  • 1 2/3 cups plain flour
  • 2 3/4 oz butter
  • 2 eggs + 1 egg yolk
  • 1 tbsp yeast
  • 3 tbsp + 1 tsp sugar
  • 1/3 cup warm milk
  • 1 pinch salt


  • Stir together the flour with the yeast and make a hole in the middle.
  • Gradually pour the warm milk into the hole.
  • Add the sugar and salt and then butter, piece by piece, the same with the eggs, bit by bit.
  • Knead the dough until smooth then cover for two hours until it doubles in size.
  • Work the dough again then place in a rectangular greased pan (alternatively you can divide the dough into 3/4 balls before placing in the pan mould).
  • Cover and let the dough for another hour until it doubles in size again.
  • Preheat the oven at 400 degrees F.
  • Brush the brioche with the egg yolk and tsp sugar.
