Surprize!! this was a great patio breakfast! The brioche was nice and crisp and fluffy at the same time and the plums were a delicious treat!! We hunted for fresh plums but it's just not the right time of the year around here, had to use canned whole plums which work really well. I rinsed the syrup off them with cold water, removed the stones and used as if fresh. Instead of the sugar I used Splenda to sprinkle over them, they were perfect after exactly 12 minutes. We enjoyed them very much and will again often, thanks for sharing a delightful change!!
