4 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1 tablespoon active dry yeast
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup warm milk
4 large eggs
1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
1 egg yolk, beaten with 1 teaspoon of water


1.In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, yeast, and salt.
2.In a separate bowl, combine the warm milk and eggs.
3.Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and mix until a shaggy dough forms.
4.Add the softened butter and knead the dough on a lightly floured surface until smooth and elastic, about 10 minutes.
5.Place the dough in a greased bowl, cover with a clean kitchen towel, and let it rise in a warm place for 1-2 hours or until doubled in size.
6.Punch down the dough and divide it into equal portions. Shape each portion into a ball and place them in a greased loaf pan.
7.Cover the pan with a towel and let the dough rise for another 1 hour or until it reaches the rim of the pan.
8.Preheat the oven to 375°F (190°C).
9.Brush the top of the brioche with the beaten egg yolk mixture.
10.Bake for 25-30 minutes or until the brioche is golden brown and sounds hollow when tapped on the bottom.
11.Remove the brioche from the pan and let it cool on a wire rack before serving.

This delicious and fluffy brioche is a perfect treat for breakfast or dessert. It’s great on its own or spread with butter and jam. Enjoy!
