Cooking With Children :: Chocolate Brioche Eggy Bread Recipe

Lara and I were sent some samples of the new range of Brioche products from Warburtons. We had a brioche roll picnic in the garden, a brioche swirl tea party and then one weekend we decided to make a quick but naughty afternoon snack by turning some slices of Warburton's new chocolate chip brioche loaf into a sweet eggy bread. Nom.



4 slices Warburtons chocolate chip brioche loaf
2 eggs
1 tablespoon sunflower or vegetable oil
Icing sugar


  1. Beat the eggs in a bowl that is big enough for you to get the whole slices of brioche into. There is no need to add any sugar because the brioche is quite sweet. You only need to add in a tiny bit of milk if the eggs are very thick.

  2. Heat the oil in a wide flat-bottomed frying pan on a medium to low flame.

  3. Dip each slice of brioche into the egg mixture until it is just coated. Don't leave it to soak too long or else it will take FOREVER for the egg to cook through. After dipping, place each slice directly into the frying pan.

  4. Cook the first side of the brioche for about 2-3 minutes, being careful not to let it burn. Flip the brioche and cook for a further 2-3 minutes on the other side before removing from the pan (check the first one to make sure it really is cooked all of the way through).

  5. Dust each slice of eggy bread with icing sugar to take the savoury edge off the egg.

  6. We enjoyed ours left-like but I was tempted to eat my chocolate chip brioche eggy bread with a spoonful of tart homemade plum jam.
