Delicious and easy to prepare brioche – perfect for your next brunch or breakfast.


  • 0.7 oz. (21g) fresh yeast
  • 1 cup (250ml) lukewarm milk
  • 17,6 oz. (500g) all-purpose flour
  • 2 oz. (60g) sugar
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 oz. (60g) butter, at room temperature
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 12 tbsp. coarse sugar


  1. Mix the fresh yeast with the milk until completely dissolved. Mix the flour with sugar and salt in a large bowl. Add the yeast milk and egg and knead. While the machine is running, add the butter in small pieces and continue kneading for about 20 minutes. Cover the dough in the bowl and let rise in a warm place for about 60 minutes.
  2. Grease a loaf pan and set aside. Place the dough on a floured surface and knead with your hands for 2-3 minutes. Divide in 3 equal pieces, form long rolls and braid. Place in the prepared pan, cover and let rise for another 50-60 minutes.
  3. Preheat the oven to 300°F (150°C). Brush the loaf with the egg yolk and sprinkle with coarse sugar. Bake for 35-40 minutes – if the top gets too dark, cover with some aluminum foil. Remove the brioche from the oven and let cool down completely on a wire rack.


  • Enjoy baking!
