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.
