On sunday, I decided to try making brioche... little did I know the dough had to rest for AGES!! It was all worth it in the end. I found the brioche better the next day, and we really enjoyed eating it at breakfast - plain or with nutella. I took the recipe from Cyril Lignac's C'est moi qui cuisine... Oui Chef! Tome 4. I really like his recipes because they are fairly simple. I found the brioche maybe a bit too egg-y so reducing the number of eggs could be a solution - up to you! Nonetheless it was very good!!


  • 6 eggs
  • 180g butter
  • 3cl of milk
  • 500g of flour
  • 30g of sugar
  • 20g of baking powder (use the same one you would use for bread)
  • 10g of salt
  1. In a mixer, mix the flour, eggs, milk, sugar, salt and baking powder for about 5mins at medium speed. 
  2. Add the butter cut in pieces and mix further. 
  3. Put the dough in the fridge to rest for the next 3 hours. 
  4. Remove from the fridge and put the dough in a buttered baking pan. Let the dough rise in the pan for about 2 hours. 
  5. Preheat oven at 180 degrees celsius. 
  6. Bake for about 25-30 minutes (more if you are making a bigger brioche) Wait till your knife goes through the brioche and comes back neat. Then take out of the oven. 
  7. Enjoy!

* You could make designs on your brioche.
* You can add various fruits for a fruity brioche.
