Tarte Tatin is an absolute winner of a French dessert that's ideal for ending a dinner party with some serious style! It's a sumptuous celebration of apples and caramel, invented by a pair of French sisters and beloved by foodies everywhere ever since.
Now, a lot of people will tell you that tarte Tartin is tricky to make, and yes, it can be downright fiendish to get the recipe right. However, we're big fans of simplicity here at British Bakeware, and we've come up with an easy way to get the tarte right - you'll be amazed at how effortlessly it all comes together!
So, without further ado, here is our Cheater's Guide to Tarte Tatin...
- 1 Packet of Ready-Rolled Puff Pastry
- 6 Medium Cox Apples (peeled, quartered and cored)
- 50g Butter
- 50g Golden Caster Sugar
- ½ Tsp Cinnamon
- Juice of ½ Lemon
Step 1 - Melt the butter in a medium grill pan, then stir in the sugar and cinnamon until the mixture caramelises. Add the apples and continue cooking on a medium heat for around 10 minutes, all the while basting the apples in the caramel. Remove the grill pan from the heat.
Step 2 - Unroll the packet of pastry and make a few small air holes in it using a fork. Lay the pastry over the apples, trimming any excess with a sharp knife or scissors, and tucking in the edges neatly around the apples.
Step 3 - Place the grill pan in a pre-heated oven for around 20 to 30 minutes at 200oC, or until the pastry is golden and delicious. To finish your apple masterpiece, run a knife around the edge of the pan, then place a plate over the top and quickly spin the dish over so the tart turns out beautifully onto your plate – voila!
