Things you need to do:

Making the brioche

I got my recipe from this book, but you can also use this recipe from the web (i found it quite good too). If you don’t have time to make it, just buy it from the store.

Making the syrup

First make the syrup. Combine water and sugar (B) in a sauce pan and bring to a boil over medium heat. Remove from the heat. Slice the orange into 6mm slices then add them into the warm syrup. Cover and let cool to room temperature, then place in the fridge to soak overnight.

Making the paste

Bring the butter and egg to room temperature. Cream the butter and sugar (A) together. Whisk the egg before slowly creaming it in the stages into the butter mixture. Add the hazelnut/almond ground and vanilla essence. Mix into a smooth consistency. Put it in the fridge for a night.

Putting it all together

Slice the brioche into 2 cm thick slices.Lightly coat each side with some syrup. Spread the paste onto the top of each slice. Sprinkle with almond and dust with powdered sugar before baking. Bake for 12- 15 mins. The paste should be light golden- toasted color.

Serve it with your coffee and start your day ;).
