IMG_9507Briochettes are sweet small Brioches with (butter, eggs, and milk), perfect for a breakfast or for tea time.

Serves 8/10


  • 500g of all purpose flour/plain flour
  • A pinch of salt
  • 80g of caster sugar
  • 15g of fresh yeast
  • 3 big eggs
  • 250g of lukewarm milk (more of less depending of the quality of your flour)
  • 100g of butter cut in cubes
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla sugar or zest of orange or lemon
  • 1 egg yolk for the brush
  • Sesame seeds for decoration or pearl sugar


  1. In a stand mixer add the flour, the sugar in one side and the salt in the other side.
  2. Crumble the fresh yeast.
  3. Start to mix (with a dough hook at a low speed).
  4. Add the eggs and mix.
  5. Pour the milk and finally the butter.
  6. Mix on high speed until the dough becomes elastic and detaches from the bowl.
  7. Cover the bowl with a kitchen cloth and let the dough rise for 1 hour or maybe more depending of the temperature of the room.
  8. Dust a clean surface and transfer the dough, punch it down gently to release the air.
  9. Form dough balls of 100g each (you should obtain 9 dough balls).
  10. Flour small briochettes pan (you can use a muffin or cupcake pan).
  11. Add each ball inside each pan.
  12. Brush each briochettes with the egg yolk and sprinkle with sesame seeds the top.
  13. Cover with clean kitchen towel and let rise in a warm place for 1 hour.
  14. Preheat the oven to 170C degrees.
  15. Bake for 30/35 minutes until the briochettes turn golden/brown.
  16. Allow cooling for 30 minutes.

The briochettes are soft and sweet. Excellent with a tea, I opted here for a black cherries jam.

    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 !!

    1. 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 🙂
