I recently visited the Bertinet Bakery in Bath and amongst other things tried this brioche slice. On returning home I had to give it a go myself so this is my version for you to create a petit bit of france in your kitchen.

2 Large Oranges sliced thinly
 145g Sugar
 200ml Water
1 Sliced Brioche Loaf
 100g Butter
 2 Eggs
 75g Plain Flour
 1/2 tsp Baking Powder
 100g Ground Almonds
 1 tsp Almond Extract
 100g Flaked Almonds

Heat the water in a pan with 100g sugar till it has dissolved then add the orange slices and simmer for 15 minutes. Remove from the heat and leave to cool.  In a bowl mix the butter, eggs, flour, baking powder, almonds, almond extract and 45g sugar till well combined.  Lay the slices of brioche onto a baking sheet and drizzle each slice with 1 tbsp of the orange syrup from the pan. Now spread each slice with the almond paste and cover with flaked almonds.  Top the brioche with a slice of orange and bake for 20-25 minutes at 180C till the almonds become golden.

Bon Appetit
