|My lovely brioche loaf with the Nutella Tartine fixings|
The loaf was the perfect size for this recipe. Even though I scoffed a bit at calling this a recipe, I did manage to screw it up. I discovered that getting even a little bit of water from your double boiler in your Nutella as it is heating turns it into a hard, unmanageable mess, so the first batch of the lovely stuff had to be chucked amid much cursing and slamming of pots and pans. (This was a morning, pre-caffeinated event, and therefore subject to crabbiness). Round two came off without a hitch, however and those lovely brioche slices toasted up nicely under the broiler. I think next time I will use a toaster or toast both sides of the bread under the broiler to have a uniform texture. Spread the marmalade, drizzle the Nutella and toss on some hazelnuts and you have a rich, decadent, delicious treat that is insanely easy to make, and it looks rather impressive.
Wish I could say that I am looking forward to next week's recipe, however seafood is not my thing, so I may have to skip and post on something the group has already tried prior to my joining. Regardless, I hope you all have a good week. Bon apetit!
