Brioche recipe

Brioche is a funny thing. Some consider it a bread whilst others consider it a pastry. Its served sometimes at breakfast but then also with desserts and even with fish and steaks. Its very versatile and due to its robust nature is awesome for making croutons and melba toast.

· Add the butter and mix for a further 10 minutes or until the dough is elastic.
· Place the dough in a bowl, cover with plastic and rest in a warm place to prove till double.
