    Turn off the heat and remove the apples to a bowl. Pour the cream into the pan then, holding a sieve over the pan, strain in any juices from the apples. Gradually whisk the caramel sauce into the beaten yolks. Arrange the apples over the base of the tart, pour over the custard, then bake for 40 mins until the custard is just set. Leave the tart to cool, then use a knife to cut away the spare pastry and neaten the edges. Love the new look or think we’ve missed the mark?

    The first time I made this I needed to make a double batch of custard as my apple layers weren t sufficient. What’s in Your Fridge?
