The Perfect Brioche Bread Recipe

The Asian milk bread came out quite well. When I say that we have spent months looking for the perfect buttery, fluffy milk bread recipe and that each time we have failed horribly, I am not joking. Right up till we ripped it off!

This dish has been quite popular ever since it was initially posted on January 17, 2015. Recently, there have been enhancements to the instructions, pictures, and often asked questions section. The recipe is the same; nothing has changed. Have leisurely fun!

But this is brioche bread: buttery, rich, and somewhat soft. It tastes fantastic and is also very simple to prepare. Perfect on its own, in sandwiches, even with French toast. Brioche Burger Buns and Cinnamon Rolls are now within your cooking reach. This recipe will guide you in making actual brioche bread.


  • 2/3 cup heavy cream, at room temperature
  • 1 cup milk (full-fat, 1%, or 2%), at room temperature
  • 1 large egg, at room temperature
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 4 cups all-purpose flour (or 3 1/2 cups bread flour + 1/2 cup cake flour)
  • 1/2 tsp instant yeast or 1/2 tbsp active dry yeast
  • 1/2 tsp salt


  1. Place the heavy cream, milk, egg, sugar, flours, yeast, and salt in the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with a dough hook attachment.
  2. Start mixing on low speed ("stir" setting) for 15 minutes until the dough is well combined and smooth. Add more flour if needed until the dough pulls away from the sides of the bowl.
  3. Cover the dough with a damp towel and let it rise in a warm place until doubled in size, about 1-2 hours. Place a cup of just boiling water next to the dough to help with proofing.
  4. Once doubled, return the dough to the mixer and mix for another 5 minutes to remove any air bubbles.
  5. Divide the dough into two equal portions. Shape each portion into a rectangle and place in greased loaf pans or shape into rolls and place in round pans.
  6. Cover and let the dough rise again for another hour.
  7. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Brush the risen dough with egg wash.
  8. Bake for 23-25 minutes until golden brown. Brush with sugar water immediately after baking for shine and sweetness.
  9. Remove from oven and let cool before slicing and serving.

Enjoy your homemade brioche bread!
