Nobody loves their bread as much as the French . Indeed, there are so many varieties of French bread, one for every occasion!
The Brioche Loaf is a classic treasure from the French collection of breads, which is characterised by the rich taste of milk and eggs.
This loaf also happens to be super soft because of the use of eggs. It literally melts in your mouth and is perfect to have during breakfast with a cup of coffee or tea.
The Brioche Loaf lasts for a day or two at room temperature but cannot be stored beyond that because it has eggs.
Lose yourself in the taste of other nice breads like the Sundried Tomato Loaf and Whole Wheat Bread .
