Bavarian Apple Torte for #SundaySupper

Sep 23, 2012 by

Sunday Supper!!! I’m so glad to be participating again! Sunday Supper has got to be one of my most favourite communities. There’s a lot of fun and support amongst the members behind the scenes. Each Sunday has a unique theme and sometimes, a member gets to host! Don’t miss out on the Twitter chat at 7PM EST. Recipes and ideas are shared all day long, so feel free to jump in at any time using the hashtag #SundaySupper.

Today’s theme is “Autumn Apple Party” where we use wonderful crispy apples as an ingredient in our meal creations. My choice is Bavarian Apple Torte! I made this lovely dessert last year and I was very happy to re-visit the recipe as it was greatly enjoyed. I came across this recipe via Laura Calder’s whose version was titled Easy Pastry Shop Apple Tart. It was super easy and super tasty so here I go again! We have such a talented bunch of contributors this week (and every week)! So many awesome apple recipes to drool over!

Let’s start with mine! Oh so good…such sticky caramelization of the apples on top… I used Gala apples. They are my absolute favourite to bake with.

A simple tart made with royal gala apples and cream cheese
  • Tart Shell:
  • 1/2 Cup Butter
  • 1/3 Cup Sugar
  • 1 Tsp Vanilla
  • 1 Cup Unbleached Flour
  • Cream Filling:
  • 1 Egg
  • 1 Tsp Vanilla
  • 8oz Cream Cheese, Softened
  • 1/4 Cup Granulated Sugar
  • Topping
  • 3 Royal Gala Apples, peeled and thinly sliced
  • 1/4 Cup Granulated Sugar
  • 1/2 Tsp Cinnamon
  • 1/4 Cup Slivered Almonds
  1. Preheat oven to 400F
  2. Tart Shell:
  3. Cream the butter and sugar. Add vanilla and combine. Add flour and mix until a smooth dough is achieved. Press into the bottom of a pie-dish or an 8-inch spring form pan lined with parchment paper. Give the edges about an inch in height. Bake for 15 minutes and remove from oven.
  4. Cream Filing:
  5. Beat egg, vanilla, cream cheese and filling until smooth. Pour on top of the tart shell.
  6. Topping: In a small bowl, add cinnamon, sugar and almonds. Add apple slices and toss so that the apples are nicely coated. Arrange the slices in top of the cream cheese filling in a circular fashion. Spread any remaining almond/cinnamon/sugar mixture over the apples slices.
  7. Bake until the apples are tender and golden for about 40 minutes


Royal Gala Apples


I tossed the apple slices in batches and it just so happened that I had a few slices left over to munch on while waiting for this little tart to bake. The almonds are totally optional. I didn’t mind the extra crunch to this very special dessert.

As with all baked apple dishes, your kitchen will smell wonderful. I couldn’t wait to dive into this apple torte. My husband loved it! I think he exhibited great self-control when I asked him to wait a few minutes while I took some photographs. Bless his patient little heart!!! :-)
