Apple filo tart

Not only is this apple tart pretty, it’s also not that naughty (relatively speaking)!

As much as I enjoyed my Bake Off inspired blog posts last year, and even though I’m inspired by this year’s show, I made the difficult decision not to take part in the #bloggerbakeoff. I decided to prioritise healthy eating August instead, but that doesn’t mean I don’t need some tasty treats every now and again (especially when the Great British Bake Off is actually on). And because this tart uses filo pastry and 1 Cal spray oil it keeps the calories lower than a regular tart, so it’s the perfect Bake Off companion. Plus, it’s so quick and simple to make!

What I used:

  • 2 sheets of filo pastry
  • 2 apples (peeled and cored)
  • 1 Cal spray oil (sunflower)
  • Flaked almonds
  • A sprinkle of Demerara sugar
  • A sprinkle of ground cinnamon
  • Icing sugar

The method:

  1. Cut both sheets of filo pastry in half. Lay one piece of pastry out onto a baking tray lined in baking paper. Spray a mist of the spray oil over it, and then lay a second piece of pastry on top. Repeat until all 4 pieces are laid on top of each other. Spray a final mist of oil on the top sheet.
  2. Lay the apple pieces across the top of the pastry, but leave a little space around the outside edge of the pastry for it to get crispy, golden and flaky.
  3. Sprinkle the top with Demerara sugar, cinnamon and a handful of flaked almonds.
  4. Place in the oven at 190°C for 20 minutes (or until the pastry edges are crispy and the fruit is soft and golden.
  5. Leave to cool and then dust with icing sugar.

Then serve with a small scoop of low fat crème fraîche and an episode of the Great British Bake Off!
