Easy Brioche

    7 hours 40 minutes

    This is wonderful sweet homemade bread that is easy to make; I love to bake it on weekends and fill the house with the fresh bread smell.

    • 2 teaspoons salt
    • 1/4 cup (60g) caster sugar
    • 4 eggs
    • 170g unsalted butter, softened

    1. Brioche Dough: Pour the flour into a large bowl. Add the salt, sugar, eggs, softened butter and yeast into the centre. Mix well to form a dough. Place a plate on top of the bowl and let rise overnight (or for 6-7 hours).
    2. On a floured surface roll the dough out and fold into four. Repeat the process once. Form a roll and cut into 8 or 10 pieces. Transfer to a buttered loaf tin. Let rise in a warm area until the top of the dough reaches the edges of the tin.
    3. Meanwhile, preheat the oven to 150 degrees C.
    4. Bake the brioche in preheated oven for 20-25 minutes. Remove from the oven and immediately brush with sugar glaze.
    5. Glaze: Make the glaze by combining water with icing sugar until smooth. Set aside.

    This looks terrific. How many Brioche buns does this make?  -  01 Jan 2014


    Something else. This was truly a really simple recipe. Though it certainly took more than a tsp of tepid water to dissolve 2 sachets of yeast. I used more like 3 tbs. I also added raisins and cinnamon when folding the dough and sprinkled golden granulated sugar over the top before baking instead of using the sugar glaze. Will definitely be making this again.  -  16 Jan 2011  (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)


    good but is it strong plain flour or normal plain flour?  -  15 Jun 2013  (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)
