TWD: Brioche Plum Tart
It's Tuesday again and you know what that means. A whole mess of bakers will be showing off another recipe from Dorie Greenspan's book, "Baking, From my Home to Yours" today.
Denise of Chez Us picked Brioche Plum Tart for this week's Tuesday's with Dorie recipe. Thanks, Denise!
This was a fairly simple treat. A brioche base is pressed into a tart pan and topped with lightly sweetened fruit. We were supposed to use plum slices, but I opted to use a combination of peach and plum.
I thought this recipe had potential, but I have to admit that I didn't exactly love it as-is. I thought the bread layer was a tad thick for the amount of fruit. If I were to try this again, I might bake it in a larger pan, or reduce the amount of brioche dough.
Hey, it gets high points for looks, though, huh?
If you'd like to give this a try yourself, please stop by Denise's site or better yet, pick up a copy of the book. See you next week!
