French Breakfast Bread - A Baguette


Question: What is the word used for French pastry or bread, commonly used at breakfast? We stayed at French Quarter in Disney World, and they served what I thinks was called "Binuette"?

Answer: Hi Jeff, Thanks for writing.

I am stumped by your question. In general, here in France, people would eat a baguette for their breakfast bread. Is this possibly the word that you heard?

I would imagine that in a place inspired by New Orleans, you would find a lot of beignets served. Perhaps that is what you had?

Other than that, here in France you will find a pastry that is very similar to a New Orleans beignet called a bugne. Maybe they have taken that word and twisted it into something new.

Sorry not to be of more help. If someone else has any idea, please let us know!

Kind Regards,

Kim

Might be brioche, which often is sweet and has almonds on it.
