  10. Shape 1/4 of the batter into a ball on lightly floured surface. Shape remaining 3/4 batter into a 3 1/2-inch flattened round. Repeat with refrigerated batter.
  11. Grease two 5-cup brioche pans or two 1 1/2-quart ovenproof bowls. Place large rounds in pans, patting to fit. Make indentation about 2 inches in diameter in center of each; Place smaller balls in indentations. Cover and let rise until double, about 1 1/2 hours.

Individual Brioches

  2. Working quickly with floured hands (batter will be soft and slightly sticky), shape 12 of the slices into balls; place in pans. Flatten and make a deep indentation in center of each. Cut each of the remaining 3 slices into 4 equal parts. Shape each part into a small ball; place a ball in each indentation. Repeat with refrigerated batter. Cover and let rise until double, about 40 minutes.
  3. Heat oven to 375 degrees F.
