Dutch Apple Tart (Appeltaart)

Dutch apple tart is delicious. I’ve you’ve ever been to the Netherlands, you’ve probably had it – it is sold everywhere: cafes, department stores, restaurants, pubs. Call it our national cake, if you will. You grow up with it – it’s just always there.

 

It consists out of a sweet shortcrust pastry, filled with chunks of apples and raisins, flavoured with lots of cinnamon. It’s not difficult to make, only fairly time consuming considering you need to peel a whole load of apples. It’s definitely worth it, though. This cake is delicious, and it looks super impressive once finished. It’s a great cake to make one or two days ahead of time, and take with you as a gift.
