75 g caster sugar
3 egg yolks (+ 1 for gilding)
125 g of soft DEMI-SEL butter cut into pieces
25 g of baker's yeast
200 g of milkp> 1 tablespoon orange blossom
Put in the bowl, milk and yeast. Program 10 min/37 ° C/speed 2.
At the ring, add the flour, 1 pinch of salt, the sugar, the 3 egg yolks 5 min/.
A ringing, add soft butter and orange blossom 10 min/.
At the ring, put a cloth on the bowl, and let the dough rise for at least 1 hour. When the dough is well raised, prepare the oven plate, putting a parchment paper on it.
Crush the dough on the work surface, with the hand, to expel all the gas. Put it into a ball, which is divided into 3 dough pieces. Shape 3 sausages and braid. Put on the parchment paper. Let rise again for about 1 hour, covering with the same cloth. (it must double in size)
Preheat the oven to 180 ° (thermostat 6). In a bowl, beat the egg with a little water and brush the bun. Sprinkle with granulated sugar
Bake for 20 minutes. Halfway through cooking, lower the oven to 150 ° C,
Let the brioche cool on a rack before eating.
the long kneading (15 minutes in total) makes the brioche airy and it stays in a towel several days without moving. The only problem is that it is so good that it does not last very long!
