Chocolate Brioche

I like cooking things that take time, things that really allow you to get involved in the cooking process. Rather than just searing off a steak, things like braising, making pasta, or baking bread allow you to transform ingredients into a creation greater than the sum of its parts. That is the reason I baked brioche a week or two ago and that is the reason I decided to bake a new and improved brioche a few days ago.

Behold you mere mortals, chocolate brioche, what I've confidently declared the king of bread, the big bambino, the sultan of succulence. Simply regular brioche with a layer of chocolate chips down the middle. Try some yourself, and you'll see why I'm giving it all these weird Babe Ruth based nicknames.

Thanks for your comment on my chile rellenos. Sorry I don't have the kind of camera I need. One day...
