Today’s inspirational recipe from Lavender and Lime ♥ Peach Tarte Tatin ♥ #LavenderAndLime Share on X

In my first attempt at making a tatin I went with the traditional apple tarte tatin and even though it sort of worked, it did not come out of the dish I baked it in as easily as it should. There were a lot of obstacles in my way – the first being that the base of my tagine is too deep, and the other is that it does not have handles! I decided to buy myself a Le Creuset Tatin Dish, and then I had to decide which tatin I was going to make as the first one to ‘christen’ it. At the time of getting the dish, doughnut peaches were in season. I had already made a dessert with these peaches and I knew they could hold up in a tatin. The dish is perfect and if you are going to make tarts then I can highly recommend that you get yourself one. It is an investment you will not regret. The dish is the perfect depth for a decent tart, and the handles make it easy to turn your tarts over. More than this, you can bake cakes in the dish and so it has a diversity of uses meaning you don’t need a whole stack of cake tins in your cupboard. You can also use this dish to make quiches and as it is so beautiful, you can take it straight to the table for serving.

  1. Ive got one of these and have never regretted the initial outlay.

    I make the Apple Tarte Tatin and add almonds, raisins and a little brandy, its always a winner. Im going to try the peach one now, thanks.

  2. I made my first tart a few weeks ago, and will have to try peaches, especially as they are in season.

  3. Seems I might be spending more money than intended when I get home!
    Your tarte looks fabulous – I love recipes with few ingredients that produce such a wonderful result.

  4. I have been eyeing that Le Creuset piece of genius for a while – thanks for justifying the purchase for me!
