|27 min.||50 min.||1 hour 17 min.|
|1||You will need a pan or tin which can go both on the hob and in the oven, preferably non-stick.
Cut a circle of puff pastry the same diameter as your pan, prick all over and put back in fridge.
|2||Peel 1 kg apple, cut into 4 or 8 according to size, remove core.||10 min.|
|3||Melt 60 g butter in your pan over medium heat, add 120 g caster sugar.
It might seem to you that there is a lot of butter, but don't worry, it's normal: the apples will absorb most of it.
|4||Put apple quarters into melted butter, packed together as closely as possible.
Leave to cook until sugar caramelises.
Preheat oven to 356°F (180°C).
|5||After about 10 minutes, sugar will start to caramelise and apple juice boil.||15 min.|
|6||The apples are sufficiently cooked when sugar around the edge of the pan is a light caramel colour.|
|7||Put pan in the oven for 5 minutes.||5 min.|
|8||After these 5 minutes, remove and put puff pastry on top.||3 min.|
|9||Put back in the oven for about 20 minutes.||20 min.|
|10||Remove from oven when puff pastry is golden brown.|
|11||Now for the tricky bit: use oven gloves to protect your hands and put serving plate on top of Tatin tart.
You should do this operation whle hot, otherwise apples stick on the bottom of the pan during cooling.
|12||Turn over smartly...||1 min.|
|13||... then remove pan: your Tatin is a success!||1 min.|
|14||At my opinion, nothing goes better with warm tart Tatin than a little whipped cream (crème chantilly).|
