A few weeks ago, I was able to live one of my life-long dreams! Granted, it’s only a small part of my dream, but it was still an amazing, fun experience! A short course in Viennoiseries at Le Cordon Bleu was everything I dreamed it would be, and more!

What is brioche?

Brioche bread is a French bread, and a cross between a pastry and bread.

This is because the bread is enriched with butter and eggs. It belongs to the family of viennoisseries (think croissants, Danish pastries, sweet rolls etc.). It’s a very buttery, soft and delicious bread and can be made into sweet brioche or savory brioche.


500ml (2 cups) warm milk
7g (1 1/2 tsp) dry yeast
100g (0.5 cup) brown sugar
60ml (0.3 cup) oil
1 tbsp vinegar
1 tsp salt
2 eggs
750g (6 cups) flour
50g (0.2 cup) butter

For coating and sleeping brioches:

1 egg yolk + 15ml (1 tbsp) of milk
20 g sesame seeds


Pour warm milk into a deep bowl, then add sugar and yeast, stir, cover and let stand for 15 minutes. Then add oil, vinegar, salt, eggs, mix everything and gradually add flour.

Knead a fine, sticky dough, then add the cubes of softened butter and knead with the dough.
Leave the dough, covered, to stand, 2 hours. Divide the dough into 9 balls of 170 grams each.

Arrange the balls on a baking tray, which you have lined with baking paper. When you have arranged all the balls, cover them with a kitchen cloth and leave for 30 minutes.

Mix one egg yolk and 1 tbsp of milk, coat the brioches and sprinkle with the sesame. Bake at 180 degrees, 20 minutes. Enjoy your Sweet brioches.
