Recipe For Lemon And Vanilla Apple Tart

I decided to try a tart without a crust for the sweet tart challenge and so I made this lemon and vanilla apple tart.

Lemon and Vanilla Apple Tart
  • 1 vanilla pod I used 1 teaspoon of vanilla purée
  • 300g castor sugar - I used fructose
  • 3 large eggs
  • zest of 2 lemons
  • 150mls milk
  • 110g butter, melted
  • 100g ground almonds
  • 90g cake flour
  • 10mls baking powder
  • 3 Granny Smith apples, peeled, cored and cut into slices
  • caster sugar for dusting
  • ground cinnamon for dusting
  • whipped cream for serving
  1. preheat the oven to 150° Celsius
  2. grease a spring form tin (if you look closely at the photo you will see I lined the tin, but it is not easy to get the paper off so next time I will not line the tin)
  3. halve the vanilla pod lengthwise, remove the seeds and discard the pod (put the pod into your sugar container to make vanilla sugar)
  4. beat the caster sugar, vanilla seeds and eggs until light and fluffy
  5. add the lemon zest, milk and butter
  6. stir in the ground almonds, flour and baking powder
  7. pour half the mixture into the tart dish
  8. arrange half the apple slices on top and dust with caster sugar
  9. pour the remaining mixture over the apple slices
  10. arrange the remaining slices on top and dust with caster sugar and cinnamon
  11. bake for 55-60 minutes and then leave to cool
My Notes
unfortunately we had a power failure and I am not sure how long the tart baked for - the baking paper did not come off the tart easily!

  1. It looks good Tandy. I’ll have to let you down again this week, I’m home alone so the tart would be wasted.
