Brioches can be made in various shapes, such as rolls, knots, or buns, and can be flavored with a variety of ingredients, such as chocolate, raisins, or nuts. They are also commonly used as a base for sandwiches or as a complement to savory dishes.

Brioches are a classic French pastry and are popular all over the world. They can be found in most bakeries and pastry shops, and are often enjoyed for special occasions or as a treat.

Here's a recipe for fluffy brioches:


  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 1/4 tsp active dry yeast (1 packet)
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup whole milk, warmed
  • 4 tbsp unsalted butter, melted
  • 2 eggs, at room temperature
  • 1 egg yolk, for brushing
  • Pearl sugar, for topping


  1. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, yeast, and salt.
  2. In a separate bowl, whisk together the warm milk, melted butter, and eggs.
  3. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and mix with a wooden spoon until a sticky dough forms.
  4. Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface and knead for 8-10 minutes, until the dough is smooth and elastic.
  5. Transfer the dough to a lightly greased bowl, cover with a clean dish towel, and let rise in a warm, draft-free place for 1-2 hours or until the dough has doubled in size.
  6. Preheat your oven to 375°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  7. Punch down the risen dough and divide it into 12 equal pieces. Roll each piece into a ball and place on the prepared baking sheet, leaving a few inches between each ball.
  8. Cover the dough balls with a clean dish towel and let rise for another 20-30 minutes.
  9. Whisk the egg yolk in a small bowl and brush over the top of each brioche. Sprinkle with pearl sugar.
  10. Bake the brioches for 18-20 minutes, until golden brown and cooked through.
  11. Transfer to a wire rack to cool before serving.
