Tart Tatin

Tart tatin is the perfect dessert – you can make it quickly and easily using ready-made puff pastry, which is usually vegan, too. Here, the puff pastry tarte has been turned upside down, but it is baked with the puff pastry lid on top of the caramelised fruits and is then turned out for serving.

Total Time
1 Hour 10 Minutes
5 eating apples
2 tbsp of sugar
75g of margarine
1 pinch of salt
250g-400g of puff pastry
Step 1

Use a metal frying pan that can be baked in the oven. Pre-heat the oven to 175°C/350°F/Gas 4.

Step 2

Peel the apples and remove the cores. Cut the apples in half if they are small, or into thicker pieces for larger apples.

Step 3

Heat the sugar in the frying pan until all the sugar has melted and caramelised slightly, being careful not to let it burn. Remove from the hob and carefully add the margarine, salt and the pieces of apple and let it cook for 10-15 minutes. Remove from the heat.

Step 4

Cover with the puff pastry and fold the edges in towards the apples in the frying pan. Cut a small cross or make a few holes in the puff pastry with a fork or skewer.

Step 5

Bake for 25-30 minutes until the puff pastry has risen and looks well baked. Bring the tarte out of the oven and carefully invert it onto a plate.
