Although, as I blogged before, I'm very busy I couldn't let this one pass by: nutella tartine. A brioche spreader with, in my case plum jam, melted nutella and sprinkled with hazelnuts. Can you think of something better?
Unfortunately I can. It sounds promising.
I began with baking my own brioche as I did in the recipe a few weeks ago and the brioche was very nice. I put it under the grill and it tasted delicious. The prune jam taste great as you can see my last jar is almost empty. Hazelnuts and Nutella a great combination (I even stopped a few hours with my project to make this), but the combination was nice, but not great.
The original recipe is with orange marmalade and my husband and I discussed if that was a better combination. Maybe, but we don't think that would be a winner. We thought the fruit was an addition that wasn't necessary for such a great thing as a brioche with nutella and hazelnuts.
Don't get me wrong after reading this that it tasted awful, everything was gone, but I'm not going to make this very often.
To bad, but I learned that we like plain nutella the most on a brioche.
Last week the recipe was a gorgonzola apple quiche and because I had a lot to do and the combination sounded a bit weird (sorry Dorie), I did not make it. But the reactions from the other Doristas were so great that I am going to make it and probably next week because that recipe contains mussels and I can't find one mussel fan in my household.
So all of you a very good weekend and I'm going further on with my garden plan.
