Having recently conquered Dorie's sticky buns, I was delighted this week to find that, courtesy of Tuesdays with Dorie and our host, Denise of Chez Us, I would be making another recipe based on Dorie's golden brioche. This time, it was a Plum Brioche Tart.
Plums are not in season here, so I used canned plums, which I dried between paper towels for around half an hour. Despite this, my finished tart was still very juicy, with pools of juice on top. However, I didn't think that this detracted from the flavour - it was not so soggy as to turn my brioche to mush, and I enjoyed the fact that this was not an overly sweet baked treat.
The only other change that I made from the recipe was to use chopped pistachios in the topping rather than walnuts or almonds, primarily because that was what I had in the cupboard.
Doesn't it look lovely with its golden centre:
