My mother used to make this all the time, usually to go with Sunday dinner. I was hooked. Haven't had it in ages and I was wanting to bake something special for a special someone so I asked mum for the recipe. Tried it out today, and it's just as I remember. The thing that makes it for me is the frangipane. Hope you like it as much as me.

A fabulous tarte tatin with gorgeously tender and buttery pastry laid over a bed of caramelised apples, then flipped over after baking. You can use brown sugar, golden caster sugar or regular granulated sugar for this recipe.

There's nothing more classic than a homemade apple tart. I like to serve it with a scoop of caramel ice cream.

I always have shortcrust pastry in my freezer. I use a mandoline to slice the apples, so that they are very thin and become soft when baked.

In this apple frangipane tart, thinly sliced apples are paired with a glorious almond filling. An easy and impressive tart!

Go for this French apple tart with a classic look, with the apple slices arranged in a spiral pattern on top of the buttery pastry. This apple tart is also nut free.

Home-grown apples are one of the great pleasures of autumn. use them to make everyone's favourite upside-down apple tart.

For this classic French up-side down apple tart, use a tin that can be placed both on the cooker and in the oven. You can also use a ready made caramel sauce but I think it's more satisfying to make your own!

This apple tart, known as pompe aux pommes, is made of apple slices, lightly sweetened and completely encased in shortcrust pastry.

This is a quick but delicious version of an apple pie. Don't try to roll the pastry into a perfect circle - it's supposed to have a rustic look.
