This beginner friendly bread recipe makes just one loaf of soft brioche bread! It's a super fun dough to work with!
Here are the ingredients you'll need to make this soft brioche bread loaf!
Flour | Honey | Whole Milk Egg | Salt | Yeast | Butter
Whisk together flour, salt, and yeast in a stand mixer bowl.
In a separate container, whisk together milk, honey, and egg.
Mix with a dough hook until combined, then knead until smooth and elastic.
Add butter one tablespoon at a time, giving each piece time to incorporate completely before adding more.
Knead until the dough passes the windowpane test.
Shape into a ball, cover, and let rise 1 hour or until doubled in size.
Deflate the dough and shape into 8 equal pieces.
Shape each piece into a tight ball.
Arrange in rows in a greased and lined loaf pan, cover and let rise 1 hour or until doubled in size.
Brush with egg wash and bake.
Let cool in the pan briefly, then remove to a rack to cool completely.
With this shaping method the brioche is super soft and can be pulled apart or sliced for sandwiches and French toast!
