Toffee Apple Tart

Toffee Apple Tart

So to kick off The Pink Whisk October Challenge here’s my apple recipe for Toffee Apple Tart.



150g plain flour

65g butter, cold

25g caster sugar

1 tsp vanilla bean paste

enough water to combine (2 -3 tablespoons)


70g fresh breadcrumbs (about 2 slices of fresh bread, blitzed)

1/2 tsp cinnamon

2-3 large apples

(unpeeled my apples weigh about 550g, you will need enough apple that when peeled, cored and diced will cover the top of your tart case.

The Pink Whisk Challenge – October

The Pink Whisk Challenge

October sees the start of a new monthly Pink Whisk baking challenge – there’s so many lovely recipes and lots of great baking out there I thought it was time you shared it with me (you could win yourself a great prize too – but more on that in a minute!)

At the start of each month I will set a baking challenge based around a seasonal ingredient, and also reserve the right to throw in something random occasionally too (probably glitter!)

October’s challenge is Apples – still bountiful at this time of year and I’m always looking for great recipes to use them up.
