Lazy Gender Free Brioche
This recipe is a synthesis of two recipes. I like this recipe because you don’t have to use the mixer. The technique is based on what I saw on Cooks Illustrated. Except I don’t enjoy eating that much butter, and the recipe is based on Floyds Lazy Mans Brioche.
500g bread flour
15g instant yeast
1 stick (113g) unsalted butter, diced
1/2 cup chocolate chips (optional)
a pinch of salt
a teaspoon water
500g bread flour (approx 3 1/2cup)
250g cool milk (approx 1 1/4cup)
50g sugar (approx 1/4cup)
15g instant yeast (2 tsp)(note 1 packet is 2 1/4 tsp)
5g salt (1 tsp)
1 stick (113g) unsalted butter, diced (cold)
The technique comes from a Cooks Illustrated Recipe

Mix eggs milk and sugar together. Melt and let butter cool a bit , then whisk in butter to egg mixture.
Then combine with flour mixture. Mix up thoroughly . Let stand 10 minutes
Stetch Fold and turn in Bowl at 30 minute intervals 4 times. Cover tightly put in refridgerate for 16 to 48 hours.
Then I followed what Floyd did
except I made my rolls 2.75 ounces, so that they would be easier to release from the pan.
