TWD: Brioche Plum Tart


As I'll be leaving SA this week, I prepared 3 of the recipes chosen for TWD this month in advance and one of them was brioche plum tart, which is a recipe picked by Denise of Chez Us.

I used a 9-inch fluted pan for the tart. And instead of jam, I spread a layer of osmanthus syrup on the brioche dough. To finish it off, I arranged slices of red and yellow plums on the dough and then sprinkled some chopped pistachio on it.

The sides of the tart were overly browned, and so I have to shave off the slightly burnt edges with a sharp knife. The tart was really yummy, I like the bready base and the floral aroma from the osmanthus syrup went very well with the plums.

Head over to Denise's blog if you want to give the recipe a try!
