Brioche bread

After successfully making bubble brioche rolls, I decided to make a brioche loaf so I could make some sandwiches and French toast.

I used the same recipe I used last time. I tried to make two loaves, but the bread didn’t rise much after the refrigeration, so my loaves aren’t as big as I wanted. I’ve enjoyed this recipe, but I think I want to check out some others.  If anyone has a good brioche recipe, please let me know!

I am also thinking of testing out one that doesn’t require refrigerating the dough overnight, just because I don’t like preparing a recipe so far ahead of time.

      There’s so much fresh bread in Taiwan, I guess there isn’t so much of an incentive to make it. But brioche might be a good one to try. It’s easy to mix up, you just need patience while it proofs.
