So because I have been at home, housebound because of illness and experiencing cabin fever, I once again cracked open the Goldilocks Bakebook and baked something familiar and comforting. I made ensaymada. It’s a sort of soft brioche-y type of bread that’s slathered with creamed butter, slightly sugared and smothered with cheese.
And just like that I am comforted. The recipe needs tweaking because the dough was unbelievably wet! I’m going look up other ensaymada recipes and see where improvements can be made. I am thankful for the ability to bring Manila to me…even if it was through several cheesy-buttery-bready mouthfuls! What can I say – baking is like medicine!
