Apple & Cinnamon Sugar Tarte Flambee Sucree

Apple & Cinnamon Sugar Tarte Flambee Sucree

This tarte flambée is a delicious dessert that you can enjoy it on its own, any time of day. The Granny Smith apples used are not too sweet, so this tart has just the right balance of sweetness from the cinnamon sugar and tartness from the apples. The best part about cooking with fruit is that you have so many choices – if you prefer your tart a little sweeter, use a sweeter variety of apples!

Preparation and Cooking Time: 90 minutes

Serves: 6


  • 160 ml warm water
  • 1 package (2 ½ tsp) active dry yeast
  • ½ tsp sugar
  • 315 grams bread flour, plus some more for dusting

  13. Arrange the thin apples slices evenly in a decorative pattern on top of the crème fraiche.
  14. In a small bowl, whisk the sugar with the cinnamon and then spread the cinnamon sugar evenly over the apple slices.
