1 Measuring cups, 1 Small pot, 1 Mixing bowl, 1 Wooden spoon, 1 Kitchen scale, 1 Fine-mesh sieve, 1 Hand mixer, 1 Kitchen towel, 1 Cookie cutter (according to season or occasion such as bunnies, flowers or chicks), 6 Brioche molds (each approximately 125 ml; or a muffin tin with 6 cups), 1 Pastry brush, 1 Cup, 1 Fork

Preparation steps

Spelt Brioches preparation step 1

Heat 80 ml (approximately 1/3 cup) of in a small pot until lukewarm and place in a mixing bowl. Crumble in the yeast and stir in the sugar.

Add 2 eggs, the salt and peanut butter to the yeast mixture. Add the flour and beat with the dough hook of a hand mixer until smooth. Cover and let rise in a warm place for about 30 minutes.

Spelt Brioches preparation step 3

Pinch off 1 piece of dough (about 80 grams) (approximately 3 ounces) and place on a lightly floured surface. Shape into a disk with floured hands (about 1 cm thick) (approximately 1/2 inch thick). Use cutters to cut out 6 shapes (depending on the season or occasion such as bunnies, flowers and chicks).

Knead the scraps back into the remaining dough. Divide into 6 equal pieces and form each with floured hands into balls. Place each ball in a brioche mold (each approx 125 ml) (approximately 1/2-cup capacity) or the cup of a muffin tin.

Top each roll with a cut-out shape, brush with egg wash and let rise again for about 15 minutes. Bake on middle rack of preheated oven at 200°C (fan 180°C, gas mark 3) (approximately 400°F/convection 350°F) until golden brown, about 20 minutes. Remove from oven, let cool slightly and serve warm.
