What ingredients do I need to make an apple tart? ❓

1) 100 g / 3.5 oz of granulated sugar
2) 50 ml / 1.7 fl oz of water
3) 300 g / 10 oz of apple
4) 400 g / 14 oz of puff pastry dough
5) some cinnamon powder (optional)

How to make apple tart step from scratch? ❓

1) remove the stub and seeds, then slice the apples into tiny rounds
2) place the sugar into a saucepan, pour over water, then place the pan over medium heat and wait to caramelize the sugar
3) when the caramel is golden (not dark brown!) pour it into the baking mold that you use to make the apple cake and spread it into a layer
4) place the apple slices over the hot caramel in a spiraled shape or another shape after your wish; sprinkle over some cinnamon powder if you wish
5) place a dough sheet over the apple slices and press its edges to the bottom of the tray to seal the filling
6) make some small cuts into the dough sheet to get out the steam during baking and cut the excess dough on the edge if necessary
7) place the mold into the preheated oven at 180 C / 360 F and bake the French apple tart until becomes golden on top
8) overturn the apple pie on a platter as soon as you take out the mold from the oven (work very carefully to avoid burning your skin with the hot caramel!) and wait to cool to room temperature
9) cut the upside-down apple cake into slices of the desired size and serve it
