Brioche bread


  • In a mixer’s bowl add the milk, yeast, honey, eggs, flour, salt, and beat them with the hook attachment at medium speed, for 4-5 minutes, until you get a uniform mixture. 
  • Add the 60 g butter at room temperature and beat for another 2-3 minutes until absorbed by the dough.
  • Remove the bowl from the mixer and transfer the dough to a lightly greased bowl
  • Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and leave it at room temperature for 1 hour or until the dough doubles in size.
  • Transfer the dough to your work surface, that is already dusted with flour, and roll it out into a 30x45 cm parallelogram sheet, having the large side towards you.
  • Spread the ice-cold butter lengthwise over half of the dough. 
  • Fold the rest of the dough to cover the butter, pressing it to stick the edges.
  • Refrigerate the dough for 2 hours, until firm.
  • Place the cold dough on your floured work surface again and roll it out into a 30x40 cm parallelogram sheet, having the large side towards you. 
  • Mentally divide the large side of the dough into 4 equal parts. 
  • Bring the ¼ from the left to the center by folding it.
  • Bring the ¼ from the right to the center by folding it.
  • Fold the one side on top of the other (like a parcel) in order to create a rectangle with the dough. 
  • Wrap the dough with plastic wrap and refrigerate it for 2 hours.
  • Butter two 10x22 cm loaf tins
  • Roll out the dough again into a 30x45 cm parallelogram sheet and wrap it from the large side into a big roll. 
  • Cut the dough lengthwise in half, in order to get two equal rolls, and transfer one roll in each loaf tin.
  • Cover each loaf tin with a dish towel and allow 45-50 minutes for the dough to double in size.
  • Preheat the oven to 180οC (350ο F) set to fan.
