Fresh Brioche Buns

Nothing beats the scent of  fresh bread filling up your home, especially when it’s homemade brioche buns topped with sesame seeds!


  • Combine the warm water, warm milk, sugar and yeast in a mixing bowl and leave to sit until the yeast begins to activate.

  • In a separate bowl, rub the flour, salt and butter together until a breadcrumb texture forms. Create a well in the centre of the bowl and pour in the yeast mixture a long with two eggs.

  • Combine the mixture using your hands to form a sticky dough, dust a clean work surface with flour and knead the sticky dough for 10 minutes.

  • Oil a mixing bowl, place the dough ball inside, cover with cling film and leave to rise until it doubles in size. This will take a couple of hours.

  • When the dough is ready, knock the air out of the dough and knead for 3 minutes. If too sticky, add a small amount of flour to the dough.

  • Split the dough in to 12 pieces, roll into balls and place on to a baking tray. Cover with oiled clingfilm and leave to rise until they've double in size.

  • When your dough is ready to cook, preheat the oven to 200C or 180C for fan assisted ovens. Tip some water in to a shallow baking tray and place in the bottom of the oven.

  • Beat one egg inside a jug, brush on top of the dough balls, sprinkle with sesame seeds and place in the oven for 20 minutes or until golden brown.
