Treat yourself to these soft, buttery milk brioche rolls that are perfect for breakfast or a delightful snack. This recipe yields fluffy rolls with a hint of sweetness, ideal for spreading with jam or enjoying plain with a cup of coffee.


  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 1/4 teaspoons active dry yeast
  • 4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened


  1. Warm the milk in a small saucepan until it reaches about 110°F (43°C). Remove from heat and stir in the granulated sugar until dissolved. Sprinkle the active dry yeast over the milk mixture and let it sit for about 5 minutes, until foamy.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour and salt. Make a well in the center and pour in the yeast mixture. Add the eggs and softened butter.
  3. Using a wooden spoon or a dough hook attachment on a stand mixer, mix the ingredients until a shaggy dough forms.
  4. Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface and knead for about 8-10 minutes, until smooth and elastic. Alternatively, you can knead the dough in a stand mixer fitted with a dough hook for about 5-7 minutes on medium speed.
  5. Place the dough in a greased bowl, cover with a clean kitchen towel or plastic wrap, and let it rise in a warm, draft-free place for about 1 to 1 1/2 hours, or until doubled in size.
  6. Once the dough has risen, punch it down to release the air bubbles. Divide the dough into 12 equal portions and shape each portion into a ball. Place the dough balls on a parchment-lined baking sheet, spaced a few inches apart.
  7. Cover the dough balls loosely with plastic wrap or a clean kitchen towel and let them rise for an additional 30-45 minutes, until puffy.
  8. Preheat the oven to 375°F (190°C). Once the rolls have risen, remove the plastic wrap or towel and bake them in the preheated oven for 15-18 minutes, or until golden brown on top and cooked through.
  9. Remove the rolls from the oven and let them cool slightly on the baking sheet before serving. Enjoy warm or at room temperature. These rolls are best enjoyed the day they are made, but they can be stored in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 2 days.
