  • Summary

    This sweet bread is similar to buttery brioche, but has crumbled sugar cubes baked into the dough for a tasty crunch when you take a bite. For a thick, opaque glaze, add additional confectioners' sugar until you reach the desired consistency.

    Ingredients

    • 1 envelope (1/4 ounce) active dry yeast
    • 5 tablespoons whole milk, warmed (110 degrees)
    • 3 3/4 cups all-purpose flour, plus more for dusting
    • 1 tablespoon plus a pinch of coarse salt
    • 1/4 cup superfine sugar
    • 7 large eggs, room temperature
    • 1 1/2 teaspoons finely grated orange zest
    • 3 sticks unsalted butter, cut into small pieces, room temperature, plus more for pans
    • 4 ounces brown-sugar cubes (about 25), such as La Perruche (available at amazon.com)
    • 1 1/3 cups confectioners' sugar
    • 1/4 cup whole milk
