Financier apple-pear tart

Yesterday,we bought  some juicy fruits and of course I wanted to make a dessert with them! While I was thinking what kind of tart should I make,I remembered a Greek food magazine my mother left me months ago,with apple pies. This magazine has some great apple pies from around the world, so I made this one from France. Vive la France!

This tart is like tart tatin..very delicious,simple and moist!

Ingredients:

For the filling:

  • 3 big golden apples
  • 2 bosc pears
  • 100 gr. unsalted butter
  • 100 gr. brown sugar
  • pinch of cinnamon
  • juice from one lemon

For the Financier cake:

  • 100 gr. almond flour
  • 120 gr. brown sugar
  • 100 gr. GF all purpose flour
  • 8 egg whites
  • 1 tsp. GF baking powder
  • orange zest
  • 120 gr. unsalted butter,melted
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp. rum (optional)

For the garnish:

  • 100 gr. walnuts
  • 100 gr. hazelnuts,toasted
  • 30 ml. water

How to make it:

Preheat the oven at 350 F.

Take a 9 inch cake mold or a pan and grease it with a butter.

Sprinkle the brown sugar. Peel and cut the apples and pears about 1/2 inch thick. I add Bosc pears,because there are sweeter than the other pears. But you can put any kind you want.

In a medium bowl dissolve the cinnamon in the lemon juice and mix the fruits. Then spread them in the cake mold.

Make the cake: In a big bowl mix all the ingredients together except the butter. Whisk well,till the batter is smooth. In the end add the butter and pour it  into the cake mold.image

Bake for 30 minutes. When is done let it cool  first for 15-20 minutes.

Make the garnish: In a small sauce pan add the sugar and water. When it comes to a boil add the toasted hazelnuts  and walnuts. Mix well,in a medium heat,till the hazelnuts and walnuts caramelize.
