Tuesdays With Dorie – Brioche Strawberry & Nutella Tart

by Jessica on July 14, 2009

Brioche Strawberry Tart

TWD recipes + meetings that require treats = perfection.

This past weekend, I had a very productive officer meeting with my Dallas EK sisters, to which I was asked to bring a dessert (and where, by the way, we decided that ’09-’10 programming will rock). So… I got to work on the brioche dough on Saturday afternoon (after a little shopping trip), while the outside temps continued to climb into the 100s (PERFECT weather for rising brioche dough, not so perfect for Hornedfroggy to be comfortable).

The dough rose like a gem and on Sunday morning, I covered it with Nutella, strawberries and the walnut topping and popped it into the oven. I didn’t get a pretty picture of the gorgeous thing before it was devoured, but I came home with maybe 1/4 of it left… that’s a good sign, right?? 😀

And contrary to Dorie’s notes in the book, it was even great the next morning for breakfast. This is a seriously good tart and it’s really, really easy to put together. Perfect for brunches, get-togethers and meetings. 😉

Your tart is perfect! I had trouble visualizing what a ‘brioche tart’ would look like – and now I know, exactly!

What a creative topping: strawberries, walnuts, and Nutella. I used apricots and almonds — this brioche would be great with just about anything on top!

Nutella and strawberries – sounds like perfection!

Wow. Great combo! I want some now.
Well done!

Pretty!! You’re pathetic friend Amy punked out again and remains a “brioche-virgin”….so sad.

Looks delicious!
I love that you used nutella, strawberries and walnuts.


10 Teanna July 14, 2009 at 1:36 pm

I LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE that you used Nutella! I think I would have went nuts over this if there was nutella on it!


11 Michelle July 14, 2009 at 1:38 pm

Your baking heart did a wonderful job on this brioche! I love it! Great combo. with all the flavors going on!


12 Leslie July 14, 2009 at 3:08 pm

What a delicious snack to bring to your meeting! No wonder you didn’t manage to salvage much!


13 Sugar B July 14, 2009 at 4:02 pm

I like your filling a lot better than plums!

Great job! 😉


14 Kim July 14, 2009 at 8:58 pm

Wow. I wish I was at the meeting. Everyone came up with such great fruit combinations. Strawberries and nutella…yummy.


15 Amanda July 14, 2009 at 10:29 pm

I used Nutella too, but with cherries 🙂 and I did plums with jam on the other half. I loved the Nutella side! Yours look fabulous, so glad everyone like it!


16 Kayte July 15, 2009 at 7:03 am

I figured there was a way you were all going to try to bring chocolate into this mix!! LOL. Well, I am happy that you loved it…mine was sans chocolate, and don’t you dare tell the guys there is a chocolate version!


17 Tracey July 15, 2009 at 8:47 am

I love your flavor combination! The tart looks awesome! I’m a bit late this week and still working on getting my tart baked and the more blogs I read, the more flavor combinations I want to try 🙂


18 Kim July 15, 2009 at 8:49 am

Looks and sounds great. Brioche is so delicious and I can’t imagine how great it would be with chocolate and strawberries. Great combinations.


19 Margaret July 15, 2009 at 11:34 am

If there isn’t much to photograph, you know it was good.

Chocolate and strawberries!!!



20 Melissa July 15, 2009 at 8:02 pm

The nutella and strawberry sound wonderful together. That’s my kind of brioche!!


21 Nutmeg Nanny July 16, 2009 at 1:56 pm

I love that you used nutella! I have a full container in my cabinet I need to use up and this recipe sound delicious!!!


22 Spike July 16, 2009 at 2:41 pm
