  1. 1. On Sundays when we have finished our special Sunday meal, my husband and son ask: what about pudding? Then I 'wake up' and quickly put something together! Herewith the recipe for last Sunday's impromptu pudding!

    Quick-quick Tarte Tatin:
    (enough for 3 people)
    Ready made puff pastry, defrosted,
    enough to cover the dish being used.

    Peel 3 apples (I used 'Pink Lady')
    Cut each half into 4 slices

    Melt together:
    3 tablespoons butter
    3/4 cup castor sugar
    (I used ordinary sugar, having none other)
    Heat should be low, stir continuously until caramel coloured.

    Pour the caramel mix into a small ovenproof pie dish.
    Top it with the apple slices, remember a pinch of salt.
    Sprinkle some lemon zest on top of the apples.

    Now back to the puff pastry:
    Cut a square/circle large enough to cover the top of your pie dish, stretch it a little if you want to have it thinner (which is a good idea)
    Using your fingers, press the edges of the pastry into the pie dish, all around the apples.

    Bake in PREHEATED oven, 180°C, until golden brown (30 min)

    Serve, delicious with cream.....we had no cream on the day and enjoyed it as is!

    Want to be real fancy? - When out of the oven and cooled off a bit, you can place a bigger plate over the pie, turn it upside down and present it with the apples on top...... be very careful not to burn yourself!

    Voila, enjoy!
