Buchty brioche – Thermomix recipe


Buchty brioche – Thermomix recipe

Here’s another very very popular recipe on the French Thermomix forums… when you talk about brioche, everyone raves on about this particular Buchty type.

Having now, finally, tried it myself, Ooooh Emmmm Geeee is all I can say.

It is a soft and moist brioche, which is perfect for breakfast or after school snack.

It’s also made without butter!

It is often said that the recipe originated from Germany, but in fact, the origin of the ‘Buchteln’ is the region of Bohemia.
