3 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1 packet active dry yeast
1/2 cup warm milk
3 large eggs
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
Egg wash (1 egg beaten with a splash of milk)
Pearl sugar (optional, for topping)


  1. Yeast Activation: In a bowl, combine warm milk and granulated sugar. Sprinkle the active dry yeast over the mixture. Let it sit for about 5-10 minutes until foamy.
  1. Mixing the Dough: In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the flour and salt. Make a well in the center and add the yeast mixture, eggs, and softened butter. Mix until a soft dough forms.
  2. Kneading and Rising: Transfer the dough to a lightly floured surface and knead for about 10 minutes until smooth and elastic. Place the dough in a greased bowl, cover with a damp cloth, and let it rise in a warm place for about 1-2 hours or until doubled in size.
  3. Shaping and Second Rise: Punch down the risen dough and shape it into a loaf or divide it into smaller portions for buns. Place the shaped dough on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Cover and let it rise for another 30-45 minutes.
  4. Baking: Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Brush the risen dough with the egg wash and sprinkle pearl sugar on top for added sweetness and texture. Bake in the preheated oven for about 25-30 minutes or until the brioche is golden brown and sounds hollow when tapped.
  1. Cooling and Enjoying: Once baked, let the milk brioche cool on a wire rack before slicing. Serve it plain, toasted, or with your favorite spreads.
