Cooking recipes - How to make Brioche?


  • 500 g flour T 45
  • 3 tablespoons of sugar
  • 1 sachet of vanilla sugar
  • 9 g dry baker's yeast
  • 1 egg white
  • 3 tablespoons oil
  • 200 ml warm milk
  • 2 tablespoons soft butter
  • Half a teaspoon of salt

To garnish

  • Hazelnut spread or Nutella
  • Crushed almonds
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1 teaspoon of instant coffee

Steps for making Brioche:

Pour the sifted flour, sugar, dry baking powder, vanilla sugar and salt into a bowl.

Mix the powders with a spatula, then add the egg white and oil.

Start kneading with your hands and then add the warm milk.

Continue kneading until you have a smooth roll.

At this point add the soft butter and knead it into the dough.

Transfer the dough to a lightly floured work surface and continue kneading for at least 5 minutes.

Shape into a ball and place in a bowl.

Cover with cling film and leave to rise for an hour.

After an hour, take the risen dough, transfer it to a lightly floured work surface and, using a rolling pin, roll it out into a rectangle about 1cm thick.

Cut out eight squares and place a tablespoon of hazelnut spread or Nutella on each square.

Close each square by forming a small ball and place in a buttered and floured 28cm tin, seven small balls along the edge and one in the centre.

Leave to rise for a further 15 minutes. After 15 minutes, brush with the beaten egg and dissolve the instant coffee.

With sharp scissors make a deep cross-shaped cut in each bun (the buns should almost open) and add a little more nutella and crushed almonds.

Bake in a preheated oven at 180°C for 40/45 minutes. Your brioche is ready, soft, fluffy and very tasty!
