I made a great loaf of bread machine brioche bread. My first time and boy, was the French toast I made from it out of this world!
Prep Time 5minutes

Total Time 2hours55minutes
1/4cup lukewarm waterplus 2 tablespoons
2eggs plus 1 egg yolk, lightly whisked
1 3/4cupsbread flourplus 2 tablespoons
1 3/4teaspoonsactive dry yeast
8tablespoonsunsalted buttercut into tablespoon-sized pats, softened
Add all ingredients except for the softened butter to the bread machine in the order specified by your bread machine maker. I have listed the ingredients in the order for my older model Regal bread maker.
Set your bread machine to 'sweet' or 'regular' if yours doesn't have a 'sweet' setting and begin processing.
minutes before the second kneed cycle is completed start adding the butter, 1 tablespoon at a time, 1 minute between adding each one. NOTE: My bread machine book has a chart showing the various cycle times. For mine, making sweet bread, the 2nd kneed begins after 15 minutes and last 20 minuets. So, I began adding the butter 27 minutes (15 minutes + 20 minutes - 8 minutes) after starting the bread.
Let machine finish and then open the top. Let the bread cool 20 minutes before removing to slice.
Follow the measurement amounts exactly to get the proper texture.
