Do you know Tarte Tatin, the French tart with apples and caramel? I have a recipe on my blog, you will find the classic tarte tatin recipe here. However, today I am going to introduce the summer variation with apricots. This apricot tart the French way only contains six ingredients: a lot of ripe and delicious apricots, flour, sugar, butter, an egg yolk to make the crust and rosemary. That’s it!
Today I brought along the cutest strawberry pie with roses and a little heart. Below you will find step-by-step instructions so that your roses just look the same. This time I thought I would make a simple cake for Mother’s Day. If you want to have something more festive, try this chocolate strawberry layer cake or this strawberry tiramisu cake. But today I thought a very simple pie would be perfect. I mean, simple doesn’t necessarily mean bad, does this? I think I put as much love into this pie as into that layer cake.
As you can see from the pictures, this is a pie full of strawberries, in total it contains 800 grams of strawberries. Mind you, after having hulled them. Strawberry pies can be ticky, you don’t want the filling to be mushy. So for that reason I went with tapioca starch, which works better than cornstarch. But in case you don’t have tapioca close by, cornstarch will do.
I’ve decided to give a favorite family recipe of ours another twist and introduce a super simple, yet delicious rhubarb tart with streusel to you. Why it is simple you ask? It has a pie crust, rhubarb filling and streusel. That’s it. But if you ask me, the simple and easy recipes are often the best. Do you agree with this statement?
Tart Tatin, simple, plain, classic. This is what you will get on my blog today. Reason for it was a colleague of mine you gifted me with some home-grown apples. So then I thought, finally I have the chance to actually introduce this classic recipe here, even though I have been making it for a while already. This time I wanted to do it the really old-fashioned way, you know, with an oven-proof skillet, with apples, caramel and a pastry dough. Can you believe that classic tarte tartin actually only contains four ingredients: apples, sugar, butter, and flour?
Today I am introducing a delicious plum tart with cinnamon streusel. To be honest, I don’t even understand why I haven’t posted the recipe here before. It is a recipe that has been passed on in my family. The tart you see below was eaten by a few people fighting over the last piece. I have mentioned elsewhere that I usually don’t eat more than a piece of all the cakes I produce, but with this tart I was happy to ask for a second and even third slice. That’s how good it is.
