  1. In a large mixing bowl, combine 1-1/2 cups flour, sugar, yeast, lemon peel and salt. In a saucepan, heat butter and milk to 120 degrees F-130 degrees F. Add to dry ingredients; beat until moistened. Add 4 eggs; beat on medium speed for 2 minutes. Add 1 cup of flour. Beat until smooth. Stir in the remaining flour. Do not knead. Spoon into greased bowl. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour. Stir dough down. Cover and refrigerate overnight.
  2. Punch dough down. Turn onto a lightly floured surface. Cover with a bowl; let rest for 15 minutes. Cut one-sixth from the dough; set aside. Shape remaining dough into 12 balls (about 2-1/2 in); place in well-greased muffin cups. Divide reserved dough into 12 small balls. Make an indentation in the top of each large ball; place a small ball in each indentation. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour.
  3. Beat remaining egg; brush over rolls. Bake at 375 degrees F for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from pan to wire racks to cool.

This recipe came out perfectly the first time I attempted it. I have a bit of a sweet tooth, so I dusted the top with a bit of cinnamon and sugar prior to baking. Delicious!

This is a great recipe and I was suprised and pleased to see how simple it was to make a good brioche right at home. I recommend that when pushing an indention into the center of the main bun, m...

I omitted the lemon peel and let the bread machine do the hard work. I made loaves instead of buns and after a couple of days, I made french toast with brioche slices. So good!

What a delightful change from the normal "eggs and meat" breakfast! I've never really tried brioche, so I'm not sure what it is suppose to taste like, but I am ECSTATIC at how these turned out!...

Mmmmmm... used this recipe to make sticky buns and they were heavenly. So good!! I loved the hint of lemon, it was just the right touch!

Thank you for this recipe! It truly made me feel like a baking genius! I've made this a few times already and every time they come out great. I was nervous making them the first time since I was...

I may have done something wrong, although I tried to follow the recipe exactly as written, but the bread came out very dense. I am used to a lighter brioche. I'll continue to look for a recipe t...
