tarte tatin, apple

Tarte Tatin is a French dessert, and is essentially an upside down tart. It was invented accidentally in the 1880s by hotelier, Stéphanie Tatin, when she left the apples for an apple pie, coming too long with butter and sugar. Smelling it burn, she tried to rescue it by putting the pastry on top and doing a quick oven bake. She tipped it upside down, and her guests loved the it, quickly turning it into signature dish.

Preparation Time: 45 minutes
Cooking Time: 30 minutes
Makes: 2 tarts

200g plain white flour
100g margarine
1 tbsp Truvia Sweetener (or 100g caster sugar if you prefer)
1 egg
120g homemade Bailey's butter
4 cooking apples

Blend the flour, margarine, and sweetener/sugar in a food processor until it forms a breadcrumb like consistency.

Beat in the egg so that it forms a dough, then wrap it in cling film, and leave it to chill in the fridge.

Core, peel, and slice the apples.

Pre-heat oven to 200 ༠C/ 180 ༠C fan/375 ༠F/5 Gas.
Heat the Bailey's butter in a saucepan, then pour evenly into two 20 inch sandwich tins.


Layer the apples on top.


Take the pastry out of the fridge, roll it out, and over the two tarts.


Bake in the oven, the tip upside down onto a plate.
