Hi!


I've been reading a lot of posts here and learning about bread baking. I'm new to this and I learn with every post. :) Love this site!!


I'd like to adapt a recipe my grandmother used to make. I'd like to use a sponge to increase fermentation time and develop flavor. It's a brioche-like bread and it uses A LOT of yeast! (Sorry it's in cups, it's the original recipe).


Recipe:


30 g instant yeast


1/4 cup of water


6 cups flour


5 eggs


1 can of condensed milk (the one that has sugar)
