Brioche Buns

Light and airy, yet dense enough to hold up to any hamburger or sandwich. Homemade brioche rolls are easy to make and better than store-bought.

  • 1 cup water
  • 3 Tablespoons milk
  • 2 1/4 teaspoons yeast
  • 2 Tablespoons sugar
  • 3 cups bread flour
  • 1/3 - 1/2 cup All-Purpose flour
  • 2 Large Eggs (1 reserved)
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 3 Tablespoons unsalted butter cubed (softened)


  • Heat water and milk in the microwave to 110-115 degrees. Add yeast and 1 Tablespoon of sugar.
  • Allow yeast mixture to sit until frothy. Usually, this takes about 5 to 10 minutes.
  • While waiting for yeast, mix flours, sugar, salt, and butter in the stand mixer using the paddle attachment. The mixture should resemble coarse cornmeal when finished.
  • Add one of the eggs and yeast mixture to the flour.
  • Change to the dough hook and knead on low speed for 6 to 8 minutes.
  • The dough should be smooth and not too sticky. Add additional flour if needed.
  • Remove the dough from mixing bowl and place in a separate greased bowl. Cover with a clean towel or plastic wrap.
  • Allow to double in size. This usually takes about an hour.
  • Once the dough has risen, remove it from the bowl and press it down to remove the air.
  • Cut the dough into 8 equal pieces.
  • Roll each piece into a ball and tuck loose ends underneath. Place each ball (bun) onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or silicone baking sheet.
  • Cover buns with a clean towel again and allow to rise a second time.
  • In the meantime, place an oven-safe bowl of water in an oven preheated to 400 degrees. There should be enough water to create steam.
  • Make an egg wash by mixing the remaining egg and 1 to 2 Tablespoons of water.
  • After the buns have risen a second time, use a pastry brush to apply the egg wash to each bun.
  • Place the buns in the oven and bake for 12 to 15 minutes or until golden brown.
  • Serve immediately. Enjoy!
