I have started watching what goes into my food, so I've begun making my food from scratch.
Perfect Bread for French Toast!
Since I've been home during the quarantine, I've been using my bread machine a lot to make multigrain bread. Then I thought about trying out a new recipe to perk things up—and since I love French toast, I decided to make brioche.
The brioche turned out pillow-soft with a flaky crust. It was the perfect texture for my French toast. Moreover, I made this at home! How comforting it is to know that I can make more of this any time.
By the way, I also used this bread for my hamburger sandwiches. I love how it turned my simple burgers into a gourmet treat.

Bread Machine Tips
- Make sure that that the yeast does not get wet when you add it to the flour.
- Soften the butter a bit (but still solid in form) before dropping it into the flour mixture. This is to facilitate its incorporation with the flour mixture.
