Apple Tarte Tatin

Well if this is not one of the most easiest desserts and tastiest to create, not to mention one to surely impress the friends, then I don’t know what is!

Without further adieu…here’s the recipe!


  • 1-2 pink lady apples (depending on the size)
  • ¼ cup maple syrup
  • 50 grams of unsalted butter
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon sugar
  • 2 sheets puff pastry
  • sprinkle of brown sugar
  • 1 mid-size frypan


  1. Preheat normal oven to 180ºc.
  2. Cut apple into quarters. Removing the stork and seeds, slice the apple thinly (around ½ cm thick)
  3. Get your frypan and wrap the handle in foil. Place on the stove and melt butter, then shortly after it has melted add in the maple syrup, cook 1 – 2 minutes. (Don’t allow the maple syrup to boil or crystalise.)
  4. Remove the puff pastry from the freezer and allow to thaw.
  5. Take the pan off the heat and arrange the apples in a fan like fashion until the entire base of the pan is covered. Sprinkle the cinnamon sugar and the brown sugar over the apples. Drizzle a little more maple syrup over the apples, brush evenly and cook for 5 – 6 minutes.
  6.  Combine the two sheets of puff pastry and press together. Cut to the size of the pan and discard any excess.
  7. Remove the pan and apples off the stove and place in the puff pastry. Be sure to press down on the fruit to avoid any air pockets.
  8. Brush the pastry with water.
  9. Pop into the oven for 25 – 30 minutes or until the pastry is a golden colour.
  10. Once cooked remove from the oven, flip onto a cooling rack. Cut up and serve immediately with vanilla-bean ice-cream.
