Directions: In a small bowl, add the milk, and warm it. 45 seconds in the microwave and stirred is what I did or you can warm it on the stove. Then add the yeast, and 1 Tbsp sugar. Stir and then let sit for 5 minutes. You will see the mixture become frothy, this means it is ready. In the meantime, using a stand mixer, add your flour, 1/4 cup sugar, and salt. Mix with a spatula until thoroughly mixed. Pour the frothy yeast mixture and eggs in with the flour mixture. Using your hook attachment, beat on slow for a few minutes then beat on fast. Once you no longer see loose flour, add your butter. Continue to beat on dough for 5 minutes. Put the dough into a oiled bowl as it will be very sticky. Cover bowl with plastic wrap and then towel. Let rise for an hour.

Form dough into a log and cut into 5 equal sections. Roll into a ball and let rise again for another 30 minutes with a towel covering them. After the 30 minutes, preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Lightly dust your working surface with some flour. Divide each ball into three sections and roll into a 1/4' pencil. Check out the video below how to braid your brioche dough.

Place your Brioche braid buns on a baking sheet and back for 25-30 minutes or until a perfect golden brown.
