Apple Tarte Tatin and I’m hot on wordpress!!!


Freshly Pressed - By LosAngelas


When I wake up in the morning I first check my blog, a sort of morning ritual I guess. When I looked this morning I was pleasantly surprised that I had a lot of views and a list of likes and comments! Then I found out that I had made it onto the Freshly Pressed page!! With my post on Dutch Flower Fields 

I was so excited, that I did not even go for my usual, extra 10 minutes snoozing, but got up immediately and when for a morning run – which 2 months ago I decided to do at least 6 mornings a week, but in the last couple of weeks it had decreased to twice a week and a lazy 15 minute run. – but my energy this morning was unstoppable!

my previous stats diminish by todays...

I had set myself a blog goal of reaching 1000 views a month, which twice I almost achieved, but with today alone 3700 this goal is out of the window…. but then again goals are set to be broken, right?? 🙂

And thank you everybody for visiting, supporting, liking & commenting!!

When my good friend girlie came over last week, we had already made plans to have a active day together. Before she arrived I felt like baking a simple apple Tarte Tatin, something sweet before before we would burn off the calories on our beach walk and hike somewhere. Coffee and apple tarte tatin made us comfortable, and the slightly rain convinced us to stay indoors and to open a bottle of wine and watch a movie instead. 🙂

No calories were burned, but this apple tarte tatin makes you not to worry about that.

This simple Tarte Tatin is a nice light little thing to bake; I have used a small 6 inch bake tin,   a little cake big enough for 2.

Further on you need: 1 firm sour apple, handful of raisins, cinnamon, 2 sheets of puff pastry, 3 TbS of sugar and a little bit of water.

Line the bake tin with baking paper, and butter the sides. Then peel the apple and cut it in to flat slices. Lay the slices in the the tin, sprinkle with raisins & cinnamon. Lay on another layer of apple slices, raisins & cinnamon. Next, boil the sugar with the water till the sugar has dissolved and the mixture has a thicker consistency (you will have a too much of this, but it’s easier to make a bit more then a tiny bit). Sprinkle a couple of tablespoons of sugar water over the apples. Butter one sheet of puff pastry then put second on top and roll till you have a nice thin pastry and cover the apples and tuck the pastry in the tin. Last, coat the pastry with sugar water.

Bake for about 20 minutes, check first if there is any excess water and drain it, the let the tarte cool down. Carefully flip the tin with and surprise you good friend or mother with this cute little pastry!

  1. I’m so happy for you! Love your pix of the tulip fields. This a site I will always remember fondly. 🙂

    • THANKS!!! 🙂 🙂 I have often wondered what it would be like, and I can tell you it’s crazy, literally! I’ve never had this many visits and comment/likes… It’s great, hope you will be on there too one day 🙂

  2. Oooh, nice! I love that the tarte is so thin too – tartes I’ve seen before seem to be quite thick and doughy. But I actually like the look of this one.
    Thanks! And congrats on the Freshly Pressed!

    • yes, it is indeed nice and light, because of the puff pastry, which I roll out to make it thinner. an easy and tasty little pastry.
      thank you for the freshly pressed! it is absolutely amazing!!

  4. Yay, congratulations!! I love it when stats explode :)) Hope you get a lot of new followers out of it who come back regularly 🙂

  5. Congrats on making it to Freshly Pressed, Angela >>> you certainly deserve it! Your blog is not really in the mainstream of blogs that I regularly look at – but for that reason I always enjoy reading it, and I do like your photography. So, >>>onwards and upwards – get to it! Adrian

  6. my blog also blew up a few weeks ago when I was freshly pressed. isn’t it crazy what a little exposure can do?!
    thank you for the sweetest comment on my blog. I like to think that I have a unique viewpoint and it’s wonderful to hear that you see it. I’ll definitely be stopping by your blog again!
