I always use the dough cycle then separate the dough into three parts and braid it. Then I let it rise for an hour and bake it for 20 minutes at 350 degrees. The dough is flaky and soft and buttery, it's just as amazing as regular brioche, but with less butter and eggs. I LOVE this recipe! So easy, and absolutely amazing.

I've never been to France, and as far as I know, there isn't even supposed to be a decent French bakery where I live. So, I have NO idea what brioche is supposed to taste like and can't base my review on that. What I can say is that this recipe makes a DELICIOUS loaf of bread! Flavorful, moist and flaky with a delicate crust- really good stuff that we can't stop eating, thanks Mercy!

One of the best I've made yet! Great crust, the bottom is very melt-in-your-mouth. Inside is super soft. Very good for sandwiches. Didn't have the bread machine yeast but I used 2 1/4 tsp of regular active dry yeast and it rose perfectly. Put it in my Sunbeam's Sweet cycle and it turned out delicious. Thanks for sharing!

I wsa quite surpised to find that there were very few brioche recipes for breadmakers on this site. It doesn't matter though as this one works perfectly!!!I found it a bit different to the ones we buy at the bakers here(in France), as they are a bit lighter, but it's lovely! I'll definitely be making this recipe again.

This is the first time I have ever made any kind of brioche and I picked this one because of the time factor. It is a great one. Just be wary of the amount of yeast. Don't be generous otherwise you will end up cleaning the top of your breadmaker! Definitely worth trying!

I just bought a bread maker and picked this as my first recipe. DELICIOUS!! I'm so happy with my purchase now that I know I can easily bake super yummy bread! I followed the simple instructions exactly and baked it as a sweet bread with a light crust. This brioche is flaky, tender, and buttery. I can't wait to make french toast tomorrow morning! Thanks so much for sharing your recipe!

I used the dough setting and then braided the bread and let rise 1 hour. And baked it at 350F for 23 minutes. The taste is so good. And the bread is moist and airy. Thanks Mercy :) Great bread. Made for Name that ingredient tag game

I tried this recipe on sweet and then tried it on #1 normal white. I also great the inside of the pan with a table spoon of I can't believe its not butter. I also substituted 1 of the tablespoons of sugar with a table spoon of cinnamon sugar. I also topped the top of the loaf when it finished with a tablespoon of butter as it cooled on the rack.

I'm a novice breadmaker with a new Zojirushi. ..tried this exactly as written, as one of my first creations, and it turned out perfect!!! Such a delicate flavor and texture. . felt very French eating this!
We made it into French Toast, which of course was fabulous. Thanks!
