French Apple Pie (Apple Tart Recipe)

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

Did You Know? Health Benefits

A tart is a baked dish consisting of a filling over a pastry base with an open-top not covered with pastry. The pastry is usually shortcrust pastry; the filling may be sweet or savory, though modern tarts are usually fruit-based, sometimes with custard. Tartlet refers to a miniature tart; an example would be egg tarts. The categories of “tart”, “flan”, “quiche”, and “pie” overlap, with no sharp distinctions.

There are many types of tarts, with popular varieties including Treacle tart, meringue tart, tart Tatin and Bakewell tart. A jam tart uses jam in place of fresh fruit.

Did You Know? Health Benefits

Apples are one of the most popular fruits — and for good reason. They’re an exceptionally healthy fruit with many research-backed benefits.

1. Apples Are Nutritious

A medium apple — with a diameter of about 3 inches (7.6 centimeters) — equals 1.5 cups of fruit. Two cups of fruit daily are recommended on a 2,000-calorie diet.

What’s more, the same serving provides 2–4% of the RDI for manganese, copper, and vitamins A, E, B1, B2, and B6.

Apples are also a rich source of polyphenols. While nutrition labels don’t list these plant compounds, they’re likely responsible for many of the health benefits.

2. Apples May Be Good for Weight Loss

Apples are high in fiber and water — two qualities that make them filling.

In one study, people who ate apple slices before a meal felt fuller than those who consumed applesauce, apple juice, or no apple products.

In the same study, those who started their meal with apple slices also ate an average of 200 fewer calories than those who didn’t.

In another 10-week study in 50 overweight women, participants who ate apples lost an average of 2 pounds (1 kg) and ate fewer calories overall, compared to those who ate oat cookies with a similar calorie and fiber content.

Researchers think that apples are more filling because they’re less energy-dense, yet still deliver fiber and volume.

Furthermore, some natural compounds in them may promote weight loss.

A study in obese mice found that those given a supplement of ground apples and apple juice concentrate lost more weight and had lower levels of “bad” LDL cholesterol, triglycerides, and total cholesterol than the control group.
