Tuesdays with Dorie: Brioche Plum Tart

Having mastered the Kugelhoph previously I was delighted that Denise of Chez Us picked Brioche Plum Tart this week. Brioche? Phaw, too easy!

That said I'm still always unsure whether I've stuffed up the dough as it is extremely soft and gooey for most of its resting and slapping down stage. But after an overnight rest in the fridge it was really easy to play with.

I used tinned plums with plum jam, brown sugar and pecans and added a sprinkle (maybe a tablespoon) of ground almonds to soak up any excess juice from the plums.

The taste test ...

Rich and buttery brioche with sweet, slightly tart plums ... definitely a winning combination! The crust did get a little darker than I would have liked, and I already tented it after just 10 minutes instead 20 as per the recipe. However even the dark bits were delicious. This got the thumbs up from all my taste testers and my mind is swimming with other possible toppings.

And seeing this blog is called food.baby here is another pic of Oscar, this time in his new Bumbo seat which he loves! It gets him right in the thick of the action at the table. Definitely a little foodie in the making :)


  1. Your tart looks wonderful Susan! I used tined plums too, with pistachios. Oscar is just adorable - so glad he can get close to the action in his new chair.

  2. My edges got really dark, too, but the brioche tasted great.

  3. I tented mine after 10 minutes, too, and it still came out dark. It was still delicious, though! :) p.s. Oscar is precious!!

  4. What a cute little baby! Ilove the look of your brioche, it's so pretty!

  5. Wow that came out absolutely beautiful! Great job! I really enjoyed this, I used cherries and Nutella on one side and plums and jam on the other :)

  6. Thanks for sharing that great pic of Oscar!! He's so cute!! Your tart looks wonderful, like it just came from the bakery.

  7. Your tart looks so tasty! And Oscar is adorable.
