Brioche is a delicate and lightly sweet bread that can be used in a variety of recipes. In this one, brioche is the base for a sweet and delicious breakfast loaf. A mixture of butter and sugar is spread on the bread before being sprinkled with walnuts and braided into a beautiful ring. You can make the dough ahead of time and assemble it in the morning to save on time, or make it all in the morning and enjoy as a late breakfast with a nice big cup of coffee.


  • 350 grams flour
  • 130 milk (mg of warm)
  • 1 egg
  • 50 grams butter (cut into pieces)
  • 30 grams sugar
  • 1 cup coffee (powdered yeast)
  • 1 cup salt (teaspoon)
  • 30 grams butter (melted)
  • 30 grams muscovado sugar
  • 100 grams chopped walnuts (coarsely)
  • 3 cups soup (caster sugar, mixed with 3 Tablespoons water)


  1. If you have a breadmaker, first put the liquid ingredients in the bread pan, then add the dry ingredients, and run the "dough cycle" program.
  2. If you don't have a bread machine, mix the sugar in a bowl with the flour and the salt. Make a hole at the center and pour in the milk, egg and yeast. First, knead with your fingertips to incorporate all the ingredients, and then knead the dough for a few minutes. The dough is difficult to work with at first. Add the softerned pieces of butter gradually and knead for about 10 minutes.
  3. Let the dough rest, covered with a towel for 1 hour in a warm, draft-free place.
  4. Roll out the dough into a rectangle and baste this rectangle with the mixture of melted butter-muscovado sugar.
  5. Sprinkle evenly with chopped nuts then roll the dough into a log.
  6. Cut this coil in half lengthwise and twist the two strands together, while trying to keep the nuts face up.
  7. Form a ring with this twist and let the dough rise for another 30 minutes.
  8. Preheat oven at 425 degrees Fahrenheit after 15 minutes.
  9. Bake for about 20 to 30 minutes.
  10. When the brioche is cooked and while it is still hot, brush it with the melted sugar.

This is great to make for overnight guests or for a brunch. It takes a little practice to make the ring look pretty, but it's not too hard. I served this with lots of fruit and a pan of eggs and everyone loved it.
