This decadent, rich and buttery brioche brunch recipe will tantalise your taste buds. Consisting of egg and butter, brioche bun serves as an indulgent accompaniment to sweet raspberry coulis. Streaky bacon acts as the ‘brunch’ element, which, having been (deliciously) caramelised in the oven, compliments the sweetness of the coulis-coated bun. Add vanilla-mascarpone to this and you have mouth-watering, perfectly balanced flavours all in one bite. Schweigen disclaimer - this recipe is not for the faint-hearted!
