This recipe for dairy free brioche buns is the perfect accompaniment to any dinner table and the end to your search for the perfect burger bun for your veggie burgers.
Remember when I told you about my new found love for eggs that started last summer? Well, that is definitely coming to an end. I have not been able to stomach eggs for the past few weeks and even the smell throws me off. I didn’t think it would last as long as it did but the plus is that Micah gets more eggs. He’s convinced I need to just switch up how I’m eating them and he may be on to something.
I can tell you that as long as eggs are in the form of brioche buns I’m a fan. I made these two weeks ago to go along with a new veggie burger recipe that I’ll be posting later this week. Considering your favorite all-time recipe on this blog is still this veggie burger recipe I know you are going to love it!
What is not to love about a super buttery, eggy, fluffy, and slightly sweet bread like brioche? That combination is the perfect type of bread, in my opinion which is why it is my favorite.
Oh, that whole buttery situation? I used vegan butter but feel free to use any type of butter you like or even substitute coconut oil. Not a vegan who started eating eggs again like I did? Substitute eggs for egg replacer. In the past I have used flax eggs to substitute eggs in the recipe and it turned out fine. It will not be traditional brioche but it will still be tasty bread.
These are dairy free but feel free to substitute the coconut milk for any type of milk you wish. This recipe makes an even 12 buns. Not that it matters because you will find yourself toasting these and spreading them with jam and even making brioche french toast. Both happened and Micah and I loved it. These were gone in a week and there is no shame in that.
While I’m being honest I should tell you that another batch of brioche buns are proofing on my counter right now. That’s right, I’m making them again for a new veggie burger recipe that I’m testing. Regardless if the veggie burgers turn out how I want them to or not I know the buns are amazing.
Feel free to shape the dough into any form you want. If you plan on making a loaf this recipe will make two loaves total. I thought about baking and posting all the different classic shapes of brioche but that takes too much time and that’s what Google is for.
I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as we do! Stay tuned for later this week when I post the veggie burger that was sandwiched in between these buns.
