As a German I am a bit obsessed with creating the perfect bun. It has taken me quite a while to find the perfect combination of ingredients to make these absolutely gorgeous brioche buns. This recipe is very simple and requires minimal effort but the end result is a dream come true for bread lovers. 



For the dough:

  • 220 ml whole milk
  • 50 g caster sugar
  • 1 sachet dry active yeast
  • 80 g butter cubed
  • 500 g plain flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 egg

For the egg wash:

  • 2 eggs


  1. Place milk, sugar and yeast in the mixing bowl then warm up 2 Min. / 37°C / Speed 2.

  2. Add the butter, flour, egg and salt then knead until smooth on setting 2 Min. / Kneading function.

  3. Cover the dough and leave to rise for two hours. Once risen, take the dough out of the bowl and place onto a floured surface.

  4. Cut the dough into six even pieces and form balls. Place onto a baking tray lined with greaseproof paper. If you prefer smaller buns, divide the dough into 8 pieces. Cover with a tea towel and leave to rest for another 30 minutes.
  5. Preheat your oven to 200°C.
  6. Uncover the tray. Place 1 egg and 1 egg yolk in a small bowl and whisk with a fork. Brush the buns very gently with egg wash then bake in the oven for 15-20 minutes until golden brown. Tip: They are done when you tap them and they sound hollow. 

  7. Remove from oven and leave to cool on the tray. Enjoy!
