Ingredients

– 4 cups all-purpose flour
– ½ cup warm milk
– 2 ½ teaspoons active dry yeast
– ⅓ cup granulated sugar
– 3 large eggs
– ½ teaspoon salt
– ¾ cup unsalted butter, softened
– Egg wash (1 egg beaten with 1 tablespoon milk) for brushing

Instructions

1. **Activate the Yeast:**
In a small bowl, combine warm milk and active dry yeast. Let it sit for about 5-10 minutes until the mixture becomes frothy.

2. **Mixing the Dough:**
In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour, sugar, and salt. Make a well in the center and add the yeast mixture along with the eggs. Mix until a rough dough forms.

3. **Incorporate Butter:**
Add the softened butter gradually, mixing until it is fully incorporated and the dough becomes smooth and elastic. You might need to knead the dough for about 10-15 minutes.

4. **First Rise:**
Place the dough in a greased bowl, cover it with plastic wrap, and let it rise in a warm place for about 1-2 hours, or until it doubles in size.

5. **Shaping the Rolls:**
After the dough has risen, punch it down gently to release the air bubbles. Divide the dough into equal portions and shape them into rolls. You can make them round or elongated, depending on your preference.

6. **Second Rise:**
Place the shaped rolls on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper, leaving some space between each roll. Cover them loosely with plastic wrap and let them rise for another 1-2 hours until they double in size.

7. **Baking:**
Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Once the rolls have risen, brush them with the egg wash for a shiny finish. Bake them in the preheated oven for 20-25 minutes, or until they turn golden brown.

8. **Enjoy:**
Once baked, let the rolls cool on a wire rack for a few minutes before serving. These milk brioche rolls are best enjoyed warm with a slather of butter or your favorite jam.

**Tips:**
– Ensure the milk is warm, but not too hot, as it can kill the yeast.
– Don’t rush the rising process. Letting the dough rise adequately ensures a light and airy texture.
– Experiment with different shapes and sizes to customize your rolls.

Conclusion

Homemade milk brioche rolls are a delightful addition to any table. With their soft texture and buttery flavor, they are sure to become a family favorite. Whether you’re enjoying them for breakfast, brunch, or as a snack, the satisfaction of baking these rolls from scratch is truly unbeatable. So roll up your sleeves, preheat your oven, and get ready to savor the irresistible taste of freshly baked brioche rolls.
