Marble Brioche Recipe Simplified


- 250g strong flour

- 3g salt

- 30g caster sugar

- 10g buttermilk powder

- 1 egg

- 150g milk (including eggs)

- 3g active dry yeast

- 50g unsalted butter

- 1/4 sheet of chocolate (marble sheet)


1. Mix the Dry Ingredients: Start by combining the flour, salt, sugar, buttermilk powder, egg, and yeast in your bakery mixer or bread machine. 

2. Add Milk and Butter: Once your dry ingredients are mixed, add the milk and then the butter to the mixer. 

3. Knead: Knead the dough on a bread pan for about 7-8 minutes.

4. Rest: After kneading, remove the dough from the pan, shape it into a ball, and let it rest covered with a damp cloth or plastic wrap to prevent it from drying out. Let it rise until it's about 1.5 times its size.

5. Shape the Dough: Roll out the dough until it's large enough to wrap around the chocolate sheet. Wrap the dough tightly around the chocolate sheet to create the marble effect, making sure to seal the edges firmly.

6. Roll and Fold: Roll the dough out to about 20 x 50 cm, fold it in thirds, stretch it out again, and fold it in thirds. Then, roll it out to about 15 x 25 cm, divide it into 3 pieces, and braid them.

7. Rise Again: Place the braided dough in a bread case and let it rise again until it's about 2 cm below the mold.

8. Bake: Preheat your oven to 200℃. Lower the temperature to 180℃ and bake for about 30 minutes.

9. Cool and Serve: Once baked, carefully remove the dough from the mold and let it cool. Slice it and enjoy your homemade Marble Brioche!
