Melt the butter with the sugar and milk in a saucepan and the yeast in lukewarm water. Put the flour in the mixer with the eggs, the spices, aromatics and the orange zest. Next add the yeast mixture into the flour and slowly pour the mixture with butter, knead around 15 minutes. Let the dough rise about an hour.

When it’s ready try to shape the dough in an oblong sheet, give the form you like and put them aside to rest and inflate. Beat some eggs smearing on the top of each brioche. Bake in preheated traditional oven. In case you don’t have a traditional oven you can try to use your oven in the kitchen at 180 degrees about 15-20 mins.
