Brioche a' Tete

 There are some things I must recede to and put on my to do list. Sometimes it will just take months, and I mean months, before it possibly happens. After baking and enjoying boule bread many times from the book, Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day,  I had literally read and reread the recipes for the sweet bread recipes with hopes and plans of trying my hand at baking a few of them.

My first endeavor was the brioche a' tete. Served warm from the oven with raspberry jam spread across its buttery middle, heavenly ambrosia! If you believe butter makes everything delicious, as I seem to think, than the amount of butter found in this bread dough will thrill you from just reading the ingredients.

Mmmm, butter and fresh bread! Is there anything more delicious?
