The tarte Tatin, named after the hotel serving it as its signature dish, is a pastry in which the fruit is caramelised in butter and sugar before the tart is baked. It originated in France but has spread to other countries over the years.
One of the easiest desserts to make, even if you consider yourself a terrible cook! The French do have some great ready made pasty in the supermarkets, so no need to spend hours slaving away!
During my research, I found a lot of traditional recipes don't include butter, just sugar!
You can use apples, pears, peaches, plums, apricots............any stoned fruit really! You can add nutmeg, cinnamon, ginger, again the list is endless!
Serve with some homemade ice cream and your job is done!
Here's a simple recipe:
You will need:
Tart pastry and a pie skillet
75g of butter
6/8 apples sliced
1 cup of brown sugar
Grease your tin or pie skillet
melt the sugar and butter together
place the sliced fruit in the skillet
pour over the butter and sugar mixture
place the pastry over the apples
