Making cherry tarte tatin with marzipan flavor

Today we are making cherry tarte tatin. I’d love to add a cherry tarte tatin to this site’s collection. Tarte tatin should not be confused with charlotte. The flavor of this tart is extraordinary!

You should chill it in the refrigerator before serving. Then the tart will be easier to cut in portions, the cherry and marzipan flavors will infuse, and you’ll feel the chocolate pieces in the dough.

Sweet eaters should add more sugar to the batter, but caramel, marzipan and chocolate in the filling also add sweetness, remember that. The juicy sweet and sour cherries of the blackcurrant variety not only embellish the tart, but also go well with the flavorful pastry crust.

In short, I think I convinced you to definitely bake a tart shifter, you can use any fruit. Summer is the perfect time for such tarts. Bon appetit!
