Brioche Recipe

Yields1 Serving

For many people a bread called Brioche is an intimidating recipe, but it’s actually very easy to make in your bread machine. It’s a very rich bread made with milk, sugar, eggs and lots of butter. The result is a very fine texture that has a soft crumb and is flaky on the outside. Brioche is often used as a base for French toast or bread puddings but makes a great accompaniment to any meal at any time of day. It goes particularly well with savory dishes like stews or steaks and is always welcome at a barbecue with chicken or pork.

INGREDIENTS:
 3⁄4 teaspoon salt
 3 tablespoons sugar
 1⁄4 cup warm milk + 2 tablespoons warm water (110° F.)
 2 whole eggs
 1 egg yolk
 1 3⁄4 cups bread flour + 2 tablespoons bread flour
 1 3⁄4 teaspoons active dry yeast
 8 tablespoons unsalted butter (room temperature)
DIRECTIONS:
1

Add all ingredients except the butter to the bread pan in the order indicated in the recipe but reserve the butter.

3

Once the cycle is complete, let the loaf rise and bake and then let rest in the machine for 20 minutes.
