Brioche takes two days to make. You mix up the dough one day, then chill it in the refrigerator for 10-24 hours. After that you mold it into a loaf and let it rise again. It's a long wait for a loaf of bread, but it is definitely worth it.
It's great sliced and eaten plain, but it can be even better. Lightly toasted and covered in homemade strawberry jam it tastes like heaven. The best part about this toasted bread and fresh tasting jam is that it tastes just like a Hardee's biscuit with strawberry jam on it. That was one of my favorite treats in elementary school, and I am glad I am able to duplicate the flavor in my kitchen.
