  • To make brioche:

    1. Walk 1Put the yeast in a bowl. Lightly grease a separate bowl. Melt the butter in a small saucepan over low heat. Add oil, milk and egg. Cook, stirring frequently, until an instant-read thermometer reads 110°F. Pour over yeast and let stand until yeast bubbles, 8 to 10 minutes.
    2. Walk 2Whisk together the flour, sugar, salt and malted milk powder in a bowl. Add the dry ingredients to the butter mixture. Beat with an electric mixer fitted with a dough hook over low heat until the ingredients are combined. Increase speed to high and beat until dough is shiny and elastic and pulls away from sides of bowl, 9 to 11 minutes. Transfer to a prepared bowl and cover with plastic wrap. Refrigerate, 1 hour. While the batter is resting, prepare the coffee butter, spiced sugar, and pumpkin glaze if you haven’t already.
    3. Walk 3Turn the dough out onto a floured work surface. Roll into a 1/2 inch thick 8 x 16 inch rectangle. (Shape doesn’t have to be perfect.) Spread 1/2 cup coffee butter over dough all the way to edges. Sprinkle 1 cup spiced sugar evenly over the dough. Roll the dough into a log, starting at the short end.
    4. Walk 4Use a knife to cut the log into 1/2-inch-thick slices; cut the slices into 1/2 inch pieces. Divide 1/2 of the batter between two 8-inch cast iron skillets. Top with remaining coffee butter and spiced sugar, spreading evenly. Top with remaining pieces of dough, spreading evenly. Cover with plastic wrap and let rest, at room temperature, until the dough rises slightly, about 45 minutes.
    5. Walk 5Preheat the oven to 350°F. Place pans on a rimmed baking sheet and bake until golden brown, 25 to 30 minutes. Drizzle with pumpkin spice glaze. Serve hot.
