Easy Apple & Marzipan Tart

We’ve been posting recipes on the blog, ideal for lockdown that are easy and cheap to make, boredom busters, entertainment for the kids, homemade and yummy. This time, credit goes to the fabulous James Martin and Stellar: not only are the Stellar James Martin baking tins amazing (a bit about them later) but they come with a recipe. This is one of them and boy is this gorgeous on the old taste buds - we just had to share! (warning: it's sweet and naughty!)

So here we go with this super divine Easy Apple & Marzipan Tart...

  1. Preheat the oven to 200°C / Gas Mark 6 and lightly grease a baking sheet if not using ready rolled pastry.
  2. If using a block of pastry, lightly flour a work surface and roll it out to make a large rectangle then place onto the baking sheet. If using ready rolled pastry, just unroll and place on the baking sheet (leave the pastry on the baking paper that it comes with).
  3. Either way, prick the pastry all over with a fork then dust with icing sugar.
  4. Thinly slice the marzipan and place, evenly spaced, onto the pastry.
  5. Core and thinly slice the apples, and place the slices on top, evenly spaced.
  6. Bake for 10-15 minutes until golden brown and crisp around the edges - keep checking that it’s not burning.

8. Serve the tart with some of the sauce and vanilla ice-cream - very naughty but VERY nice!

 How easy was that for something so divine?!

So I mentioned the Stellar James Martin baking tins earlier… wow, they’re good! I absolutely love the double layer non-stick surfaces; makes cleaning super easy (they’re even dishwasher safe although I prefer to wash by hand)! They’re made from heavy grade carbon steel for even heat distribution, and are suitable for the oven upto 210°C. I absolutely love these - check them out by clicking here.
