Baking butter instead of/as well as normal butter?


Bit difficult to think of ways to save on a product with so few ingredients. Have you looked into dehydrated milk, eggs etc?

Stop and think.
Brioche is one of those products with no wiggle room.
Good butter with fresh milk and eggs defines it.
If I had to choose I would choose to not make it at all.

flipflopgirl is right.  


Your recipe is *already* light in terms of butter -- I would go up another 80-90 grams. 


You are, however, way overloaded with sugar!  Cut that back to 25 grams or so.  


The cakey texture and delicate flavor of brioche *depend* on good, fresh butter.  Fresh eggs, too.  Please don't cheap out!
