I thought I should whip up a few things for us to eat and one of them was this brioche. I'll post about the other things in the next couple of days. Brioche is notorious for being a high-fat treat and lets face it, it's the butter that makes it special (as it always is). However one of the sites and forums I visit regularly is called Foodlovers. Helen Jackson, (who owns the website), also does the Saturday morning Kitchen and Garden Show which I love to listen to...if I'm not working and when I remember that it's Saturday. What can I say I blame it on night shift and therefore an absent mind on occasion. On this site and in her new book is a recipe for these Cinnamon Brioche and to make them even more appealing they have less butter than what you would normally find...or is it that the mixture makes a smaller amount therefore only giving the illusion of using less butter. Hmmmmm! Regardless of what the answer is, this is a very easy recipe to make and gives a lovely result. So to impress you friends, partner, family give this a go. I'll definitely be making these again.
You can find the recipe here.
