Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 40 minutes
Course Sweet
Servings 8


  • 8 Braeburn Apples
  • 200 g Golden Caster Sugar
  • 50 ml Water
  • 85 g Unsalted Butter
  • 375 g Ready- Rolled Puff Pastry
  • ½ tsp Kosher Salt
  • Flour for dusting


  • Preheat oven to 180°C
  • Peel, core and halve the Apples.
  • Using an 8” ovenproof frying pan, melt the sugar with the water slowly over a low heat.
  • Once the sugar has melted, turn up the heat and let bubble for 5 minutes or until the caramel turns golden (don’t let it get too dark).
  • Take the caramel off the heat and stir in the butter – it will foam vigorously.
  • Sprinkle in the salt and arrange the apple halves on top, cut side upwards.
  • Put the pan back on a gentle heat and cook for 5 minutes more. Then turn the heat off and let the apples cool completely.
  • On a floured surface roll out the pastry to about 3mm thick, then lay it over the top of the cooled apples in the pan.
  • Trim the pastry, using the edge of the pan as a guide, then tuck the edge down around the apples, being careful not to move them.
  • Bake in the oven for 30 minutes or until the pastry is dark golden and puffed.
  • Remove from oven, stand for 5 minutes, then carefully turn over the pan/tart onto a serving plate.
