I had no idea what a Brioche was until yesterday. I have heard the word before and assumed it was French, but could not pick the product out of a line up. Good news! Now I know, and can successfully bake it!
It’s a little different looking right? I think so too, and what’s the deal with the ball on top? We were also wondering that in school and our teacher said that it is just an attribute of the Brioche. I also overheard from another student that the reason for the ball is that it makes it easy to take out of the form. I don’t know if that’s true, but it makes sense!
