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

Recipe Category: Dessert


  • 1 vanilla pod
  • 300 g fructose
  • 3 large eggs
  • zest of 2 lemons
  • 150 mls milk
  • 110 g butter melted
  • 100 g ground almonds
  • 90 g cake flour
  • 10 mls baking powder
  • 3 Granny Smith apples, peeled, cored and cut into slices
  • caster sugar for dusting
  • ground cinnamon for dusting
  • whipped cream for serving


  • preheat the oven to 150° Celsius
  • 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)
  • halve the vanilla pod lengthwise, remove the seeds and discard the pod (put the pod into your sugar container to make vanilla sugar)
  • beat the caster sugar, vanilla seeds and eggs until light and fluffy
  • add the lemon zest, milk and butter
  • stir in the ground almonds, flour and baking powder
  • pour half the mixture into the tart dish
  • arrange half the apple slices on top and dust with caster sugar
  • pour the remaining mixture over the apple slices
  • arrange the remaining slices on top and dust with caster sugar and cinnamon
  • bake for 55-60 minutes and then leave to cool


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.
