I joined a wonderful group, baking eggless group start by Gayathri. For this month challenge Gayathri suggested cinnamon swirl brioche. Thanks gayathri for your lovely selection.

 Brioche is a french pastry and it contains high amount of eggs and butter. Original recipe needs lots of eggs in it. In the beginning i dont even think about to replacing 8 eggs from it. But afterwards i realized without eggs my brioche become more crispy outside and soft inside. Now its delicious than before.
