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, ...).

Brioche feuilletée (flaky brioche)

For brioche feuilletée (or flaky brioche), the brioche dough is treated like puff pastry, with layers of butter incorporated by repeated turning and rolling. Coarse sugar crystals add a sweet crunchiness. Needless to say, this is very rich and quite irresistible.
