Simple sweet Brioche recipe – My baking recipe

Today I’m sharing with you my favorite recipe for a sweet yeast loaf. I grew up in Düsseldorf and there from a young age the sweet bread belonged to a perfect morning simply, preferably to my home-cooked strawberry jam.

However, when I moved away from Düsseldorf and tried rather tasteless white breads, I started to bake my own sweet yeast bread. Even though I had respect for yeast in the beginning, I have now found an easy recipe that I now like to bake again and again.

You don’t need any extraordinary ingredients and you don’t need much time to prepare it. That’s why the Brioche is so popular when you realize in the early evening that you need another loaf for the next day.

A sweet Brioche is always part of our table at all big family gatherings and family breakfasts. I have other recipes of delicious Hefestuten that I am happy to show you as well, however this Hefestuten recipe is one of my favorites.

German Bread is popular all over the world and I too miss the sweet buttery brioche when I haven’t eaten it in a long time. I’ll show you how to easily make this delicious bread yourself and how quickly you can have the bread dough ready.

Of course, I prefer to eat the Brioche freshly baked, because then it is still really fluffy and soft. On top of it I sometimes spread just a little butter or Nutella and jam. At lunchtime, I then prefer a mild cheese or cream cheese as a spread and, of course, boiled eggs always fit perfectly – but for that there is also the special “Easter bread recipe“.

If you want to bake the sweet bread the night before so you don’t have to get up extra early on Sunday, it’s a good idea to bake the fluffy bread before dinner and then let it cool for a few hours. Then wrap it in aluminum foil and the bread will still be absolutely fresh for breakfast, as if it just came out of the oven.

You can also easily freeze the Brioche if you want it to stay fresh longer. I like to bake this recipe over and over again, and I also like it when the bread gets a little firmer after a while, since you can then easily cut the Brioche into thinner slices.

You can add 150g of raisins to the dough recipe if you wish, but then you should reduce the sugar to only 100g. Instead of milk you can use whipped cream, instead of margarine you can use butter.

If you want to experience a very special Brioche, you should definitely try the Brioche as Easter bread. A little sweeter – but perfect for Easter with guests.

Have fun trying it out!
