Soft brioche recipe – buttered brioche

Brioche with butter is always particularly deliciously buttery and full of flavor. Even in the past, there were always two versions in the bakery, brioche with butter or brioche with margarine. Brioche with butter was always simply softer and even tastier.

However, buttered brioche quickly has a few more calories than normal brioche. Perhaps it’s better not to eat brioche at all if you’re worried about it. Today, as in the past, enjoyment comes first when it comes to brioche and the best brioche recipe.

The origins of brioche go back to 15th century France. The name “brioche” possibly comes from the Old French word “brier”, which means “to knead”. This connection to kneading suggests that brioche bread has always been important in the development of French baking.

Originally, brioche was a luxury item that was often served at royal banquets and festive occasions. Its rich dough, enriched with eggs and butter, made it a symbol of wealth and indulgence. Over time, however, brioche also found its way into everyday cooking and became a popular breakfast bread as brioche bread.

Fluffy, soft brioche from France – simply bake your own brioche…

Soft white bread from France – the best brioche recipe

Brioche is known for its airy crumb and buttery taste, which is created by adding fine flour, fresh eggs and creamy butter. This gives the bread a delicate sweetness and a rich, creamy note that is simply incomparably delicious.

We love our simple sweet brioche, but brioche is another level of sweet soft bread. You can literally squeeze it and it returns to its shape afterwards without being squished. I always found soft bread a bit scary and artificial until I baked it myself.

Today it’s almost routine for us to make a delicious homemade brioche recipe. As the name suggests, it’s all about perfect kneading and you get that by forming balls. Of course, you can also bake the bread as brioche bread without forming balls. However, kneading the bread into balls makes it particularly soft. The double resting time is also important for the bread.

Nevertheless, you can bake a really tasty brioche recipe yourself with just a few simple steps and hardly any special ingredients. The recipe also works well with margarine instead of butter, although this changes the structure and flavor slightly.
