Brioche Buns

 These are sweet and soft and make a nice loaf of bread roll or even hamburger buns.

You will need:
  • 3/4 cup (6oz.) warm water
  • 1/3 cup warm milk
  • 2 tsp dry yeast
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • 2 eggs
  • 3 cups bread or all purpose flour
  • 3 tbsp unsalted butter - room temperature
  • 1 tsp salt

Step 1: let the warm water, warm milk, yeast and honey sit for 5 minutes to make sure the yeast is activated.

Step 2: in a stand mixer with the paddle attachment add flour, salt and butter.

Step 3: add the eggs and yeast mix and beat 5 minutes. 

Step 4: remove the paddle and cover with plastic wrap. Let rise 2 hours until doubled.

Step 5: remove the dough to a lightly floured counter and knead a few times until it comes together in a nice ball. Divide into balls for buns or rolls or roll up for a single loaf of bread and place in a buttered loaf pan.

Step 6: brush with melted butter and place on an oiled baking sheet or use parchment paper. Cover and let rise for a final 30-45 minutes.

Bake in 375 degree F oven until browned and baked through. 20-25 minutes

Let cool slightly before slicing or serve warm if you made small rolls. This is also an excellent bread to freeze any leftovers and use for a bread pudding or french toast.
