Sweet delicious golden tarte tatin…famous around the world and super easy to make! A winner for any occasion.
I have to admit that we’ve been indulging on this cake lately. I think I’ve made it like 3 times the past weeks… I mean, first time, I’d just gotten a new cast iron skillet so I had to try it and then of course I had to take photos of it and last time it was Sunday, and cold and rainy 😉 so you can see that any excuse is good to make it 😉
Here’s what you’ll need:
3 or 4 pink lady apples
Peel the apples and slice them in circles or quarters, removing all the seeds.
In a cast iron skillet, warm up the butter and sugar in low heat. Place the apples and cook for 15 min or until to see they are soft and golden. Take it of the fire and let it rest for a few minutes.
Pre heat the oven to 190c.
In a floured surface, roll the puff pasty and cut it to fit the skillet. Cover the apples in the skillet with the pasty, making a few holes to let it breathe.
I like to add a little bit of butter over it with a pastry brush( if you can take some of the buttery juice from the skillet before , even better)
Place in the oven and cook for 25 min , or until nice and golden.
Let it rest for a few minutes and flip it on a plate, carefully as skillets tent to be really heavy !
Et voila! You’ve make Tarte Tatin… and of course the best way to eat it with warm with some nice vanilla ice cream ! Enjoy! 🙂
If you don’t have a cast iron skillet, or if you want to make individual tarte tatins . you can also do it in a regular pan and then transfer the apples to an oven proof dish. Make sure you put some butter and sugar before in the mold, I like to put a little extra on the sides, this will caramelize and leave you yummie crunchy corners! 🙂
