    no mention of when to add the 40gms plain flour. i have made the tart anyway and added the flour after the sugar, and i put the sliced apples in the bottom and then the liquid and the apples float to the top. turned out very well.  -  04 Sep 2011


    It's really easy to make and quick. The flavour is great and I'll definitely make it again. Next time I'll probably use less milk as it could do with being a bit firmer. It's tricky to brush on the redcurrant while the apple slices are swimming in the mixture so I think I'll do what Yumyums suggested and pour the liquid over and omit the redcurrant. I'd also like to try this with apricot instead of apple. Really delicious warm or cold. A big hit with the family.  -  05 Mar 2017
