Sunshine on toast

Brioche with apricot jam

Top combination

The greyness of this morning demands an injection of warmth and colour. Soft yellow brioche combined with summer reminiscent apricot jam will do that for me. A delicious vanilla perfume emanates from the toaster, declaring that this is not a matter of ordinary bread being toasted. I am in the habit of leaving some butter in a covered butter dish so that softened butter will always be available for such mood emergencies. This prevision ensures that the butter melts on contact with the newly suntanned brioche, providing a suitably luxurious surface for the spoonful of fruit filled, translucently gloopy apricot jam. Alternate mouthfuls of good coffee and jam topped brioche have done the job – here comes the sun.

  1. you’re spot on with having readily available soft butter. It creates all the difference to the rock hard just-out-of-the-refigerator spreading experience.
