Creamy apple tart

Updated on March 31, 2015

This is one of my favorite recipes, I usually like eating and cooking with apples...yes I am an apple fan...yay. But they are a bit tricky to cook with, if they don't have enough moisture in and around them , they have the bad habit of drying; and instead of a nice tart you get a dried up mess.

This recipe uses another ingredient; the vanilla cream prevent the apples from drying and changes the texture alltogether. I recommend you to try it...I mean comme on I even has chocolate!

Prep time: 30 min
Cook time: 30 min
Ready in: 1 hour
Yields: Serves 8
  • 3 Apples
  • 2 Eggs
  • 120ml Heavy cream
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla essence
  • Chocolate
  • 115g Flour
  • 115g Butter
  • 5 tablespoons Sugar

  1. Mix the 4 tablespoons of sugar with the butter and one egg. Mix well
  2. Once the ingredients are well mixed add the flour and mix well. Once the dough is done, wrapi it in plastic and let it sit in the refrigerator for 15-20 minutes.
  3. While the dough is chilling, cut the apples in halfs then each half cut it in slices. Remove the seeds and the core of the apple. I did variations with the peel on and off, to me there is no difference so in this tutorial you will see I let it on.
  4. Flake the chocolate. Unfortunately I moved recently and I lack certain kitchen items that are found in a kitchen. I for example don't own a grater so I was forced to use a knife...with great results I may say.
  5. After the 20 minutes have passed. Flout the board and roll the dough to a thickness of 0.3-0.4cm. Grease the tart tray and then carefully lay the rolled dough inside the tray, cutting te excess dough. With the extra dough you can make tartlets or biscuits.
  6. Apply the chocolate flakes on the bottom of the tart covering the whole surface. Then lay the apple slices.
  7. Prepare the cream by mixing the remaining sugar, full cream, vanilla and the remaining egg. Pour the cream between the apples.
  8. Preheat the oven at 160degrees Celsius. Let the tart bake for about 20 to 30 minutes. Check the tart if it is done with a wooden toothpick. The cream is fully baked in about 15 minutes, but the dough might take a bit longer to bake so check it before you take it out the oven. If the toothpick comes out of the dough clean, then it is baked.
  9. Let it rest and cool for 1 hour before eating.
