RECIPE | Apple Tarte Tatin

Do I have treat for you today! Quick to make, easy, and most of all tasty! that will be the best way to describe today’s tarte tatin recipe!

For those of you that don’t know what a tarte tatin is: it’s an upside-down tart! My apple version sounds a lot like a regular apple pie, but because of the upside-down technique, the apples have a more moist and sweeter taste.

Here’s how: Enjoy!

For the dough

50 g butter
50 g powdered sugar
150 g flour
1 egg

For the apples
100 g butter
100 g sugar
4 apples
1 tblsp cinnamon

– Preheat the oven to 220 degrees
– Mix the ingredients for the dough together. Knead the dough with your hands and form a ball.
– Place the dough ball in the fridge for 20 to 30 minutes

– Peel the apples and remove the cores. Slice them into 8 wedges per apple
– Put the sugar into a pan and place it on a medium heat. Keep stirring the sugar until it has caramelized, add the butter and keep stirring.
– Pour the sugar and butter mixture into the springvorm. 
– Place the apple parts on top of the sugar and butter mixture. Make sure that you cover the whole area.


– Take the dough out of the fridge and use a rolling pin to make a round surface. place this over the apples in the springform. Use the leftover dough and this all around the springform.(see image)
– Place the springform in the oven for 30 minutes.


– Let the tarte tatin cool down for a few minutes.
– Place a serving platter upside down on top of the pastry and CAREFULLY flip the platter and the pan over. Let the tart fall gently out of the pan.


** It’s even more delicious with some vanilla ice cream!
