500 grams.Of all-purpose flour.

50 grams.Of granulated sugar.

10 grams.Of active dry yeast.

250 milliliters.Of warm milk.

4 large eggs.

A pinch.Of salt.

150 grams.Of unsalted butter, softened.


1 large egg.

1 large spoon.Of milk.


1st Step 

Mix the warm milk and sugar in a small bowl. Stir the mixture until the sugar is gone. Spread the yeast on top of the milk mixture and let it sit for 5–10 minutes, or until it starts to foam.

2nd Step 

Mix the flour and salt together in a big bowl. Make a well in the middle and pour the yeast mixture into it. Then, add the eggs one by one, mixing each one in completely before adding the next.

3rd Step 

Mix the ingredients together until a sticky dough forms. You can do this with a wooden spoon or an electric machine with a dough hook tool.

4th Step 

When the butter was soft, cut it into small pieces. Add the butter to the dough in small amounts, mixing well after each one. Keep working the dough for about 10 to 15 minutes, or until it is smooth, stretchy, and just a little bit sticky.

5th Step 

Form the dough into a ball and put it in a bowl that has been greased. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap or a clean cooking towel and put it in a warm place without drafts for about an hour or two, or until the dough has doubled in size.

6th Step

Once the dough has risen, gently press down on it with your hands to make it flat again. Put the dough on a surface that has been lightly dusted with flour.

7th Step 

Depending on how big you want your brioches to be, divide the dough into equal parts. Form each piece into a ball by pulling the sides under so that the top is smooth.

8th Step 

Place the dough balls on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper, leaving enough room between them so they can grow during the second rise. Cover the baking sheet with a clean dish towel and let the dough balls rise for another 1–2 hours, or until they double in size.

9th Step 

Set your oven to 180°C (350°F) in the meantime. Whisk the egg and milk together in a small bowl until they are well-mixed.

10th Step 

Brush the egg wash on top of the dough balls, being careful not to flatten them. Put the baking sheet in an oven that has already been warm for about 15 to 20 minutes, or until the top of the brioche is golden brown.

11th Step 

Take the Homemade Milk Brioche out of the oven and place them on a wire rack to cool down. Serve them warm or at room temperature with butter, jam, honey, or any other spread you like.
