How to prepare egg glaze

How to prepare egg glaze

Bakers and pastry chefs use a glaze ("dorure" in French - the same word as for gilding) made with whole full eggs, beaten in a blender.

This is used with a brush on pastry that would not naturally brown during cooking (brioche, puff pastry, ...).
