I had a taste for brioche bread, but wanted to make a version that had no eggs. Egg prices are through the roof at the moment, so developing an egg free bread was just what I wanted.
 
It has a light and delicious sweet flavor and is SO good on a breakfast sandwich. This egg free brioche is one of my favorite bread recipes so far, it has a hint of sweetness and a really fantastic flavor.

Do I Need a Stand Mixer for Brioche Bread?

You can make this egg free brioche in a bowl and mix/knead by hand, but I would recommend using a really good stand mixer if you have one! I find that the stand mixer does absolute wonders for kneading breads – and this brioche is no exception!  It’s light, fluffy, and airy thanks to the mixer consistently folding and kneading the dough.

I have a classic stand mixer which was an investment worth every penny for me. I still mix some easy dessert recipes by hand, but for any type of bread I always bring out the mixer.

I use my stand mixer for this bread, as well as some of my favorites: easy wheat sandwich bread, my herb focaccia, and even my chia seed banana bread.

What’s In This Eggless Brioche Bread Recipe?

Be sure to visit the recipe card below for full ingredient amounts and recipe instructions!

  • All Purpose Flour: I normally use all purpose flour for all my baking recipes, I love the consistency and texture of the crumb this flour produces. If you are gluten free, then a gluten free flour would be a nice substitute in this dish.
  • Granulated Sugar
  • Instant Yeast: great for both overnight breads and this easy quick brioche bread recipe too!
  • Salt
  • Milk – I used whole milk, but you can use a plant-based version to make this vegan.
  • Butter – I like to use unsalted butter to reduce the amount of sodium in my cooking.
  • Water

How To Make Brioche Without Eggs

This may look like a complicated recipe because it has a lot of steps, but believe me this is a simple and easy bread to bake.
 
  1. In a large mixing bowl or stand mixer, add the flour, sugar, instant yeast, and salt. Mix well to combine.
  2. Add the melted butter and milk to the flour. Pour the vanilla extract over the mixture. If mixing by hand, mix 8-10 minutes until dough is well combined. Dough should be sticky and thick. If your dough is sticking to the sides of the bowl, add the remaining 1/2 cup flour.
  3. Transfer dough to a large bowl (I like to use a batter bowl) and allow the brioche to rise in a warm place for 1-2 hours or until doubled in size.
  4. Grease a 8×4 loaf pan. Turn dough out onto a well-floured work surface.
  5. Divide dough into 4 equal parts. Roll the rough out to about 4 inches wide and 12 inches long. Take one end of the long side of the dough, and begin to tightly roll inwards, like a cinnamon roll. Tuck the edges of the dough under so it is roughly the same size as the loaf pan. Place each 1/4 of the rolled dough in the loaf pan to rest – so there are 4 sections of dough in the pan.  Cover, and allow dough to rise in the loaf pans in a warm place for 1 hour or until doubled in size.
  6. Preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit. Brush the tops of the dough with melted butter and place in oven to bake for 22 to 28 minutes. Top should be brown.
  7. Allow the brioche to cool on a rack for at least 45 minutes before slicing.

 

Dietary Modifications

  • To make this brioche vegan & dairy free: substitute the butter and milk for plant based varieties. I’ve made brioche with almond milk before and it tastes great!
