Caramelised Apple Tart

This delicious caramelised apple dessert is better known in France as a Tarte Paysanne aux Pommes Caramélisées or Peasant Tart. It is very similar to a claflouti and is so inexpensive, quick and easy to make. Big dollops of fresh whipped cream spooned on top and you are good to go.
