Best Milk Bread Recipe 

With its rich, fluffy crumb and soft crust, french milk bread is the perfect breakfast delight, for kids and grown-ups alike. Add some cheese for a savory snack. Or fill it with chocolate for a breakfast that will definitely help you get out of bed! And if you are intimidated by yeast, this is the perfect starting recipe. 

french Milk Bread is really easy to make and incredibly therapeutic to shape! Well, unless there are kids nearby who called dibs! I have to warn you though. Once you know how to make pain au lait, you won’t be able to stop making it!


  •  500 g of wheat flour
  •  250 ml of milk
  •  50g butter
  •  50g of sugar
  •  12 g fresh yeast
  •  4g of salt
  •  2 eggs

French Milk Bread Preparation:

 1. In a medium bowl, dissolve the yeast and 10 grams of sugar in warm milk.  Rest in a warm place until it begins to ferment.

 2. In a large bowl, sift the flour and add the yeast mixture, the eggs, the rest of the sugar and the salt, knead until everything is integrated and a homogeneous mixture is obtained.

 3. Add the diced butter at room temperature and knead until smooth and elastic, shape into a ball, cover with a clean kitchen towel, and rise in a warm place for about 90 minutes or until doubled in size.

 4. Divide the dough into pieces of about 50 grams each and give them an oval or "torpedo" shape, distribute on a baking tray and rest covered with a kitchen towel for about 30 minutes.

 5. Varnish the buns with egg glaze (1 yolk + 15 ml of milk) and make 2 or 3 transversal cuts with a sharp knife.

 6. Turn on and pre-heat the oven to 180°C (356°F) for about 10 minutes.

 7. Bake the breads of milk for 20 to 30 minutes until they acquire a dark golden color, remove from the oven and cool on a baking rack.
