  2. Start to mix (with a dough hook at a low speed).
  3. Add the egg and the sugar.
  4. Pour the milk and finally the soft butter.
  5. Mix on high speed until the dough becomes elastic.
  6. Cover the bowl with a kitchen cloth and let the dough rise for 1 hour.
  7. Dust a clean surface and transfer the dough, punch it down gently to release the air.

    Oh Linda! your small brioche are really really cute and I’m sure they were amazing… a great way to start your day! Did you use a regular muffin pan? or you have a specific pan for those amazing small breads?

      Thank you Margherita 🙂 They were perfect this morning with my breakfast, still moist. For this recipe I used individual mini loaf pan 🙂 You can use any mini pan (kouglof, charlotte…) Bonne nuit!

      Wa Alaykum Asalam, Asma 🙂 Shukran for your kind words. The recipe is easy to make and the little Briochettes are tasty (you can add more or less sugar into the dough if you want). Do let me know if you try them. Have a great weekend!

    Il doit y avoir bien 20 ans que je n’ai fait de brioche,la mona et kaak oui; j’en faisais de grosses dans des moules à kouglof .et pourtant je devrais en préparer plus souvent car ce n’est pas trop sucré et la quantité de beurre est moindre .
    Les tiennes sont superbes,bien rondouillettes !!! Ya3tik essaha et à Safia aussi car j’ai cru comprendre qu’elle en est l’auteur . Donc boussa à toutes les deux !!

      Mima, je suis vraiment une accro de la 3djina 🙂 Je suis d’accord avec toi pour la quantite de sucre, je prefere en mettre le moins possible ca te donne le choix de rajouter de la confiture par dessus…Merci a Safia, c’est vraiment une experte pour tout ce qui est petrissage. Boussette kabirettes 🙂
