Bronut at MarieBette

by Charlottesville29


The Brioche Feuilletee needs a better publicist.  MarieBette’s version, for example, is a knockout.  With dense layers of light, flaky pastry, dusted with crystals of sugar, it is like a cross between brioche, a croissant, and a donut.  But, its name doesn’t exactly roll off the tongue. Its translation – flaky brioche – is even worse.  In the era of social media, we wonder whether this delicious pastry would be a sensation if it had a name as hashtag-friendly as, say, cronut.  Whatever you call, it, you should definitely eat one.  #bronut #crioche #broissant
