The History of Brioche


Did you know the earliest recorded history of the word Brioche dates back to 1404? Brioche can come in all different forms. There is a Brioche loaf, muffin and bun. Breadworks is known for their Brioche Buns. It has butter, eggs, and milk in it. Those ingredients are what gives the Brioche Bun the sweeter taste and the golden top. The egg wash is applied after the bun is done proofing. Brioche is considered a Viennoiserie in that it is made in the same basic way as bread but has the richer aspect of a pastry. Some people bake brioche with fruit or chocolate chips and serve it as a dessert. Breadworks sticks to the classic and makes our Brioche Burger Buns which are a popular choice for restaurants and retail customers. We also offer a Wheat Brioche bun which is slightly less sweet and has oats on top of the bun. Next time you’re looking for a great bun to use for a burger or a sandwich—pick up the Brioche Bun!
