Margie of Tea and Scones chose Golden Brioche Loaves on pages 48-50 of Baking by Dorie Greenspan.I adore brioche and Dorie's recipe is one of my favorites.Lately I have been addicted to baking with orange, so I filled these with an orange-cream cheese filling that made these buns so moist and fluffy. The cream cheese baked up into the buns, leaving a hint of orange taste with a slight tang of cream cheese. They had a subtle sweetness, not as powerful and decadent as a cinnamon bun. It was just right for a breakfast treat and so pretty with the flecks of orange throughout.Orange Cream FillingCooks Illustrated8 oz. cream cheese, softened1/4 cup sugar2 tbsp orange zest1 tsp vanilla1 egg2 tbsp flourCombine all ingredients with an electric mixer until smooth. Store in refrigerator until ready to fill the buns.
