  1. Mix the flour, 1 tsp salt, caster sugar, yeast, milk and eggs together in a mixer using the dough attachment for 5 mins until the dough is smooth. Add the butter and mix for a further 4 mins on medium speed. Scrape the dough bowl and mix again for 1 min.

Chill in the fridge for 30 mins, then brush again with beaten egg and chill for a further 30 mins. Leave to rise for 1 hr at room temperature. Heat oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6, then bake for 22 mins. Serve warm.

This is a silly question but are the nutritional contents (calories, fat, carbs etc) on the BBC good food recipes per portion or for the whole recipes?

The recipe ingredients seemed all wrong, after I added the eggs they wouldn't mix an I got saturated with them! I.gave up an bought shortcrust pastry an used that instead, serving it tomorrow so dunno how it will turn out.

Not tried this recipe but how can it say 30 mins prep time when the first step is to chill the dough for at least 6 hours?

I made this for the second time, last time I stuck to the 22 minutes cooking time and it was under cooked this time I left in for about 10 longer. This is absolutely delicious !! I made sure I took a slice before I handed it out and it went really fast, it is really easy to make it just takes a bit of time Delicious !!

I made this last year at Christmas when I had a group of people over for dinner. I left to cool slightly before placing it on the table on a nice chopping board. Everyone loved it and having the Brie ooze out made it look so attractive and tasty, every tiny bit was eaten. i will be making this againt his year as I have had requests from my friends and family. :)

have read all comments very helpful as I wanted to make for lunch tomorrow and had a 500 brie so was going to double brioche mix now realize wont need to also read on another site that freezing the brie and using it frozen will stop it ozing too much so am going to try that
