Serves: 8


10 Medium sized granny smith apples peeled and quartered

200g Unsalted Butter

200g Castor Sugar

Two sheets of pre-made puff pastry

Rose petals and a dusting of icing sugar

Vanilla ice cream


  1. Spread the butter and then the sugar onto a 30cm Teflon frying pan.
  2. Using a small knife trim the core out of the apple quarters and place then on their sides into the pan creating a fan effect around the circumference.
  3. Place the pan on a high heat on a gas hob and caramelise to a golden brown. You may need to turn the pan occasionally to achieve and even colour.
  4. Place the two sheets of puff pastry on top of each other, dust with a little flour and roll out evenly until they are the slightly larger than the 30cm Teflon pan.
  5. Trim the pastry into a round shape and place on top of the caramelised apples and tuck in the sides.
  6. Place in a pre-heated oven at 200 degrees until the pastry has turned golden brown.
  7. Remove from the oven and allow to rest for two minutes.
  8. Place a tray on top of the pan and quickly flip, allow the tart to release from the pan and remove.
  9. Cut into eight even-sized pieces and serve with a good scoop of vanilla ice cream.
  10. Garnish with a sprinkling of rose petals and dusting of icing sugar.
