  • Flour (300 gr)
  • Milk (3,5 fl oz)
  • Soft butter (not melted) 50 gr
  • Sugar (30 gr)
  • Baker's yeast (10 gr)
  • 1 egg + 1 egg yolk (to brown the brioche before baking)
  • Salt (4 gr)


  • 1. Dissolve the baker's yeast in the cold milk & whisk.
  • 2. In the bowl of your food processor, put the flour, salt, sugar, butter, the egg and milk with the yeast.
  • 3. Knead until you get a dough (about 1 minute)
  • 4. Place the dough in a lightly floured bowl, cover with a cloth and let it rest for 30 minutes at room temperature
  • 5. Divide the dough into 3 equal parts, roll out long loaves of bread on the countertop and make a braid.
  • 6. Put the braid in your pre-buttered cake pan and let it rest for 1 hour at room temperature
  • 7. Use the egg-yolk and brush the braid
  • 8. Put in the preheated oven (355°) for 20 minutes. (If the brioche gets too brown, put a piece of tin foil on the top)
  • 9. Let cool down 5/10 min before removing from the pan
  • 10. Take a picture, send it on @hasta_paris instagram and eat!

Et voilà!
