Upside Down Apple Tart Recipe

Pinterest-Google-Plus-Image-of-Upside-Down-Apple-Tart-Recipe-Helena-Recipes

Upside Down Apple Tart Recipe or La Tarte Des Demoiselles Tatin, hot or cold, is a great tart with a lovely mass of caramelized apples. Hence, if you are an apple lover, this tart is definitely something you will enjoy!

It’s been a while since I made a cake (like this Homemade Apple Pie, for example). In fact, I wasn’t even going to make one any time soon. But one day when I was making an unplanned grocery run, strolling through a fruits & veggies row, I stumbled upon a full box of fresh inviting apples. They were too cute, and I couldn’t leave them in the store.

La Tarte Des Demoiselles Tatin

The apple box reminded me of the time Vladi and I were picking up apples in the village. At some point we got tired of filtering the ones on the ground, so Vladi got on a tree and shook it so hard that all I remember was running away fast, as it was raining with apples. Big apples. The type of apples that give birth to new thoughts… or new bumps. 🙂

The point I am trying to make is… that particular apple box reminded me of the good times. And good memories motivated me to create this La Tarte Des Demoiselles Tatin recipe which I found in Julia Child’s book as soon as we got back.

Making Upside Down Apple Tart

Before you start making this delicious tart, I have a quick tip for you to keep in mind. For a good-looking circle base of a tart, roll pastry first. Then take a round plate, put it on the pastry and use a knife to cut a circle. And then cover up the apples with your base.

Steps

1
Done
3 min

Prepare Apples

Quarter, core and peel apples. Then cut into length-wise thick slices and toss in a bowl with sugar and cinnamon.

2
Done
3 min

Layer in Baking Dish

Butter the baking dish heavily on the base. Sprinkle half the sugar in the base of the dish and arrange a third of the apples over it. Again sprinkle with a third of the melted butter and repeat with a layer of half the remaining apples and butter. Sprinkle the rest of the sugar over the apples.

3
Done
4 min

Preheat Oven & Cover Apples

Preheat to 375°F (190°C).

In the meantime, cover the apples with the pastry, 0,2" (0.5 cm) thick. Cut 4 or 5 holes about 0,15'' (0.4 cm) long in the top of the pastry to allow the cooking stream to escape.

4
Done
45 min

Bake Tart

Bake tart in a lower part of the preheated oven for up to 35-45 minutes. The tart is done when you see a thick brown syrup rather than a light liquid exuding from the apples between the crust and the edge of the dish. The apples need to become caramelized and brown. When ready, unmold the tart on to a serving dish.

5
Done
2 min

Decorate (Optional)

Sprinkle with the sugar powder on top if you prefer some decoration.

6
Done

Enjoy

The Upside Down Apple Tart is ready. Bon appétit!

HAHAHA – I guess Vladi getting up in that tree and shaking it meant more fresh apples – right? 🙂 By the way, this tart looks so fabulous! I haven’t ever had an upside down apple tart before so this is so unique for me as well.

Haha, I remember that day. That was fun 🙂 Another good memory for me is how all of those apples that we had picked turned into this delicious tart. The experience to remember. ❤️
