Pumpkin Shaped Mini-Brioches

Updated: Oct 19, 2021

This mini-brioches are perfect for autumn season as they look like small pumpkins. You can spread them with butter, jam or chocolate creme, and enjoy them with a large mug of hot chocolate. Delicious!

Preparation Time: 20 mins

Cooking Time: 20-25 mins

Total Time: 40-45 mins

Portions: 18-20 pumpkins



1 kg flour

50 g fresh yeast

400 ml milk (warm)

150 g sugar

3 eggs

150 g butter

125 ml crème fraiche



1. Put the flour in a large bowl and make a well in the centre in which you put half of the milk and the fresh yeast. Let sit for 10 minutes.

2. Melt the butter and let cool slightly.

3. Add the rest of the milk, the sugar, the eggs, crème fraiche and butter to the flour and knead into a soft dough for 10 minutes. Cover and let rise for 1 hour.

4. Preheat the oven to 190°C.

5. Divide the dough into pieces of 100 g and form small dough balls (use enough flour to do this). Take an ovenproof cord and cover it in flour (this prevents it from sticking to the dough after baking). Tie the cord around the dough pieces 4 times as you would do with gift cord around a gift. Make a knot and cut off the remaining cord.

6. Bake the pumpkin brioches for 20-25 minutes. When the pumpkin brioches are baked, cut the string, and detach it from the pumpkin brioches.
