Brioche Apple Tart- Tuesday’s with Dorie

I love bread and my goal this summer is to work on my bread making skills so this was a perfect recipe for me (that and the fact that I am on vacation and Claire isn’t). I was pleased that Denise of Chez Us picked the Brioche Plum Tart as I have always wanted to try making brioche. Now I would have tried the plum version but I am vacationing at my mom’s house and she is an apple fan so I needed to switch it up. I used seedless raspberry jam and I added a half a teaspoon of cinnamon to the sugar mixture and omitted the nuts (bakers prerogative, nuts are not my fave).

Now given as I am new to bread I have to say this was a bit time consuming, the deflating and the refrigerating and warming, it seemed to be a time suck, not hard but it required a bit of attention. Needless to say I am glad that I am on vacation because I don’t think I would have time for this during the busy school year.

So all in all it turned out very well. It is nice to have people to bake for; however, both my mother and Lisa (my vacation partner) have indicated that I can’t bake all the time. Lisa is getting married in August and is concerned that I am going to mess with her wedding dress, I say she just needs to run a bit more! With all this time on my hands I can’t help it if I bake up a storm.
