tarte tropézienne

A year ago, the group made Dorie’s Tarte Tropézienne, a pastry cream-filled, sugar-sprinkled brioche cake. I did not. That’s why rewind week comes in handy. I’d never had a Trop before…now I know what I’ve been missing. I really like pastry cream. And brioche.

Trops come in various sizes. I chose to make individual ones rather than slice up a large one. Mine came out looking a little more like burger buns than like the flatter cakes they should be…I clearly didn’t press the dough out enough. No matter, they were still delicious. I served them with chopped strawberries alongside, but next time I may put the berries inside instead.

For the recipe, see Baking Chez Moi by Dorie Greenspan. Don’t forget to check out the rest of the TWD Blogroll!

  1. This dessert was a lovely surprise. We all liked this one.

  2. I love your trop. We all loved it. Mine did not look this great though, but still very good.

  3. One of my favorite – admittedly, very decadent! – treats. So great with fresh berries too!

  4. They are yum…i have only ever had them in France 🙂
