Tart lining – sweet pastry:

  • 80g butter
  • 45g icing sugar (sieved)
  • 25g egg (1/2 large egg)
  • 125g cake flour
  • 1 pinch salt

Chocolate frangipane:

  • 100g castor sugar
  • 100g butter
  • 150g eggs (3 large eggs)
  • 40g flour
  • 200g LINDT EXCELLENCE Extra Creamy (chopped fine)
  • 100g ground almonds

Cinnamon Apples:

  • 2 Granny Smith apples
  • 25g castor sugar
  • 1g cinnamon powder
  • 10g lemon juice


Tart lining – sweet pastry:

Combine all ingredients in one to form a soft dough. Wrap and allow to chill in the fridge for one hour. Then roll to 5mm thickness and line a Le Creuset 16cm Signature Skillet, trimming off the edges neatly and level with the rim of the skillet.

Chocolate Frangipane:

Place all the ingredients, except the chocolate, into a bowl and beat until smooth. Then add in the chopped milk chocolate pieces. Place in the fridge to set slightly.

Cinnamon Apples:

Peel and core two medium Granny Smith apples. Cut into segments of eight and then toss in the sugar, cinnamon powder and a squeeze of lemon juice – set aside.

Assembly of the tart:

Spread the chocolate frangipane mixture evenly over the raw sweet pastry. Then place the apple wedges roughly over the top. Bake at 160°C for 25 minutes or until golden brown and the apples are cooked. Allow to cool at room temperature and then serve immediately with Chantilly cream.
