Amazing Day – 77 Bombay Street
Time goes by, so fast… I’ve added another candle to my birthday cake 2 weeks ago and didn’t have the time to post that recipe here, didn’t have the time to write anything actually. Work, running, guests and activities took my time and I can’t be in front of my computer with the sun shining, I enjoy those nice things as much as I can.
Talking about nice things, here’s one, a classic that I make when I want something delicious but yet very simple. This recipe is more than simple, it’s a combination of others that are on the blog already (the French one, at least). Would you be tempted?
The pastry: a shortcrust pastry or homemade: 150g flour, 75g softened butter, 1 pinch of salt, 2 tbsp sugar, 4cl milk.
The apple compote: you can buy one or do yours: 400g apple (approx. 4), 2 tbsp brown sugar, 1 1/2tbsp lemon zest, 1 lemon juice, 1tsp vanilla extract
Finishing touch: 2 or 3 apples, 2 tbsp brown sugar
Prep: 10mn — Bake: 25mn approx.
The pastry: mix flour, sugar and salt in a mixing bowl. Add butter and knead a little so have a sandy texture. Add milk and knead again. Make a ball and let it cool in the fridge during your prep time.
The compote: peel your apples and dice them. Put those dices in a little saucepan with the other ingredients, let it cook on medium and mix regularly so it’ll not burn. You can mash the rest of apples with a fork or masher but I like to keep them.
Finishing touch: preheat the oven to 190°. Roll the pastry out to fit in your mould and give it some fork punches. Arrange your compote on it. Peel the finishing touch’s apples, cut nice slices and arrange them on top of your compote. Sprinkle with brown sugar. Hop, in the oven during 25mn. Keep an eye on it, it might be less or more depending on your oven.
All I want to do now is to eat that delicious tart, don’t you?
