Apple Tart

Apple Tart

I baked this tart with lots of caramelized apples and filling.

Ingredients: 16 cm tart mold

Tart crust
Recipe ID: 1508960
Apple
1
Margarine or butter
10 g
Sugar
25 g
Milk
50 ml
Sugar
15 g
Cake flour
5 g
Egg
1
Brandy
1 teaspoon

Steps

1. Bake the tart crust.
2. Slice the apple into thin wedges. (about 32 pieces is the best) Cut the wedges in half.
3. Heat butter or margarine in a frying pan. Preheat the oven. (at the temperature listed in the referred recipe)
4. Add the sliced apples into the pan and saute until lightly browned.
5. Add the sugar and saute until brown and remove from heat. (about the color in the picture)
6. Preheat the oven to 180℃.
7. Heat the milk in a pot. Turn off the heat right before it boils and let cool.
8. Add the cake flour and sugar in a bowl and whisk well.
9. Mix in a little more than half of the beaten egg. Add the cooled milk from Step 7 and brandy and continue mixing.
10. Brush the rest of the beaten egg on the tart crust from Step 1. (This prevents the filling from oozing out.)
11. Fill the tart crust with the sauteed apples from Step 5.
12. Pour in the mixture from Step 9.
13. Bake for about 15 minutes at 180℃ in the middle rack of the oven. Once it's cooled, slowly remove from mold and it's done.

Story Behind this Recipe

I wanted to make a delicious apple tart filling without using heavy cream.
I revised a recipe found in a book by changing up the apples a bit and made it into an easy tart made with just milk.
