  • Summary

    The confection Marie Antoinette allegedly referred to in the famous line "Let them eat cake," or "Qu'ils mangent de la brioche," was probably more similar to an enriched bread than to the light, flaky brioche rolls we enjoy today.

    Ingredients

    • 5 tablespoons lukewarm milk (100 to 115 degrees), plus 1 tablespoon milk
    • 1/2 ounce fresh yeast
    • 1 pound 2 ounces all-purpose flour, plus more for forming dough
    • 1 tablespoon coarse salt
    • 6 large eggs plus 1 large egg yolk
    • 1 1/2 cups (3 sticks) unsalted butter, slightly softened, plus more for molds
    • 1/4 cup superfine sugar
    • Nonstick cooking spray
    • 1 tablespoon milk
