Brioche royale


Brioche royale
Brioche royale is a very rich brioche, made with candied fruit, toasted hazelnuts and chocolate chips.

Just before baking, it is topped with "macaronade": a macaroon-style mixture of ground almonds and sugar with egg white. This creates a crust when baked and gives the brioche its elegant finish.

You can use other candied citrus peel, especially orange.

For the chocolate, the recipe suggests shavings or curls, which are easier to make, but you can use the same weight of chips or buttons.
