Yesterday I wondered if there is something better than butter, although I am not a strong supporter of butter for cooking cakes and other dishes. Well, every time you have tasted something delicious and ask yourself what's inside, there's only one correct answer: the butter.

This Pan brioche is a tasty recipe, that has a hefty dose of fat and sugar.

Total Time: 2 hr

Preparation: 25 minute

Yield: 6 servings

Let's see the ingredients we need:

  • 1 (25 ounce) package instant yeast
  • 600 grams all-purpose flour (25 tablespoons)
  • 250 grams of milk (24 tablespoons)
  • 80 grams of shelled nuts
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 50 grams of butter
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 1 egg
  • a pinch of pepper and salt


  • Let's start warming milk and melt the butter in a pot over medium-low heat. Add sugar, an instant yeast and stir it until it has melted. Mix flour in a pot with the eggs yolks and one egg. At the end put a pinch of pepper and salt.
  • At this point, the mixture is perfect and we can add the other ingredients. (If the mixture is stiff add some tablespoons of milk).
  • In the meantime cut nuts into small pieces and put them in the dough.The dough is ready, so place it in a bowl, cover it with a damp towel and let it rise in a warm place at 28 degrees for 30 minutes.
  • Grease with butter a plumcake ( 10 cm x 26 cm x 8 cm). Transfer the dough into the plumcake and shape it in an elongated form. Let it rise with the same damp towel, until it doubles in volume ( for about another hour).
  • Then make some cuts on the dough's surface with a knife and bake it at 280 degrees F in oven for about 35-40 minutes, depending on the type of oven.
  • The pan brioche nuts can be served as anappetizer with mascarpone ( or cheese like ‘stracchino’) or for breakfast with jam and butter ( the sweet butter that makes bad thoughts disappear).

At the end of this process, you will have a delicious meal that can be enjoyed for lunch or dinner.

If you follow the steps listed above, then you will have no problem obtaining an awesome meal.
