Gin Tarte Tatin

A delicious Tarte Tatin is exactly what you need this cold January…especially when it’s spiked with GIN! 

Whilst enjoying a glass of Peaky Blinder Spiced Gin, I really fancied a slice of Tarte Tatin. A couple of hours later, I quickly gave this recipe a try…. and oh-boy did it work! This is a must try and will seriously impress your friends!

 

Gin Apple Tarte Tatin

1 block of ready-made puff pastry (or you can make yourself of course!)

6 apples peeled, cored and quartered
(I used Braeburn)

Juice of ½ a lemon

100g golden caster sugar

Tsp of ground cinnamon

75g butter – cubed

50ml Gin (Peaky Blinder Spiced Gin works great!)

 

 

 

 

Method

  • Preheat oven to 180ºC.
  • Roll out your pastry and cut out using a dinner plate as a guide – you need it a little bigger than the frying pan.
  • Peel, core and quarter your apples. Squeeze over the lemon juice to stop them from browning and pop them in the fridge until required.
  • Use a non-stick oven proof frying pan and add the sugar and let gently dissolve over a low to medium heat. Do not stir the pan but just shake the pan until dissolved.
  • Heat until it becomes golden. When it starts to look like caramel, add the butter and cinnamon.
  • When the caramel is bubbling add the gin and cook for a couple of minutes.
  • Arrange the apple quarters in the bottom of the pan and cook for around 10 minutes over a low heat.
  • Carefully top with your puff pastry and tuck the edges in – Use a spoon to be safe as the caramel is very hot! Prick with a small sharp knife.
  • Bake for 30-35 minutes until the pastry is golden.
  • Remove from the oven and leave to cool for a few minutes before using a tray/board to carefully turn the tart out! (watch my video below to see how I did it!)
  • Enjoy!
