RECIPE | Apple Tarte Tatin

Do I have treat for you today! Quick to make, easy, and most of all tasty! that will be the best way to describe today's tarte tatin recipe!

For those of you that don't know what a tarte tatin is: it's an upside-down tart! My apple version sounds a lot like a regular apple pie, but because of the upside-down technique, the apples have a more moist and sweeter taste.

Here's how: Enjoy!

For the dough
50 g butter
50 g powdered sugar
150 g flour
1 egg

For the apples
100 g butter
100 g sugar
4 apples
1 tblsp cinnamon

- Preheat the oven to 220 degrees
- Mix the ingredients for the dough together. Knead the dough with your hands and form a ball.
- Place the dough ball in the fridge for 20 to 30 minutes

- Peel the apples and remove the cores. Slice them into 8 wedges per apple
- Put the sugar into a pan and place it on a medium heat. Keep stirring the sugar until it has caramelized, add the butter and keep stirring.
- Pour the sugar and butter mixture into the springvorm. 
- Place the apple parts on top of the sugar and butter mixture. Make sure that you cover the whole area.

- Take the dough out of the fridge and use a rolling pin to make a round surface. place this over the apples in the springform. Use the leftover dough and this all around the springform.(see image)
- Place the springform in the oven for 30 minutes.

- Let the tarte tatin cool down for a few minutes.
- Place a serving platter upside down on top of the pastry and CAREFULLY flip the platter and the pan over. Let the tart fall gently out of the pan.

** It's even more delicious with some vanilla ice cream!

PERSONAL | Post Grad Syndrom

Wow, I can't believe it's been so long since my last post! I have been getting questions whether there was something wrong with the email subscriptions, because it has been "so quiet". Not to worry, there has been nothing wrong with that, I have just been taking a short break from, well, everything.


As you know I graduated this summer, and I have been very fortunate to get an amazing project to work on straight after my graduation(more about that later). It has been very busy, and I guess it was too busy to make me realize how different my life is going to be from now on. I have been in school for such a long time and I only now realize how much stability that gave me.
I took some time to just figure out what I want to do now. When you're in school you choose a program or course that suits you the most and you work as hard as you can to succeed in that. But what happens after you succeeded in school and graduated? 
I made the choice to study theatre design and I still love it! But I wouldn't be me if I didn't question everything:) So now that I have calmed down a bit after a few 'post-grauation-freakouts' moments, and took some time for myself I started to make lists again. Like how they teach you in school. Lists of dreams and goals, just to help me remind me of what makes me happy and what I would like to do next (eat cakes),  in stead of what I have to do (make money).


Reflecting can be very hard, and while you are in the reflection-mode it's not the best place to be in. But afterwards it always makes sense that you had to go trough that to realize what you really want. I am not there yet, because my lists seem to be getting a little bit too long;)  But I am getting there and I find myself being more calm and most of all: I feel like making things again, just because it's fun to do! (and not because I feel obligated to do so)

Now before I start to sound a little bit too much like a post-grad-self-help-book, I just want to say that I still love what I do and especially this blog and you! are making me a very happy person!xoxo Lana

I have been working on costumes and many more things for a wonderful theatre group the last few weeks. It has been a lot of fun, and we have now reached the point where it gets really really busy:) 

So for today: some rock tunes by Kate Nash to wake up and start working!
Have a lovely thursday!
