Recipe | Apple Tarte Tartin

By 9:39 AM , , , ,

This was such an easy and delicious recipe to make, I can't believe I hadn't made it before. The pastry and apple become beautifully caramelised through the cooking process and taste amazing together. And as easy as it was to make, it was even easier to eat! The tarte was gobbled up by my family not too long after it left the oven! A few days after making this I tried the same process but instead of putting puff pastry on top, I poured over a batter of butter sponge cake I had whipped up and it turned out nicely too.

  • 1 sheet Puff pastry
  • 1 Large apple, quartered and thinly sliced
  • 1/2 cup Caster sugar
  • 1 tsp Butter
  • 1/4 cup Maple Syrup
  • 1 tbsp Extra caster sugar
  • 1 tbsp Cinnamon
Cooking Directions
  1. Place the sugar in a medium pot, over medium heat. Do not stir, wait until the sugar begins to melt and turn brown. When this happens, tilt the pot around so that the melted sugar distributes throughout. Do this a few times (but do not stir!) until all the sugar is a golden brown.
  2. Stir butter into the sugar syrup. Then mix through apples.
  3. Arrange apples on the bottom of a tart tin, then pour remaining liquid and maple syrup over the apples.
  4. Mix together extra sugar and cinnamon, sprinkle over the apples.
  5. Place puff pastry over the apples, tucking under the sides
  6. Bake in a 170 degree (Celsius) oven for 30 minutes.
  7. Remove and allow it to cool. After cooling, turn it upside to serve.
