Easy Brioche Dough

        3 large eggs

        1/2 cup butter (1 stick), softened

        1/2 cup milk (70º to 80ºF)

        1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt

        3 cups bread flour

        1/4 cup sugar

        1 3/4 teaspoons instant yeast


Measure all ingredients into bread machine pan in the order suggested by manufacturer.

Process on the dough cycle. When it has doubled in size proceed with your recipe for rolls or bread, incorporating one more (doubling) rise after forming. Bake at 325- 350 degrees F. Cool completely, on wire rack, before cutting.

Beautiful!  Debbe, did you shape this into a double braid?  I've made Brioche roll dough in my breadmaker, and want to use your recipe for a loaf.  I'd appreciate your sharing your shaping technique. 

Thanks, Jo

Hi Jo,,

2 braids, one slightly larger braid on the bottom. Really easy but looks impressive:)
