Can I make vegan brioche?
Yes. Traditional brioche has milk, butter and eggs in it so it is not vegan. However, you can make vegan brioche if you use dairy-free milk and vegan butter and compensate for the help of eggs by adding extra butter and adjusting the amount of yeast.
Brioche Bread Machine Recipe
Tags: Bread maker brioche
Brioche is a viennoiserie from French cuisine. Viennoiseries are made in a similar way as regular bread but have a richer taste due to different ingredients added into them. Being a viennoiserie, brioche differs from regular bread with its enriched dough which includes eggs and butter, and slightly sweeter taste. There are also different brioche versions which may include raisins, chocolate chips etc.
Brioche is very healthy. It is very rich in nutrients thanks to its milk, butter and egg content compared to other regular breads.

HOW TO STORE LEFTOVER BRIOCHE:
It is better to store leftover brioche in the refrigerator since it has eggs in it. You should put it in an airtight container to avoid drying.
You can also freeze the brioche slices in an airtight container to consume later. They become as fresh as newly baked when you thaw them in the morning.
