The The Bakers Dozen: Broiche mold
By Susan J. Greene, Esquire on Friday, March 24, 2000 - 03:40 pm: Edit

I recently purchased a wonderful bread book, by Treuille and Ferrigno, called, Ultimate Bread, and in it there is a recipe for brioche that calls for a mold 7" in diameter and 6" deep. I have looked everywhere locally and on the net, does anyone know where I can find such a deep mold? I do not want a pomodoro or pannetone mold. I want a brioche mold. Thanks, Susan J.

this size is made by MATFER france, i have seen it in wiliam sonoma stores.although it is not 6" deep.looks more like 4.5" deep to me.

Try making it first, you might be glad you couldn't find the mold.
I've used kougeloff molds, muffin tins too.
The dough can be a tricky sticky one, especially if you lack a mixer.

Thanks, for the suggestion, but I really am looking for 7" in diameter and 6" deep. I think I saw the MAFTER one and it was not deep enough. My fear is that I will wind up with an awful mess in the oven and a lot of wasted effort. I know how it is with bread baking after this past year's worth of experimenting. Anyone else?

each size of mold calls for a specific amount of dough. the 7" matfer mold should be used with about 500 grams or alittle over 1 pound of dough.
so, make the recipe scaled down to the size of the mold you have and not the other way, looking for a mold to fit the recipe :-)
