You know how Macbooks have notes now, like the application? Well I keep it in my dashboard and use it all the time. One note I have is a baking bucket list. On this list is things like a crêpe cake, a tiered cake, a tasty recipe, etc. Now I can cross off a tasty recipe, as I found this video on Tasty and pinned it to make over break. I’ve seen and heard of tarte tatin, but never made it.
It was worth it. The apples were so soft and sweet, but still had a lot of flavor and weren’t too sweet. The crust was flaky and crunchy and contrasted well with the softness of the apples. This dessert is considered to be an upside-down apple tart, since you put the apples into the cake pan first and then lay the crust on top. Very interesting, but turns out very delicious.
It should be noted that it takes a little while to caramelize the apples. I’d suggest just bringing up a stool to the stove so that you can sit there during the process. It’s worth it in the end though. Plus, if you have any extra apples that don’t fit in the pan, they make a perfect (slightly unhealthy) snack! Just know that the apples shrink by a lot when they cook, and they can squish really close together in the pan, so you’ll need more than you think.
