Butterfly Pea Brioche Bread


  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 1/2 tsp active dry yeast
  • 2 TBS sugar
  • 2 cups bread flour
  • 3 TBS sweetened condensed coconut milk
  • 3 TBS butter, cut into pieces
  • 1 tsp butterfly pea powder


  1. Heat milk for 30 seconds in the microwave.
  2. Add the yeast & sugar and lightly whisk until mixed. Let sit for 5 minutes.
  3. Pour yeast mixture in a mixer with the dough hook on.
  4. Add in the bread flour & condensed coconut milk. Mix on low medium for 3-4 minutes.
  5. Add butter pieces one at a time. Stop to scrape sides, if necessary. Continue slowly adding butter until all pieces are incorporated.
  6. Remove half the dough.
  7. Add 1 tsp butterfly pea powder to the remaining dough and mix for 2-3 minutes until the powder is incorporated.
  8. Knead both doughs separately and form into a ball. The dough with butterfly pea powder may require more kneading to further incorporate the colored powder.
  9. Cover both dough balls with a clean towel. Let rise for 1 hour, until doubled in size.
  10. Grease a medium bread pan and set aside.
  11. Form into a ball again & let sit for 5 minutes. Then rollout each ball into a thin rectangle. Make sure to check the length of your bread pan.
  12. Place the blue dough on top of the other dough and roll lengthwise. You want a fairly tight roll. Place in your prepared pan and cover with a dry towel. Let rise for 1 hour, until doubled in size.
  13. Heat oven to 350 degrees. Bake bread for 25-30 minutes. Let cool & enjoy!
