What are you baking these days? June 2011, part 2 [old]

buttertart | Jun 15, 201109:46 AM     207

Hi all, for some happy reason the June thread got very big very fast, so I thought a part 2 was a good idea for ease in loading, since it's the 15th.

I see we're all baking our little hearts out. "It's a good thing."

Just wanted to remind everybody of souschef's fun challenge for the month: a Brioche aux Fruits...
"The challenge, should choose to you accept it, is to make a 'Brioche aux Fruits'.
As made by a former wonderful pastry shop here (the Swiss owner unfortunately died many years ago), it consisted of a brioche with the top knot cut off, the delicious contents of the brioche scooped out, and the brioche shell filled with pastry cream and fruit, then the top knot replaced.
There was a thin chocolate shell on the bottom (inside) to prevent the brioche from going soggy.
The terms of the challenge is that the brioche has to be made, not purchased, and it should be done by July 4th, 2011."

Come one, come all - what are YOU baking these days?
