These Raspberry Cream Cheese Brioche Pockets are no ordinary breakfast buns! Filled with sweetened cream cheese and berries, they’re definitely out of this world.

Our June theme for my Twelve Loaves group is Summer Buns. Each month we bake bread to a theme…and “summer buns” became quite a joke around my house. It stared when I polled the family on what they thought constituted a summer bun. My perplexed state tuned to laughter as Bill wondered how I could possibly bake cummerbunds. They were no help at all.

Well, it turns out I was making brioche for Tuesdays with Dorie, so I took half the dough and made a sweet stuffed version of the assigned savory pockets. I combined cream cheese with some sugar and a squeeze of lemon and put a dollop between two dough rounds, along with a big juicy ripe raspberry. The layers puffed up beautifully in the oven! Sweet, glorious raspberry cream cheese brioche pockets were certainly tastier than cummerbunds!

From Scratch or Semi-Homemade for Twelve Loaves

Now, I realize most of you won’t make your own rich and tender brioche, but you could utilize frozen bread dough or even crescent rolls to make something quite similar. Homemade brioche is buttery and an extraordinary treat fresh out of the oven, though, so if you’re a bread baker, you must give these  raspberry cream cheese brioche pockets from scratch a shot.

  9. These brioche looks beautiful with simple filling but sound perfectly yummy

  10. That is a funny baking story, Lizzy. How great that you used 1/2 of the dough from your Dorie recipe for this. I wish I had a 1/2 piece dough ready to make these for us now for breakfast-fantastic buns:)Thank you for being a part of the group! xx

  11. Liz, what a great start to the summer with these gorgeous cummerbunds, I mean Summer Buns πŸ™‚
    Cream cheese and raspberries (my favourite) were just meant for each other -I’ll be making these for my picnic tomorrow. Can’t wait!

  12. Cummerbuns???? Sometimes the family can be no help whatsoever! πŸ™‚ You were still inspired though!

  13. What a delightful combination of cream cheese and raspberry! Even though your family got a laugh out of the theme this month I am sure they enjoyed eating these. I know I would!

  14. You made brioche even better!! These are gorgeous & I wish I had one to go with my coffee right now!

  15. Wow, these are so the thing that comes to mind when I think of summer buns! I wondered what you were up to with the pics in the savory post, but not a single word about them…! Nice job!

  16. Such pretty pockets, I love the raspberry centers!

  17. Liz, the combination certainly got us all excited & salivating! I could certainly use some summer buns πŸ™‚

  18. Love this! Homemade brioche is something that I’ve wanted to make for yours. And stuffing them with that raspberry cream cheese filling is just genius!

  19. I am fascinated

  20. Brioche and raspberries? I seems to me a match made in heaven!

  21. I most definitely would make my own brioche. πŸ™‚ That is my favorite bread, and yet one I eat so seldom. These would be so great for freezing ahead (for a short time) and warming up when friends come over to surprise me! These remind me of the delicate French pastries that we found in the boulongerie, struggling to decide what to order! Thank you for sharing this. I always love seeing what you are up to!

  22. Yummy–this looks delicious. I think I want to play, looks fun.

  23. Oh they look so beautiful! I have never made Brioche so I will have to try… I love the idea of the cream cheese filling, and the little strawberry completes it perfectly, well done πŸ™‚

  24. I guess you didn’t really need their help because you came up with a great idea. I love surprises in food.

  25. Dear Lizzy I love brioches so much, and dont bake because always I think I will eat a lot:))))
    These look fantastic!

  26. These pockets look absolutely delicious πŸ˜€


  27. These brioches look spectacular Liz! Love the sound of the raspberry cream cheese stuffing!

  28. Ah, brioche…One of my all fav breads!!! These ones filled with cream cheese and raspberry are unique and a real treat. It’s like a sandwich ready to be devoured.

  29. I wish I had one of these lovelies to have with my coffee tomorrow morning! πŸ™‚

  30. Those look so pretty and perfect! I wish I could taste it right now!

  31. What a lovely thing to give to someone and let them discover the wonderful filling. Beautiful to look at too!

  32. Bee-you-tee-ful, Liz =) Whether sweet or savory, if it’s brioche bread (or buns!) I’ll take two!

    Good thinking to add the squeeze of lemon to the raspberries. I imagine the citrus bumps up the flavor.

  33. sooo beautiful! these sound absolutely irresistible!

  34. I have never had a brichoe pocket!!! These look AWESOME with raspberry filling, liz.

  38. I love things with a filling and this brioche looks fabulous, especially with that raspberry filling! Gorgeous pics Liz! Making me hungry again.

  39. There was a whole lot of good eating going on at your house with both the sweet and savory brioche pockets. Both sound incredible.

  40. Love these buns and your description of summer.

  41. Cummerbuns <– ha! Not to encourage the shenanigans, but that totally made me laugh. And these buns totally make me salivate – brilliant idea to fill these with cream cheese, Liz! I need to clear a weekend in my calendar (because we all know how labour & time intensive homemade brioche is – but so worth it!) so that I can make these.

  42. Your buns capture the summer. Beatiful to look and to desire πŸ™‚

  43. From now on when someone mentions ‘summer buns’ I will be thinking about these lovely round pockets of sweetness!! πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

    I wouldn’t know what summer buns are either. You did a great job with these brioche pockets.

  45. What a fabulous idea to stuff the brioche with cream cheese and raspberries! I love fresh berries and raspberries are so full of flavor. The wonderful richness of the brioche would compliment these perfectly! Love it πŸ™‚ Krista @ A Handful of Everything

  46. oh my goodness, Liz!!! These look SOOOO good! Pinning!

  47. I would need one in each hand. YUm! Love the flavors of cream and raspberry together. πŸ™‚

  48. These look lovely. What a nice surprise you get when you take a bit and you met with some raspberries.

  49. I have slowly been overcoming my fear of baking breads. I can’t wait to make these. You make it sound so easy. They look beautiful and delicious. Are you slowly transitioning to bloglovin? Thank you for sharing this lovely brioche!
