Upside Down Apple Tart Recipe

Upside Down Apple Tart Recipes

Ingredients :


50g butter, softened

40g caster sugar

1 egg

115g plain flour

pinch of salt

Apple layer

75g butter, softened

75g soft light brown


10 Cox's Pippins apples, peeled, cored and thickly sliced

whipped cream, to serve

Method :

To make the pastry, cream the butter and sugar in a bowl until pale and creamy. Beat in the egg, then sift in the flour and salt and mix to a soft dough. Knead lightly on a floured surface, then wrap and chill for 1 hour. Grease a 23cm or 9" cake tin then add 50g of the butter. Place the cake tin on the hob and melt the butter gently. Remove and sprinkle over 50g cup of the sugar. Arrange the apple slices on top, then sprinkle with the remaining sugar and dot with the remaining butter. Preheat the oven to 450F, Gas 8. Place the cake tin on the hob again over a low to medium heat for about 15 minutes, until a light golden caramel forms on the bottom. Remove the pan from the heat.

Roll out the pastry on a lightly floured surface to a round the same size as the tin and lay on top of the apples. Tuck the pastry edges down round the sides of the apples. Bake for about 20-25 minutes, until the pastry is golden. Remove the tart from the oven and leave to stand for about 5 minutes. Place an upturned plate on top of the tin and holding the two together with a dish towel, turn the apple tart out on to the plate. Serve while still warm with whipped cream.

Cox's Pippins apples are perfect for this tart because they hold their shape so well. If they are not available, use another firm, sweet eating apple instead. This delicious caramelized fruit tart from France, known as Tarte Tatin, was originally created by the Tatin sisters who ran a popular restaurant in Sologne in the Orléanais.
