The brioche turned out remarkably well considering all the problems I had making the dough. Just as I was starting to mix the dough, my mixer blew out and I was forced into mixing and kneading by hand. After I had the dough mixed and ready for the freezer, I realized I had forgotten to add the sugar. Maybe, I should have dumped the dough and start over but I kneaded the sugar in and reshaped the dough. AND, the grandma's old brioche pans ended up not usable.
Despite all the problems, the end product was very good and I will be trying again to perfect the brioche.
This week, I have a new mixer being delivered which I am looking forward to.
