Are Brioche Buns Vegan

Whether you’re thinking of having brioche as part of your breakfast or even with a plant-based burger in the middle, you must be wondering if they’re vegan.

What are brioche buns? 

Brioche has all the makings of a pastry, but in fact, it’s French bread that’s made from an enriched dough. Once baked, it has a rich and tender texture that usually has a dark golden, with a flaky and shiny crust that’s been baked with an egg wash after proofing. 

It’s not a new invention by any means. The first recorded use of the name dates back to the 1400s!

Are brioche buns vegan? 

Traditionally, no, brioche isn’t suitable for vegans because it’s made with eggs, dairy-based butter, cream and milk.

However, it’s completely possible to make your own plant-based brioche at home – we love this recipe from Domestic Gothess. Or failing that, pick up some vegan brioche buns at Waitrose.
