Warm milk in a bowl in the microwave for 10 sec. Add yeast and mix with a fork. Add salt and sugar and mix. Wait 3 min.
In your food processor, MAP, or bowl, add the flour. Add the above prepared with yeast. Knead for 1 min (preparation is sandy, normal, just mix the ingredients very well, keep kneading it).
Add the beaten eggs. The flavors and sugar. Knead for 5 minutes (the dough should be sticky at this stage). Remove the bowl of your food processor or MAP. Let stand covered with a clean cloth for 30 min.
Replace the filter in its place. Add the soft butter, diced. Knead for 5 min. Add flour and knead for 3 minutes (the dough should be elastic and even a little sticky). Let rise for 2 hours in the bowl in a warm place covered with a clean cloth.
Remove dough, punch and knead. Form the crown on your baking sheet and place the dough. Create a hole using a glass or parchment paper. Let rise again for 2 h.
Remove the glass. Bake in preheated oven at 300 ° for 12 min. Make a glaze with jam and honey and water. Mix and heat in the microwave for 15 sec. Brush on the brioche.
Sprinkle with grain sugar (and add the candied fruit ... optional). Bake again for about 10 minutes. Sprinkle like me, dark chocolate chips and chopped pecans. Let cool on rack.
