Short and Sweet (FFwD: Nutella Tartine)

Keeping this week's FFwD short and sweet...


I love recipes that aren't quite recipes - this week, the challenge was in creating the elements that went in to the final assembly.  I went for the bread and the "Nutella".

Bread: Chocolate-Cherry- Almond Panettone
Spread: "not-quite Nutella" spread made with Macadamia nuts and almonds
Jam: sigh, I didn't make this, but I used a lovely organic Moreno cherry jam that I keep on hand for things like this.

The bread can be found here and the "not quite Nutella" can be found here...
Dorie's tartine recipe can be found here on her site.

After this week's amazing debut of Tuesdays with Dorie: Baking with Julia, I have a feeling we are going to see some beautiful white loaves used in this week's tartines. (P.S. Tuesdays with Dorie is open again - it's week one, so join in the fun...)


This post participates in French Fridays with Dorie - stop on by and check out all the "sweet" links this week...

  1. I like the title short and sweet. The bread seems a bit short looking at the ingredients (certainly not as short as pastry) and the other ingredients are sweet:)

  4. Cherries and chocolate are a favorite of mine. We would buy a lot of black forest cakes to celebrate birthdays in my family. Homemade panettone and nut/cocoa spread? If you had done the jam I would have collapsed in awe. I'm all set to assemble my tartine today when I get home from work.

  5. I thought about making my own nutella but was worried about using it all up in two weeks. Now I'm wishing I had. Yours sounds great.

  6. That looks beautiful. And who doesn't like Nutella!

  7. Yup short and sweet indeed. I had to make this again (the hardship!) because I had already made it once so I changed it up a little. But bread, jam and chocolate? What is better??

  8. Nothing better than homemade nutella and bread. :)

  9. I went with making the orange marmalade. I've had a horrible realization that eating nutella too close to evening makes me sick to my stomach, into the next day. Who does that? (Me, of course.) So, I'm glad I didn't do the homemade nutella because I would be eating the fresh stuff all day long, tummy issues be danged.

  10. Love hat you made your bread! Looks wonderful :)

  11. Only YOU would make your own Nutella. Inspirational. My feathered hat is off to you. Am going to try the Pannetone. It looks so good. Busy week. You made "yummy stuff".

  12. Yummo - cherry bread and cherry jam with chocolate spread sounds devine. I want to try it!

  14. Nice to have an easy recipe to enjoy with my grandkids, almost as easy as peanut butter and jelly. We like it and have a fancy alternative to the usual. Love your switches...I'd like to try more nutbutters in the near future.

  15. My goodness, that sounds like homemade deliciousness. I'm very impressed that you made both the bread and the nutella. I went the lazy route and bought everything at the store. Which you rightly point out means that I didn't really ``cook'' anything this week, more assembled.

  16. Not quite Nutella, never heard of it, but sounds good. I Will check up on that recipe. It was an easy recipe and I have read more blogs that used the loaves from TWD. That is à delicious bread indeed.

  17. Great combination of flavors! Thanks for letting me know that Tuesdays with Dorie is starting again. I'm seriously tempted...

    1. It's going to be a fun challege. I am really looking forward to stretching myself (hopefully figuratively, not literally) on some of the recipes. It's definitely going to push me outside of my comfort zone!

  18. I love what you did with your tartine, you really show the versatility of Dorie's recipe this week. When I read the recipe I couldn't believe that I had every single ingredient in my kitchen, including a jar of homemade orange marmalade and a small bag of toasted hazelnuts in my fridge! So, it was kind of meant to be to go with the original recipe but next time I'll get a little more creative, thanks for the inspiration! I thought it was a little overwhelming when I left my link on Tuesdays with Dorie and there were more than 300 links! But, I guess as we get a few posts under our belts it will feel more comfortable, oh well, good luck with our next one;-)

  19. The panettone looks absolutely wonderful all by itself--it probably didn't need any gussying up. But then the gussied-up pictures look great too.

  20. Mmm! Cherries and chocolate always go together very nicely! :)

    ReplyDelete
  21. I bet yours was absolutely fantastic with all those terrific flavors, and the addition of your own Nutella! The cherries are so enticing!

    ReplyDelete
  22. Great combination... Cherry,chocolate and homemade bread, yum!

    ReplyDelete
  23. Now that looks good! I will have to try this with cherry preserves.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Brilliant and beautiful! No wonder your daughter is loving it!

    ReplyDelete
  25. That looks amazing! I love cherries and chocolate... yummm... sorry, had a day dream moment!

    ReplyDelete
  26. Cherry jam was a great choice...I would have preferred this! And you used such a yummy bread~

    ReplyDelete
  27. Looks great, and makes me want to make some panettone!

    ReplyDelete
  28. Great choice of bread and jam! When I saw your Nutella Day entry, I knew I would see it again in a few days! Nice way to echo the cherry of the panettone with the cherry in the jam. Gotta give the panettone a go myself.

  29. Yum, chocolate and cherry...great combo

    ReplyDelete
  30. Love your recombination of this recipe. All the elements sound fantastic. I almost made the tartine twice, once with brioche and once with the white loaves, but the white loaves were spoken for almost as soon as they got out of the oven!

  31. The panettonne sounds delicious. I made my own nutella too, though it was more traditional with hazelnuts. Didn't turn out very spreadable though. I like that you used this recipe as a jumping off point. It was definitely that kind of recipe.
    I'm impressed with all of you doing double duty with FFwD and TWD. I'll try to follow TWD, but being more of a cooker than a baker, I'm opting not to join in. Have fun!

  32. World Nutella Day ? Now I am sad I missed it :) My younger son is going to laugh.Thx for sharing the recipe...never would have dreamed we could whip up a substitute in the kitchen. Very cool. And your entire combo is yummy and photogenic :)Loved how you had the special jam on hand for "things like this"....great post !

  33. That looks awesome on the panettone. Kicks it up a notch.

    ReplyDelete
  34. That "Not Quite Nutella" sounds really really good, I want to try it!
