These are THE BEST. Made with a tangzhong, a warm flour-and-water paste traditionally used in China, and using less butter than a true brioche. These are a snap to make if you have a stand mixer, and come out soft and fluffy. Mine didn’t take nearly as much time to rise as Joshua’s, so watch your dough rather than the clock. SO GOOD! Joshua’s a great instructor, and a joy to watch. At the end of the first video I watched of his, (focaccia, 6/2018), he thanks his 2,000 subscribers. He’s now up to 2.38 million. He wrote his first cookbook , Slim Palate, at 17, and, he’s also a bit of a TikTok sensation.
