How to make it

  • In a large bowl cream butter.
  • Add sugar and salt and mix together.
  • Soften yeast in warm water.
  • Blend the milk, butter mixture, and yeast.
  • Add egg yolk, eggs, and flour.
  • Beat with a wooden spoon for two minutes.
  • Cover and let rise in warm place until more than doubled, about two hours.
  • Stir down and beat thoroughly.
  • Cover tightly with aluminum foil and refrigerate until dough is firm (about an hour).
  • Grease the brioche tins with a brush and a small amount of margarine or non-stick spray.
  • Scale the pate brioche into size 2 ounce pieces and round them up into smooth balls on a floured surface
  • Using a pastry brush brush the tops of the dough balls with egg. Pick them up from the bottom with your fingers and dip the tops fully in a dish of decorative sugar.
  • Place directly into the greased tins, with the sugar side up.
  • Bake in a hot oven 425 degrees (F) until golden brown, reduce the heat to 375 F. toward the end of the bake.
  • Remove from tins as soon as possible to prevent moisture build-up inside the tin.

    Despite the number of steps, this is really one of the more doable brioche recipes I've seen. You don't have to commit an entire weekend, which is a plus! Thanks for posting this.
