Serves 1 loaf :
1 sachet easy blend yeast (7g)
20 g unsalted butter, diced
4 g salt
125 ml milk
40 g caster sugar
250 g bread flour
1 egg, beaten
1Put all of the ingredients except the egg into the metal bowl. Start the BREAD/
BRIOCHE programme. If the ingredients are not well combined, scrape down the
wall of the bowl with a spatula* and restart the programme by pressing Auto.
2Place the dough (it should be sticky) in a floured bowl. Cover with a damp cloth
and set aside to rise for 30 minutes.
3Preheat the oven to 60 °C (50 °C fan, gas mark ¼). Place the dough on a floured
work surface, divide into 3 equal portions and roll using your fingertips to form
3 long ropes of dough. If it starts to stick, dust with flour from time to time. Lay the
ropes parallel, pinch one end to hold them together and loosely plait; pinch the
other end. Place in a buttered loaf tin; set aside to rise in the oven for 30 minutes.
4Remove the brioche from the oven and increase the temperature to 180 °C (170 °C
fan, gas mark 4). Brush the top with the beaten egg, so it will be shiny and golden
when baked. Bake for 20 minutes. If the brioche colours too quickly, cover with
aluminium foil.
5Cool slightly before turning out; serve warm.
