- 60 milliliters milk (warmed)
- 4 eggs (lightly beaten)
- 450 grams bread flour
- 50 grams sugar
- active dry yeast (15. gr. instant)
- 225 grams butter (cubed and room temperature)
- 200 grams poppy seeds
- 300 milliliters milk
- 50 grams nuts (choice)
- 40 grams butter
- 40 grams granulated sugar
- 1 vanilla extract (splash)
- 80 grams sugar
- 1 teaspoon almond extract
- The day before, prepare the dough. In a stand mixture, add the dough attachment and the ingredients in this order: milk, eggs, flour, sugar, yeast, and a pinch of salt.
- When the dough starts to come together, start adding the cubes of butter 1 by 1, waiting until each is incorporated before adding the next. In total, knead 15 minutes.
- Transfer the dough to a lightly oiled bowl, cover with plastic wrap, and refrigerate 8 to 24 hours.
- The day before, also start making the filling. On low heat, simmer the poppy seeds in the milk for a few minutes. Let cool and refrigerate.
- The next day, remove the seeds from the milk. Blend together the nuts, poppy seeds, butter, granulated sugar, vanilla extract, sugar, and almond extract. Set aside.
- Transfer the dough onto a lightly floured surface and knead a bit until it forms a ball. Cut the ball into 4 sections.
- Roll out each piece of dough into a rectangular shape. Smear on the filling, leaving a border on all sides. Roll the dough up, starting on the long side.
- Cut each roll into triangle shapes by cutting on the diagonal.
- Preheat the oven to 180 degrees Celsius.
- Put the dough onto baking trays, cover with a moist towel, and let it rise for 1 hour.
- Baste the tops of each brioche with the milk and bake 15 to 20 minutes until golden.
