Since I don't get paid overtime I arranged to take a compensation day on Friday, and what did I do with my day off? Well after visiting a friend in the hospital, I spent some time in the kitchen of course. I knew I would have Friday off at the beginning of the week so one evening I paged through a couple cookbooks in search of something interesting to make.
I came across a recipe for Sweet Potato Brioche that sounded interesting. However, since sweet potatoes don't grow around here, it feels more like pumpkin season and I have lots of pumpkin in my freezer, so why not Pumpkin Brioche? I made some other small changes to the recipe, like honey rather than sugar, but either way this is an absolutely delicious recipe. Brioche is a very soft, slightly sweet bread that is made with lots of eggs so that it has a yellow appearance, especially when made with farm-fresh eggs.
