Fig and Apple Tart Tartin

A delicious twist on the traditional Tart Tartin with the addition of figs and a hint of cardamom
Servings: 4 servings
Prep Time15 mins
Cook Time20 mins
Total Time35 mins


  • 75g/3oz butter
  • 75g/3oz cardamom sugar
  • 2 figs, - halved
  • 2 dessert apples, - peeled, cored, halved
  • 1 packet ready rolled puff pastry
  • whipped cream to serve


  • Preheat the oven to 220C / 425F / GM7. Butter a 8? tarte tartin pan or oven proof frying pan well and place a circle of greaseproof paper in it.
  • Add the butter and sugar to a pan and heat slowly on the hob until the butter is melted, continue to heat, stirring, until the sugar is melted and the mixture is golden brown with large bubbles – when it is ready the size of the bubbles will suddenly increase. This will take about 5 minutes.
  • Place the figs (cut side down) and apples (core side up) into the pan and allow to cook for about 5 minutes. Keep a careful eye on it so the caramel does not burn.
  • Arrange the fruit in the Tarte Tartin or oven proof frying pan and pour the reminder of the caramel over.
  • Cut a circle of puff pastry slightly larger than the diameter of the pan. Place over the fruit and caramel mixture, tucking the edges in.
  • Place into the pre heated oven and bake for about 20 – 25 minutes until puffed and golden. (photo below)
  • Allow to cool for a few minutes, place a serving plate over the pan and flip. Shake and the Tarte Tartin should drop out. Remove the pan and peel the sheet of greaseproof paper away if needed.
  • Serve warm with whipped cream.
