TWD: Brioche Nectarine Tart

yeastbrioche

I was so excited for that this was the brioche plum tart and not just plum tart because brioche is so much yummier than tart crust! I didn't have a fancy fluted pan so I used my 9 inch springform. I substituted the plums with nectarines, used peach jam and omitted the nuts. I tried to keep it as simple as possible by not doing the slap down every 30 minutes of the refrigerated dough because I was worried I would ruin it with my inexperience with yeast. Instead, I let the dough rise at room temperature until doubled, shaped it into the pan and then let it rise a second time. I sort of had this great idea in my head to make a twist border, but as it is most of the time, imagining something doesn't always translate well when executed.

I didn't expect to like this so much because it looked pretty flat going into the oven and I thought I was going to end up with a stone. Thankfully, it puffed up to double its size once it started to bake. Despite my sour nectarines (which was the result of omitting the sugar because I can't stand syrupy fruits) this was really good!

Thanks so much to Denise of Chez Us for choosing this recipe! You can find the recipe on her blog or in Dorie's book. Don't forget to check out the TWD blogroll!

  5. It's BEAUTIFUL, Steph! Definitely the prettiest brioche tart I've seen this morning. I'm with you on tart crust...maybe it's just because mine are never very good, but I would just as soon have tart without tart crust!

  14. One of the best ones I've seen... you are pretty lucky or perhaps simply very good with yeast! Which I'm not... Pfff! LOL

    Didn't rick it and made last year's galette instead. Maybe in my next life, I'll learn how to use yeast properly... but I think for this one, I'm a pretty lost cause.

  22. beautiful tart. try slapping it down in the fridge and letting it rest overnight - it gets better flavor that way
