Why is it called brioche?
Brioche is a French bread, which is made from yeast dough and enriched with butter and eggs. The word brioche is derived from a verb “brier”, which is derived from northern French word “broyer” which means to knead. Etymologists believe that the word broyer was loaned from German word “brehhan” which meant break.
