FABBY: Home Made Brioche for Breakfast

Hello sweet friends!

     Yesterday I got great news from sweet and pretty Deborah who had 3 MONTH Bloggiversary!
Can you just imagine, I didn't! She's such an expert blogger, very talented indeed, I love her blog and I have felt I've been friends with her for at least a year, lol!

If you have a chance here is where you can go visit this lovely lady's blog which is just like the title says:  "The Beautiful Matters."

I will make a post with the adorable teacup and saucer, plus a the lovely vintage tea towel, I won!

Now for my new post. Let me start by saying that you guys, my blogger friends are the best, ever! You Inspire me everyday in every sense. My favorite thing to do, besides decorating, is baking.

While visiting pretty April and her great food blog, 'Dimples & Delights,' I saw a fabulous recipe for: "Fool-Proof Homemade Brioche" and decided I need to do this and I did!

We loved it, specially hubby and I highly recommend you go get this recipe over at lovely April's food blog, because my bread is not as pretty as her perfectly braided one, with her tutorial an all, as mine is just a loaf!

Here goes, hope you like it!

I'm also sharing a picture with my darling grandgirls who went back home after spending two weeks with grandpa and me...and I miss them so much!

I'm so happy here with my two sweeties; Cayetana and Victoria, the oldest. Their mother came to fetch them and I miss them so much already!

Our breakfast table with the delicious 'Fool-Proof Homemade Brioche' by sweet April at her great food blog, "Dimples & Delight." I highly recommend you visit her and get fabulous recipes, and this Brioche is delicious!

Here you have it...my Brioche shaped into a loaf, not like April's shaped into a gorgeous braid, with tutorial and all!

The yellow salad plate is from my everyday china, which has mugs to match in yellow in this case. The dishes came in four colors.

Strawberry marmalade at your right.

For our breakfast this morning I used the green salad plate and mug to match as here and the yellow set. The everyday china comes in four lovely colors.

The egg cups were made back at our ceramic factory.

You cannot imagine how delish this piece of bread is!

Here you have it, my homemade bread from great food blog:


Thank you so much sweet and kind friends for your wonderful comments, you always make my day!

Thanking the lovely and gracious hostesses for having me at their parties each week.

  1. Fabby, que lindas se ven las tres! Your homemade Brioche looks delicious and your tablescape, as usual, fantastic! Love the green china and those pretty egg cups.

  2. Your table is so lovely!! I especially like your flowers. I'm a flower girl at heart, and love having fresh flowers around the house. Thank you for the sweet shout-out, I think your loaf looks great!! I'm going to try the classic shape next time I bake brioche :) Have a great week, Fabby! :)

  3. Your breakfast table looks gorgeous. I love the greens and yellows together. I have those colours in my china hutch right now for spring. The bread looks delicious! Have a lovely week, Fabby. Hugs, Pamela

  4. Beautiful breakfast table! And another bread recipe to try!! I really enjoyed making your Mother's Two Loaf Recipe Bread you shared awhile back and now I need to try this brioche recipe. Thanks for referring it to us. I love all of your bright and cheery dishes! They make a gorgeous table! Hope you are having a wonderful week!

  5. Such a wonderful picture the girls Fabby. Your table, as always, looks beautiful and your Brioche was delicious I'm sure:) xxleslie

  6. Your Brioche came out beautifully, and your table setting was just lovely. Stopping by from Anyonita's Tasty Tuesday - have a great day!

  7. Oh this looks so good- I'd like to swoop in and take a bite! Pretty table setting! Your grandchildren are so cute and precious. I'm sure they are fun to have around.

  8. OMGOSH, Fabby. That looks absolutely delicious! WOW! Your table is beautiful-as it always is. You do such a gorgeous job of creating a gorgeous table.

    I know that you miss your granddaughters already. Hopefully, they will be back before you know it. xo Diana

  9. Hi Fabby!! Thanks for stopping by! I had to do some serious checking on our plates, they are close, but not the same. I love the egg cups and plates, along with that beautiful platter your bread is on!! Which the bread does look deliciously wonderful. Beautiful photo of you and your grandgirls too!

  10. Oh Fabby, you are just too sweet!! Thank you for the shout-out. I got your address, and will be mailing out your package tomorrow. Just think, it is coming from somewhere with over a foot of snow still on the ground!! Your table is beautiful, that brioche looks delicious! You and your granddaughters look so happy together! Blessings to you, Deborah

  11. Fabby, your granddaughters are darling. They are soooo pretty.

    Your bread looks wonderful, too! And the table setting, lovely. Susan

  12. Oh, look at those pretty ladies!!! Y'all have great genes!

    The table is almost as pretty as you and your girls. And one of my favorite things to do when we visit New Orleans is having breakfast at a local coffee shop that serves the strongest coffee with chicory and most delicious brioche. But your brioche looks even better. I might try baking some. Thanks so much for the link!


  13. Congratulations on your win, Fabby!!
    Your granddaughters are adorable and I know you miss them. They light up your life, right?
    The brioche looks wonderful and I'd love a piece of it right now, but would rather be sitting at your pretty table. xo

  14. Bonjour ma chère Fabby,
    C'est un grand moment que je viens de passer en ta compagnie... et un peu celle des tes adorables petites-filles. Quel joli tableau de famille vous faites !
    Oh ! mais cette fameuse brioche me semble succulente et à cette heure matinale elle me tente réellement ! accompagnée d'une bonne tasse thé (thé du Bois Chéri rapporté de l'Île Maurice!)... c'est juste parfait !
    Je suis très admirative devant cette très belle table dressée... Tout y est disposé avec goût et délicatesse. On ne peut que bien démarrer la journée, n'est-ce pas ?
    Ton service est magnifique et j'adore les petits coquetiers...
    Je te fais de gros bisous ma chère amie.

  15. Fabby, beautiful granddaughters I bet they learn a lot from you about setting a beautiful table and being a gracious hostess. The bread looks wonderful I will have to check out the recipe.

    God bless your week


  16. The brioche looks yummy braided or not Fabby and your setting? Perfect as always! I can understand why you miss your little beauties, but what's important is the memories you've share together while they were there right? Cheer up, and keep on being inspired since you and your lovely works inspire us all as well!

  17. Hi Fabby, your grandchildren are so precious and your tablesetting is so pretty as usual! The bread looks like it would taser delicious and I love Brioche bread! Take care and thanks so much for sharing! Have a wonderful week.

  18. Fabby, I can almost smell that delicious bread from here! It looks amazing as does your gorgeous table.
    The girls, (and you!) get more gorgeous each day!

  19. Dear Fabby, What a beautiful picture of you and your grandgirls.
    You look lovely and they are so sweet.
    I am sure they miss you too.
    Your table setting is beautiful as you always do and the brioche is beautiful.
    Blessings dear. Catherine xo

  20. I have visited "The Beautiful Matters " already and agree it is a very lovely blog! As is your girls and table setting and food photos...always a pleasure to visit here with you, Fabby! :)

  21. You, my dear, are a beautiful woman and those 2 grandgirls take their good looks from their Gran.
    Your table is beautiful...I so love your egg cups...and I can't wait to make this bread.
    hugs, bj

  22. Dearest Fabby,
    LOVE your two grandgirls and yes how tough for letting them go.
    But you know, such an intense two-week period with them together makes for special bonding and above all, you left another of your gracious table setting imprints on their minds forever.
    What a blessing for having such a grandma as you are to them and so is their grandpa.
    LOVE your design of egg cups for your former china factory. The way they get elevated makes for a unique display at the table and I love the colors, also on the plate for the brioche.
    Hugs to you and hope your blog problems will leave you too. I had some browser problems too but when our friend did restart it seemed to work again.
    Can't tell exactly what he did or didn't do... since I'm illiterate in PC matters!
    Happy Thursday.

  23. Fabby, that bread, looks divine!! And as always, your table is just splendid. Your sweet grandaughters are so cute....I know you are proud! Happy VTT

  24. We love our children, but nothing compares to grans or great grans. You have two very pretty young ones. I dearly love bread. Wish I had a big slice of yours hot with butter.

  25. Everything here looks so lovely, and I love the pic of you granddaughters! Happy Tablescape Thursday!!

  26. That looks so pretty and Springy! The bread looks delicious. Your girls are getting so big!

  27. Beautiful table...that bouquet is the bomb!

  28. So pretty and cheerful. Perfect start to the day. See you at SYC.

  29. Yes, I can image how delish your bread is! Looks wonderful but the lovely table provides the ambience. I adore your egg cups and all the matching hand painted china.

    Your grandaughters are indeed blessed to have such a lovely grandmother!!!!! They are adorable, Fabby!

  30. Fabby, your bread looks delicious and I love your pretty Spring table! Congrats on the win. I do love Deborahs blog. I bet you miss your sweet grands! Thanks for sharing with SYC.

  31. Fabby, all of my recipes need to begin with "Fool Proof" these days!!
    Your bread looks wonderful and your table is so gorgeous. Love those great egg cups and all of the pretty shades of green. Love the photo of you and the girls - three beauties, indeed!!

  32. oh my gosh, how wonderful you got to spend 2 weeks with your granddaughters. that is great!

  33. The bread looks delicious and I love your table - especially the egg cups! What a sweet picture of you and your granddaughters! I know they miss you too!

  34. I love the beautiful picture of the three of you. What a wonderful memory they will have of their week with you both!
    I love your tablescape. I was just talking about egg cups, yours are very pretty. I would love to buy some! I have never made brioche. I would love to try it. Thank you for sharing! I love to bake too. I just need to make time!
    Blessings My Friend,

  35. Fabby, Your grand daughters are so pretty and you look fabulous in this lovely picture of you and the grands. The table that you have set for breakfast is so bright and cheerful. The egg cups are especially sweet to look at. Your factory certainly produced some beautiful pottery. I have never tried to make brioche (I am not a good baker) but I will check out the recipe and give it a try. Have a wonderful week Fabby!

  36. Your grandgirls are beautiful, Fabby.
    Love the green and white china...oh, and the bread looks yummy!

  37. Your Brioche looks delicious, Fabby and the tablescape is beautiful!
