Simple Brioche LoafFrom luisascatering 8 years ago
- 1/2 cup whole milk shopping list
- 2 large eggs shopping list
- 2 tbsp sugar shopping list
- 1 tsp kosher salt shopping list
- 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, softened (use only the best quality butter you can buy please) shopping list
- 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour shopping list
- 1 package active dry yeast (= 2 1/2 teaspoons) shopping list
How to make it
- Bread machine recipe:
- Add all ingredients in order to your bread machine. Set on the dough cycle. When cycle is done (usually 1 1/2 hours for most bread machines) proceed to step 6
- By hand recipe:
- Heat the milk in a small saucepan over low heat until it's just warm (110-115F) Remove pan from heat and pour milk into a small bowl. Stir in the yeast and 1 cup of the flour. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and let rest for 10 min.
- Combine the butter, sugar, salt and eggs in a mixer bowl with a paddle attachment (or food processor). Add the remaining 1 1/2 cups flour and process until smooth. Add the yeast mixture and process again until smooth. Turn the dough onto a lightly floured surface and knead 5 minutes, until smooth and elastic.
- Shape the dough into a loaf and place into 8 1/2 or 9 inch non-stick loaf pan. Cover the pan with a clean dish towel and allow rising for about an hour.
- Preheat the oven to 375F. Using a sharp knife, score the loaf length wise with a sharp knife. The score the loaf 3 times at equal intervals across. This makes a professional looking loaf and helps it bake evenly (which I forgot to do this step on the brioche in the photo, oops! As you can see, it still turns out fine though)
- Bake for 30-40 minutes, or until golden. Remove from pan and place the loaf on its side on a cooling rack. Alternate side after 5 minutes (this prevents the loaf from compressing)

I love to make bread from time to time (of course, with the breadmaker - I am not that advanced!) and have the whole house smelling like a bakery! Thank you for posting this recipe - I will try it!elgab89 in Toronto loved it
Wonderful post! Thanks for the recipe.valinkenmore in Malott loved it
I made this bread this weekend and it was wonderful - hubby said to make it again for Easter - not a week away - so that is a big endorsement. When I make it next time, I am going to try and make Brioche Rolls for Easter. A definite high 5 from me!valinkenmore in Malott loved it
