We’re going to take the scenic route to breakfast.

Don’t worry, I do this often in life… usually it’s because I’m stubborn and I don’t like to use the navigation app on my phone.

By way of breakfast, we’re taking the scenic route by first… making a casual loaf of really lovely lavender brioche bread.

Ingredients

  • 6 tablespoons butter, plus more for greasing the bowl
  • 1/2 cup whole milk
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons dried lavender
  • 1 tablespoon (1 package plus 1/2 teaspoon) active dry yeast
  • 3 large eggs, at room temperature (2 for the bread, 1 to brush the top)
  • 4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • canola oil for the work surface
  • 5 large eggs
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • ½ cup heavy cream
  • 3 tablespoons lightly packed light brown sugar
  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • canola oil for cooking the french toast
