I made these chocolate filled brioche rolls. We always put up a typical Russyn Pascha Basket and this year, I made sure to put in plenty of butter for our Bright Week use. It's my favorite thing, a little reminder that we're celebrating Jesus's Resurrection after three days in the tomb. So for example that's not just buttered toast, now it's the Toast of the Feast of the Resurrection!
There is a slightly more complicated way and an easy way to make these rolls, I will leave it up to you to decide how you want to proceed. I like to go slow when I bake. So the steps take five minutes or so at a time across a couple or three days. If you make kefir, this is a great way to use it, especially if it over-ferments. If you don't make kefir use buttermilk, sour milk, yogurt (not low fat), whey, or even the store bought kefir. Use what you have and don't worry about it. If you don't have sourdough starter banging around on your counter, the simplest thing to for this recipe would be to fake it with some yeast, flour, and water (¼ tsp. yeast, ⅔ cup flour, ⅓ cup water) and to leave on the counter overnight or all day before you mix the dough.
Another think I like is accuracy, so I use my scale a lot when I bake, but you don't have to. I have included volumetric measurements for your convenience. Last tip: bread raising is best when you can keep it loosely covered. Shower caps are awesome for that.
