You have asked me for this Milk Brioche recipe so many times on Instagram that I absolutely had to put it on the blog!

This is the basic recipe for milk brioche. You can add a square of chocolate in the center of each or add chocolate chips in the dough at the end of kneading. You choose!

Milk Brioche

Prep: 20min | Rest: 2h30 | Proofing: 1h | Cooking: 15min | 16 milk brioche buns


1-In your standing robot add: Flour + Salt + Sugar. Mix with a spoon (to prevent the yeast from coming into contact with salt or sugar).

2- Then add the eggs, milk and dry yeast. Mix with the dough hook for about 5 minutes at the minimum speed (I set to 1 or 2)

3- Then mix again for 8 to 10 minutes at medium speed (4 or 5)

4- Add the butter in pieces. Mix slowly until the butter is incorporated into the dough and there are no more pieces.

5- Mix again at medium speed until the dough isn’t sticky. The dough should be soft when you touch it.

6- Put the dough in a bowl & let stand at room temperature for 30 min.

7- Remove the air by pinching in it & form it back to a ball. Place it in a salad bowl (covered with film paper) and place it in the fridge for 2 hours.

8- Time to shape it. I personally separate mine into 50g of dough. You can make it as you want

9- Take a piece of dough, flatten it with the palm of your hand (put a square of chocolate in the center if you wish). Then put back into a small ball by pulling the outside back in the center. And roll.

10- Egg wash each of them & proof at room temperature 30-45min (your brioche must double their volume) – if you want to do a little cut for decoration, do it after 15min of proofing.

11- Egg wash again, & bake at 175°C / 350°F for about 10 to 15 minutes depending on your oven
