Brioche

After buying Brioche on numerous occasions for recipes and feeling guilty for spending so much money on bread, I decided that I needed to try to make my own.

It takes two days- but isn’t tricky.  The recipe in French Laundry makes two loaves.

 

loaf one:  lovely, a thing of beauty and perfection.

 

 

Loaf two… oops.  Didn’t butter the pan well enough I suppose.

 

 

But look how lovely it looks.  I guess the good news is I now have an excuse to make lots of croutons- and I won’t feel guilty eating about half the loaf like this:

 

 

PS.  If you wonder why brioche is so tasty, look at the recipe.  The butter content alone is enough to make me weep.
