Table of Contents

INGREDIENTS

  • 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 1/4 teaspoons active dry yeast
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup warm milk
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips or chopped chocolate
  • Egg wash (1 egg beaten with 1 tablespoon of water)
  • Powdered sugar, for dusting (optional)

DIRECTIONS

  • In a mixing bowl, combine the all-purpose flour, granulated sugar, active dry yeast, and salt.
  • Add the warm milk and stir to combine.
  • Add the eggs one at a time, mixing well after each addition.
  • Gradually add the softened unsalted butter and knead the dough until it’s smooth and elastic. This can take about 10-15 minutes.
  • Once the dough is ready, cover the bowl with a clean kitchen towel and let it rise in a warm place for about 1-1.5 hours, or until it has doubled in size.
  • After the dough has risen, gently punch it down and divide it into portions, depending on how many chocolate-filled brioches you want to make. Roll each portion into a ball.
  • Flatten each dough ball into a small circle and place a generous amount of chocolate chips or chopped chocolate in the center.
  • Carefully fold the dough over the chocolate, sealing it well to create a ball shape.
  • Place the filled dough balls on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Brush the tops with the egg wash.
  • Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Bake the brioches for about 15-20 minutes, or until they turn golden brown and are cooked through.
  • Remove from the oven and let them cool slightly. If desired, dust the tops with powdered sugar for an extra touch of sweetness.
  • Your homemade Brioche with Chocolate is ready to be enjoyed. The combination of rich, buttery brioche and gooey chocolate is simply irresistible.
