150 ml
★Ready-made pancake mix
3 tablespoons
30 g

Pancake mix
100 g
Silken tofu
50 g


1. Make the tart shell referring to Recipe ID:344146 Prepare the apples and filling while the tart shell is resting.
2. Put pie weights on the tart shell and bake at 180℃ for 12 minutes. (Pie weights are optional.)
3. After baking, smooth out any air bubbles in the bottom of the crust with your finger or a spoon.
4. Caramel Apples: Cut the apple in quarters and thinly slice each quarter. Put butter in a frying pan and sauté the apples. Add the honey and simmer over medium heat until the liquid has gone, being careful not to let it burn.
5. Filling: Mix the egg, sugar and pancake mix together until there are no more lumps. Mix in the heavy cream, a bit at a time. Lastly, add the vanilla.
6. Pour the filling into the tart shell and arrange the apples on top. Bake at 180℃ for 30 minutes. Brush with nappage or sprinkle with powdered sugar to finish.
7. If using raw apples, cut 1/2 an apple into thin slices lengthwise, then cut the slices in half again, to make them easier to arrange.

9. Made with strawberries instead! Cut the strawberries in half and put them in the tart shell in layers. Bake in an unbaked tart shell (no pre-baking required) for 40 minutes at 170℃.
