Hi peeps! You know I bought a whole lot of stuff from Singapore, and one of them is this rectangular tart pans. I have been looking at this in Donna's magazines and Martha's tart book for a while. And I have almost ordered this online! So, I got 2 of the pans from Sun Lik, kept one and the other one I gave away to my sugarpaste teacher....I wanted to get a few more to give away, but they have run out of stock, ah well next time!
So, I made this delicious crumble tart. I first saw this in Rima's blog and while I was in Singapore Rima made this for an order. It's simple to make with all the ingredients that almost always are present in all out kitchens...I'm asking you to make this tomorrow, you see!
40g caster sugar
1/4 tsp salt
120g butter, from the fridge and chopped
5 green apples, I used Granny Smith, peeled , cored and sliced
2 tbsp butter
1/2 tsp cinnamon powder
2 tbsp plain flour
150g plain flour
1/4 tsp salt
Using my hands, I mixed the sugar, salt and flour together. Rub butter with this flour mixture until they resemble bread crumbs, add yolk and lighly knead. Please do not overwork the batter, we are not making roti canai here, ya! Then, I pressed the dough into the tart pan...leanrt this from Saf...and don't worry if they look like they were going to fall apart when baked, they won't! Chill for 30 mins, set your oven at 180C.
In a large bowl mix all the ingredients together, set aside.
Mix flour, sugar and salt together. Add the chopped butter and rub with the flour mixture until they resemble crumbs.
Spread the filling mixture in the tart pan, and spread the crumble on top. Bake for about 30 minutes or when you see bubbles coming out from the crumble or the sides of the pan.
Hajar had a portion that I placed in ramekins last night, and I had mine for breakfast this morning. It was absolutely divine, I loved it! Tqs Rima for this recipe!
...and here's some bakes that I made on the last week of December. Tqs beautiful people who have ordered, I couldn't find my 2011 diary with jottings so, I couldn't remember who they were, sorry!
We will be going back to Ayer Baloi this weekend...enjoy your short break, Happy Chinese New Year! Year of the dragon, and we will all be a lot of luck (coupled with hard work!) this year! Inshaallah!
