Gluten Free Apple Tart
This gluten-free apple tart is made with a brown sugar shortcrust pastry and a tart bramley apple filling. Top with some maple whipped cream.
So for the Irish recipe post I’ve opted to make a gluten-free apple tart.
What’s so Irish about apple tart? I don’t know but it’s a staple dessert here.
My granny used to make one every day. Every day.
Is this her recipe? No. 1) She didn’t have a gluten-free diet and 2) She didn’t use recipes. She just would make things. And they all tasted great.
I love apple tart but it’s not something I make. Well, I guess now it is. But you can often buy good apple tarts in the supermarkets.
I’m mentioning this for a very specific reason.
A few years ago Aldi used to sell a gluten-free apple tart, and also a gf blackberry and apple tart. They were so good! They were so good. And then they just stopped selling them.
If they were still selling them I would not be posting this recipe now because I would just be buying those tarts instead.
Don’t you hate that when you find something that’s just right. And then they stopped selling it. Why? I’d like to know whay. I always want to know why. Was there something wrong with it? Something completely undetectable?
Have I ever mentioned Sara Lee’s Pecan Pie? Oh yeah, I have…
Well, anyway it would be lovely if one of the supermarkets would sell a really good gluten-free apple tart again.
Wait, I could just make this one though.
What’s this gluten-free apple tart like?
It’s good. Particularly with a dollop of cream. Particularly when you whip a little maple syrup into the cream. The apple in this is a bit more tangy than sweet. Because that’s how I like it. But with some maple whipped cream… It’s really good!
What’s there to see and do in Ireland?
What? Where did that question come from??
Oh yes, that’s the way I’m doing these posts…
There is lots to do on this little green isle. But don’t take my word for it. Let’s get some lists:
- 20 most beautiful places to see in Ireland. There are places I’d like to add to that list – but I’ll be here all evening going on about such and such a place if I do that.
- 10 best activity holidays in Ireland. OK I am going to add a couple of things to that – there are lots of places to surf in Ireland, or you could go caving, and there are lots of places to practice your golf.
- We do like a bit of hooley of this country. There are lots of festivals throughout the year. Well during a normally year. And particularly during the summer months. I couldn’t find a really comprehensive list – but this one is pretty good.
And for the foodies?
- Well, I’m not actually a foodie so I couldn’t advise you – but here’s 100 of the best restaurants, cafés and places to eat in 2020.
What’s it like for coeliacs and the gluten intolerant?
I live here so I’m going to find it easy to navigate.
Let’s see if I can find some more reputable source to guide you. Yes, Ireland is a place that is easy to manage as a coeliac.
But enough of all that, let’s make a tart to have with our tea.
