Sweet and buttery, these French breakfast rolls are beautiful to look at and delicious to eat. Though they require a little bit of work, the result is spectacular.
If the eggs are large, 2 eggs and 1 egg yolk will be sufficient; other-wise the dough will be too liquid.
For a Brioche Loaf, prepare dough as for the main recipe. Grease a 26-cm (10 1/2-in) long loaf tin and place dough in it. Let dough rise; brush with egg yolk mixture. Make several diagonal incisions in the top with a sharp knife. Bake loaf for 25–30 minutes until golden.

Well I find this brioche recipe very confusing as a beginner, it really does not explain properly in what order you do things in stage 2 it is just all over the place- ok for people who are familiar with the recipe but I am not, it should have been written in stages 1. you do this, 2 you do this, 3 your do this then add or what ever, 4 you do this. I don't know how this is going to work out for me. I don't have an electric mixer and mixed the dough by hand, that was ok but the recipe lacks proper instruction for beginners. Irene - 09 Sep 2016
