What makes brioche bread different from most breads?
What is brioche, you ask? Brioche is a French bread-like pastry that is very light and airy in texture. Brioche bread attains its golden color, rich flavor, and fluffy texture by adding lots of butter and eggs to the recipe. Our low-carb recipe makes this brioche bread keto-friendly!
How long does brioche bread last?
The key to a brioche bread that lasts is securing the moisture of the bread by using proper storage techniques. Once your brioche bread has cooled after baking, the leftovers should be sealed tightly in a plastic bag, which will help your bread last for about 3-4 days. To keep your brioche good for several months, wrap the freshly baked and cooled bread in aluminum foil, then in plastic wrap, and place in the freezer. If you slice your bread before freezing, it will be easier to thaw in the future.
How does brioche bread taste?
This mouth watering brioche bread recipe leaves you with a rich, buttery flavor that is a perfect mixture of sweet and savory. This brioche bread has a flaky, yet spongy texture that pairs beautifully with a fruit topping, such as a blueberry sauce. Topping this brioche bread recipe with our homemade blueberry sauce will satisfy all of your cravings for baked-goods!
Brioche bun calories
A regular brioche bun recipe contains 280 calories per bun (serving). Our low carb brioche bread recipe contains 247 calories per serving.
What is the difference between brioche bread and challah bread?
Challah is a kosher Jewish bread, while brioche bread comes from the French. Challah bread and brioche bread look very similar, but have rather different qualities in both texture and taste. The high content of eggs, butter, milk, and cream give brioche bread a semi-sweet taste and fluffy texture, much like a pastry. Challah bread is typically spongy and buttery, with a flavor that is more true to a bread than a pastry.
What is the difference between brioche bread and regular bread?
Brioche bread contains lots of butter and eggs compared to regular bread. This increases the fat content, which gives brioche bread its light, flaky, pastry-like qualities as compared to regular bread. The higher fat content, combined with the low carb ingredients in this particular brioche bread recipe make this ideal for a keto diet!
Is brioche a cake or a bread?
Though brioche is rich and buttery like a cake, that is where the similarities end. Brioche has more break-like qualities than a cake. To make brioche more like a dessert, it can be made into brioche rolls, French toast, or topped our delicious blueberry sauce!
Does bread last longer in the fridge?
You should not store your bread in the fridge. Although it will delay the progression of mold growth, storing bread in in the fridge will cause your bread to go stale faster. Bread should typically be kept in a well-sealed plastic bag at room temperature to keep in moisture.

Low Carb Brioche Bread Recipe with Homemade Blueberry Sauce
- 1 1.09oz/31g packet Ancient Nutrition Keto Protein Vanilla
- ¼ teaspoon baking powder
- 1 large egg
- 1 28g packet Burn Butter Natural Grass Fed Butter
- ½ teaspoon vanilla bean paste
- ½ teaspoon lemon zest
- 4 drops liquid stevia
- Swerve Confectioners for garnish (optional)
- Preheat oven to 350°F and grease the inside of a 6 oz ramekin with butter or coconut oil.
- Whisk together all ingredients in a medium bowl, and pour them into the prepared ramekin. Bake until the brioche is puffed and golden and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, about 25 to 30 minutes.
- Meanwhile, make the blueberry sauce. The fastest and easiest way to make it is in the microwave. Add the blueberries, stevia, and salt to a microwave-safe bowl and microwave for 6 minutes at 50% power, stopping to stir once halfway through. Once out of the microwave, stir in the lemon juice and vanilla. (Alternatively, you can make the blueberry sauce on the stovetop.)
- Serve the brioche topped with the blueberry sauce. If desired, dust the top with Swerve Confectioners to make it pretty.
