Walking through your local supermarket, you may find it difficult not to be distracted by shelves stacked high with mouthwatering chocolate eggs. All the streets around you are alive with colourful and fascinating decorations. You can actually feel that Easter is fast approaching.
Easter is considered to be one of the major Christian celebrations of the year, a holiday that is full of customs, folklore and traditional food. Because it was decided long time ago that Easter Day will always be on the Sunday following the first full moon after the first day of spring, it is considered that Easter represents a symbol of spring and new life. As a result, it is named after the Anglo-Saxon goddess of spring - Eostre.
Certainly, Easter should not be an excuse to make indulgent food choices. However, if you are conscious about your weight, you may feel as though this period is a challenging time. In order to curb your cravings, you can create tasty treats that are also healthy. Try our delicious Easter recipe that is flavourful, healthy and easy to make:
Upside-Down Apple Tart
All you need is simple ingredients that can be found in all popular supermarkets and online grocery stores:
Start by preheating your oven to 200° C - 400° F, gas mark 5. In the meantime, peel, core and quarter the apples and cook them gently in a pan, with a little olive oil, for 10 minutes. Stir constantly, sprinkle the apples with ¾ of the fructose and allow them to get slightly caramelised.
After that, gently oil a cake mould and lay out the apple quarters on the bottom of the mould. Separately, put the eggs and the yolk into a bowl, add the rest of the fructose and beat everything together. At the end, add the almond powder to the mixture.
The mixture is now ready to be poured onto the apples. Place the tart into the oven and cook for 12 to 15 minutes. When it is ready, remove the tart from the oven and allow to cool for 20 minutes.
In order to actually have an upside-down tart, turn the mould over onto a large plate and leave the mould on the top for at least 30 minutes. Then, once cool, take the tart out of the mould just before serving.
That is it! You now have a healthy, tasty dessert that will make this Easter a very special one. Enjoy!
