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 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!

    A good loaf. Mother liked it. I was expecting more of a pastry like quality. But what do I know. It's my first brioche.

    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!
