How To Make Fluffy Brioche Bread

  1. Place the milk, yeast, egg, and 1 cup of flour in the bowl and mix with a spatula until combined.
  2. Sprinkle the remaining cup of flour on top and let it rest for 30 minutes.
  3. After that check there are cracks in the flour.
  4. Add the sugar, salt, eggs, and 1 cup of the flour to the sponge. Fit the bowl on your stand mixer, and mix for 1 minute, until the dough starts to come together. After that add the remaining 1/2 cup of flour.
  5. After that mix for 15 minutes in grinder. After 10 minutes have passed, if the dough seems too loose, add 3 additional tablespoons of flour, to help the dough form into a cohesive piece.
  6. Now add the butter, a couple pats at a time, waiting until each installment of butter is absorbed before adding the next. When all the butter has been added, mix for 5 minutes with your grinder. The dough will be soft and slightly sticky.
  7. Cover the bowl tightly with plastic wrap, and let it rest for 2 hours, until it has doubled in size.
  8. Using a spatula, gently turn the dough upside down and compact it back to its original volume.
  9. Cover the bowl again and put it in the refrigerator overnight.
  10. With a sharp knife, gently slice your dough into 3 sections. Cut each section into 6 pieces. You may gently roll those pieces into balls.
  11. Take a pan for baking and grease them.Place 6 balls each into each pan, then cover with plastic wrap. Let rise for 2 hours.
  12. When you are ready to bake, preheat the oven to 375F, and bake the loaves for about 30 minutes. After that your brioche bread is ready to serve.
