TWD - Caramel Tart



It's Tuesday with Dorie, and this month, for my first recipe, I chose the Caramel Tart.  It's basically a caramel custard baked inside Dorie's sweet shortcrust pastry.

Yeah nah - mine doesn't look anything like the pretty food stylist's photograph on the Web:



When I re-read the recipe, I realised that the two separate layers resulted from leaving the foam on the filling of the tart.  Despite my tart being somewhat of an ugly duckling, it tasted good.  I liked it slightly warm, and it was even better when I did what I was told and allowed it to chill completely.



To see what the other Dorie bakers made this week and what they thought, visit the LYL section of the TWD website.

Caramel did it for me! It sounds delicious and pass it this way, please!

That looks so good I would find it hard to let it cool completely before eating

It still sounds delicious! I wonder if you strained it through a fine sieve that might get rid of the foam? They should tell you that in the recipe though!

Taste always counts! Anything caramel has to be a winner in my book.

I noted the bit about the foam in the recipe right away - but I think yours looks pretty too! I can't wait to make this!

The layer effect of the caramel tart looks charming to me. Taste is everything.

Mine sort of looked like that too. I managed to crop my picture to avoid some of the frothy party. It was delicious though.

I actually saw the note about skimming the foam and chose to ignore it. It was such a delicious tart, it didn't matter how it looked in the end.

Kari said...

Sometimes ugly duckling results taste the best - although I think this looks good anyway!
