Apple and almonds tart
During winter time there is hardly any fruit in season but what many people always have in the house is the classic apple.I think apples are the best fruit for cake making. They are so versatile and delicious and can be used in many types of cakes and also in savoury dishes too.Over the last weekend I had some friends around and I wanted a cake to go with our afternoon tea.This tart went down very well: simple and light. I added a handful of sliced almonds to the topping which gave it a crunchy bite + it added to the flavour too.You know that in order to make a good shortcrust pastry you need to work your ingredients very quickly to avoid overheating the pastry. And to do so it will help to mix up the ingredients with a fork first and to use your hands only in the end to combine them together and turn them into a ball.
