flavor of asparagus and the exotic flavor of Moroccan Argan oil.
RHUBARB CRUMBLE WITH FRESH MINT ICE CREAM
