A brioche is a soft roll or small loaf made from a rich yeast-raised dough made with flour, butter, and eggs. The word brioche originated as a derivative of the verb brier, a northern dialect variant of Old French broyer, ‘knead’; this was a Germanic loanword, related to Old High German brehhan, ‘break’.
