Brioche Donuts


Brioche donuts are a type of doughnut that are made with brioche dough, which is a rich, buttery dough that is traditionally used in French pastries. The dough is typically sweetened with sugar and flavored with eggs, milk, and vanilla, and is then shaped into donut forms and deep-fried. The result is a doughnut that is soft, fluffy, and slightly sweet with a rich buttery flavor. They can be coated with sugar, glaze or any other toppings. Some variations include filling with cream, jelly or chocolate.

recipe for making homemade brioche doughnuts:


1 cup (240 ml) warm milk

2 1/4 tsp (7 g) active dry yeast

3 eggs

1/2 cup (100 g) sugar

1 tsp (5 g) salt

4 1/2 cups (600 g) all-purpose flour

1/2 cup (115 g) butter, at room temperature

Vegetable oil, for frying


In a large bowl, combine the warm milk and yeast. Let sit for about 5 minutes, or until the mixture becomes foamy.

Add the eggs, sugar, and salt to the bowl, and whisk until well combined.

Slowly add the flour to the bowl, stirring until a dough forms.

Knead the dough on a floured surface for about 10 minutes, or until it becomes smooth and elastic.

Place the dough in a greased bowl, cover, and let it rise in a warm place for about 1 hour, or until it has doubled in size.

Punch down the dough, and roll it out on a floured surface to a thickness of about 1/2 inch (1 cm).

Cut the dough into donut shapes using a doughnut cutter or a round cookie cutter and a smaller round cutter.

Place the doughnuts on a baking sheet, cover, and let them rise again for about 30 minutes.

Heat the oil in a deep fryer or a large pot to 350°F (175°C).

Carefully place the doughnuts in the hot oil and fry for about 2-3 minutes on each side, or until they are golden brown.

Remove the doughnuts from the oil and drain on paper towels.

Dust the donuts with powdered sugar or any toppings of your choice.

Enjoy your homemade brioche doughnuts!
