Instructions:

Step 1: Prepare the Dough

 

Mix Dry Ingredients: In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour, sugar, salt, and instant yeast.

Add Wet Ingredients: Add the eggs and warm milk to the dry mixture. Mix until the dough starts to

come together.

Knead the Dough: Knead the dough on a lightly floured surface until it is smooth and elastic. This

can take about 10 minutes if kneading by hand, or 5-7 minutes with a stand mixer fitted with a dough

hook.

Incorporate the Butter: Gradually add the softened butter to the dough, one piece at a time,

ensuring each piece is fully incorporated before adding the next. The dough should be smooth and

shiny once all the butter is incorporated.

Step 2: First Rise

 

Let It Rise: Place the dough in a lightly greased bowl, cover it with a clean kitchen towel or plastic

wrap, and let it rise in a warm place until it doubles in size. This will take about 1-2 hours.

Step 3: Shape the Brioche

 

Deflate the Dough: Once the dough has doubled in size, gently deflate it by punching it down.

Shape the Dough: Divide the dough into equal pieces and shape them into balls. Arrange the balls in

a greased loaf pan or on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.

Step 4: Second Rise

 

Second Proofing: Cover the shaped dough with a kitchen towel and let it rise again until it doubles in

size. This will take about 1 hour.

Step 5: Bake the Brioche

Preheat the Oven: Preheat your oven to 180°C (350°F).

Egg Wash and Toppings: Beat the remaining egg and brush it over the top of the brioche for a shiny,

golden crust. Sprinkle pearl sugar on top if desired.

Bake: Bake the brioche in the preheated oven for 25-30 minutes or until the top is golden brown and

a skewer inserted into the center comes out clean.

Step 6: Cool and Serve

Cool: Allow the brioche to cool in the pan for 10 minutes before transferring it to a wire rack to cool

completely.

Serve: Enjoy your homemade brioche bread plain, with butter, or your favorite jam.

Conclusion

 

This fluffy brioche bread is perfect for breakfast, brunch, or as a delightful snack. Its soft texture and

rich flavor make it a favorite for all ages. Whether you enjoy it with a cup of coffee or as a base for

French toast, this brioche will surely become a staple in your baking repertoire.
