6 portions
  • 500 grams puff pastry
  • 5 apples
  • 100 grams sugar
  • 100 milliliters apple brandy calvados
  • 1 vanilla pods
  • 50 grams butter, in cubes
  • oven proof skillets


Preheat the oven to 190 degrees (375 F).
Put a little flour on a flat surface and spread the puff pastry. With a rolling pin, flatten the puff pastry until it is large enough to cover the entire pan. (You can cut the corners a bit so you do not over so much puff pastry).
Peel the apples. Cut in half horizontally and remove the seeds with a spoon to make fruit balls.
Put the sugar, Calvados, vanilla seeds and the vanilla pod in the pan over medium heat. Without stirring, let the sugar dissolve and cook until a light caramel forms.
Once the caramel has a brown color, add the apples. Stir everything carefully in the pan for 5 minutes until the apples begin to become soft. Add the butter in cubes and put the puff pastry on top. Carefully adjust the edges of the puff pastry so they do not come out of the pan. (It is recommended to use a wooden spoon to avoid burning).
Place the pan in the oven and cook for 25-30 minutes or until the puff pastry is browned. Remove from the oven and turn the cake over a plate. (Tip: if you have too much liquid, you can drain it before turning).
Let it cool for a few minutes and serve with ice cream of your liking.


Never try or touch hot candy because it can cause severe burns.
