Bread Machine Brioche


Why hadn’t I ever thought of this before? What a heavenly breakfast!! My friend asked for help searching for a bread machine brioche recipe- I found this one from Fleichmann’s yeast, via, all over the blogosphere. My friend tried it first and couldn’t even wait for the bread to cool before digging in- the smell was so amazing. 🙂 I had to make it myself, of course! It was eggy and tender. We smothered it with Strawberry-Vanilla Bean Jam (which we have been rationing since last June!) and enjoyed it as we watched the snow pour down outside…. on the last day of March!! I may add raisins next time- GREAT!

Yield: One 1 1/2 pound loaf

  • 3 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1/2 cup butter or 1/2 cup margarine, softened, cut into small pieces
  • 1/3 cup milk (70º to 80ºF) (I used 1% milk)
  • 3 tablespoons water (70º to 80ºF)
  • 3/4 teaspoon coarse salt
  • 3 cups bread flour
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons bread machine yeast
  1. Measure all ingredients into bread machine pan in the order suggested by manufacturer.
  2. Process on sweet or basic/white bread cycle; use light or medium/normal crust color setting.
  3. Remove bread from pan; cool on wire rack.

    I told Evan it was against all the rules of bread making but the hot slice with butter at 9 p.m. was so worth it!! Thank you for finding us a winner!!!!

  2. Sounds amazing! I wouldn’t have been able to wait either.. And would have dug right in!! 🙂 I really new to get a bread machine..

  3. I reallyreally want to make brioche, and yours looks great 🙂

  4. I was just thinking the other day that I really enjoy a good brioche, and that all burger buns should be brioche buns. Your loaf looks delicious, Josette!

    • It came out really well- super easy in a bread machine. Not so difficult to make out of the bread machine either, I suppose. 🙂 This recipe could easily be done on the dough setting and then braided or shaped into rolls prior to baking in the oven too. It was delicious!

    Excellent bread! I just started using a bread machine and some recipes come out terrible. I’ve tried making pumpkin bread 6 times in my bread machine and every time it turns out super dense and not too flavorful like when I make it by hand. Maybe I should try a different setting.

    Anyways, great recipe, it turned out very tasty and fluffy. I’m excited to make French toast tomorrow (it’s currently staling itself I. The open air).

    Thank you for sharing your recipe. I made the bread tonight. I followed all the ingredients and steps. After it’s baked, it smelled heavenly ! However, after cutting a few slices, there was a huge hole inside the bread. What might have caused that? I have an Oster bread machine and I chose 1.5 lb size and sweet setting.

    • Before answering your comment, I just read a little bit about this issue. It seems that large holes are typically caused by excess yeast or simply trapped air bubbles. I would try to make it again! I hope that you still enjoyed the yummy loaf. 🙂

    I found your recipe several months ago for this bread and I am so glad I did. This bread is wonderful. Thank you!

    Looks wonderful!! How would 3/4 teaspoon coarse salt translate to regular table salt??

    Has anyone added any potato flakes to this recipe?? Wondering if it would help keep it moist….
