Tarte Normande (Normandy Tart)
This classic French dessert is a cross between an apple tart and an egg custard. Serve cold or warm with cream or ice cream.

  • 250 g (8 oz) shortcrust pastry
  • 3 large apples, e.g. Golden Delicious
  • 125 ml (4 fl oz) milk
  • 100 g (3½ oz) crème fraiche or thick cream
  • 60 g (2 oz) caster or superfine sugar
  • 50 g (2 oz) ground almonds
  • 25 g (1 oz) sliced almonds
  • 2 eggs
  1. Line an 8″ (20 cm) flan tray with the pastry.
  2. Peel, core and slice the apples into wedges. Each apple should yield about 15-16 wedges. Arrange the apples in the flan dish.
  3. Beat the eggs in a bowl. Beat in the sugar, then the milk, and finally beat in the ground almonds and the crème fraiche.
  4. Pour the mixture over the apples. Sprinkle with the sliced almonds and bake at 200°C for about 25 minutes.
Titli's Tips
I use a thin metal flan tray for this dish, but if you use a ceramic flan dish it is probably better to blind bake the pastry first before adding the apples.
