Oh wow these tartines were good made with toasted homemade white bread slathered with butter, orange marmalade, drizzled with Nutella and sprinkled with toasted hazelnuts. Such a treat and wonderful idea from Around My French Table by Dorie Greenspan. This recipe is one of my favorites this month for French Fridays with Dorie, please check out the rest of the contributors to this online cooking group and consider cooking along with the group. I believe that the simple recipes are the best ones, especially something as delicious as this tartine made for the most part from ingredients you may have on hand. I made homemade white bread this week for the new Tuesdays with Dorie group that has started baking their way through Baking with Julia by Dorie Greenspan. I struggled with what to do with 2 loaves of the white bread that I baked this week but I just kept thinking grandchildren, I can give it to my grandchildren which is exactly what I did after I made the Nutella tartines! Please find the recipe including step by step instructions for baking White Loaves here at Someone’s In The Kitchen.
I decided to make one loaf of cinnamon raisin bread which makes great toast for breakfast. I just rolled out the dough (before shaping into the loaf), spread it with softened butter, sugar, cinnamon and sprinkled on a handful of raisins.
One more parting shot of the white bread’s interior which baked up high as promised. I haven’t baked white bread since high school and as I recall used the recipe from The Joy Of Cooking.
