Easy Brioche

We are addicted to brioche buns from Save on Foods. If you have had McDonald’s burgers you know what kind of buns I am referring to.  They just make your burgers so much better.  I decided to try to make them instead of dreaming about them.

The recipe is mostly the same as any milk buns.  Add honey, yeast, warm milk and eggs together in a bowl and mix well.

Add flour slowly. I would start with 2.5-3 cups of flour and then add more if needed. You want the dough to come together and form a ball.

After kneading, oil the surface and place in a warm place to rise. Allow to rise until double the size or 45-60 minutes.

Cut into 8 pieces if you want burger sized buns.

Fold the dough over to get a smooth surface.  Pinch the undersides of buns together and place the pinched side onto the parchment paper.

Set aside and allow to rise until the buns are doubled in size about 30-45 min.

Put an egg wash on.

Bake the buns for 15-20 minutes.

Not as soft as the Save-on Foods buns but still delicious. Who doesn’t like fresh baked bread?

Easy Brioche Buns

  • 2/3 cup milk warm
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons instant yeast
  • 2 tablespoons  honey 
  • 4 tablespoons butter melted
  • 2  eggs room temperature
  • about 3-4 cups of all-purpose flour (start with less and add as you go)
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 egg (for egg wash)

In a bowl, mix together the milk, yeast, honey, butter and eggs.  Mix well. Slowly add flour a little at a time until a soft dough forms. You want the dough for a ball but stay soft.  Don’t add too much flour. Knead the dough for about 8-10 minutes. Make the dough into a ball and rub some oil on the surface. Place dough in a warm location and allow the dough to double in size. (about 45 minutes -1  hour)

After an hour, divide the dough into 8 pieces. Fold the dough over in your palm and form a ball. Pinch together the dough and place the pinched side down on the parchment paper. Allow to rise for another 30-45 minutes.

Preheat the oven to 400 Degrees.  Make an egg wash by beating one egg and a little water.  Coat each bun lightly with a thin coat of egg.  Bake for about 15-20 minutes.
