  • Step 1

    In a stand mixer, combine the flour, yeast, sugar, salt, milk and 3 eggs. Knead on a low speed until a smooth dough forms. Turn up the speed to medium and mix for 8-10 minutes

  • Step 2

    Gradually add the softened butter on a medium speed, a few cubes at a time until all the butter is mixed in, this may take 5 minutes. Scrap down the sides of bowl to ensure all the butter is incorporated. The dough will be very soft

  • Step 3

    Cover bowl and leave in fridge overnight or for 8-10 hours until it’s firm

  • Step 4

    Divide dough into 7 even pieces. Roll each piece into a ball. (The dough is sticky, and some extra flour may help roll out balls)

  • Step 5

    Grease Cook & Crisp basket. Cut baking parchment in a circle to fit and line bottom of Cook & Crisp basket. Arrange 6 buns around the sides of Cook & Crisp basket and 1 in middle. Add 250ml water to the pot. Place in pot. Close lid. Move slider to the AIR FRY/COOKER position

  • Step 6

    Select PROVE, set temp to 35°C and set time to 1 hour 40 mins. Press START/STOP to begin the rise. After 1 hour 40 minutes, check the dough to make sure it has doubled in size. Brush top of brioche with egg wash. Close the lid and move slider to the COMBI-STEAM position

  • Step 7

    Select STEAM BREAD, set temperature to 160°C and set time to 12 minutes. Select START/STOP to begin cooking (the display will show PRE for approximately 15 minutes as it steams, then the timer will start counting down)

  • Step 8

    When cooking is complete, the surface of the bread will be crusty and brown. Carefully remove the Cook & Crisp basket from the pot. Allow the bread to cool for about 30 minutes before slicing
