Thank you to reader Carissa for sending in a picture of her Brioche buns, she loves these so much and wanted to share the recipe with us.  This is what I love, recipes that people have tried and recommended, you know it’s got to be good!  If you have a favourite recipe you would love to share please email it through along with a photo.


Carissa made these buns in her Thermomix, but I have also shared a link to a regular recipe below.  She made these as a side for dinner, but they would also be great as rolls for the kids lunch boxes and make slightly larger rolls for hamburgers.


Do you make your own buns, what is your favourite recipe?

I am a little bit addicted to making my own bread at the moment, will be giving these a try very soon!

Delicious – made them last night. They have the wow factor in terms of presentation. I think probably best served and eaten after baked rather than keeping them.

I agree, Carol. They are so delicious!

Is the milk meant to be in grams? What is this is mls? Thanks

Katrina - The Organised Housewife February 16, 2015 - 9:06 AM

Hi Simone, it’s in grams because it is a thermomix recipe. I’m not 100% sure what that converts to in ml’s

Could you please clarify whether this temperature is for fan forced or conventional ovens? Also, does this apply to all other recipes on your site?

Thanks in advance!

Hi Petina, sorry it’s for a fan forced oven.
