Apple tart with Licor 43

Fine apple pie with liqueur

(Post contains advertising) Today I have an incredibly delicious apple tart in my luggage for you. A particularly juicy apple cake with a base of tender almond shortcrust pastry. This fruity tart is particularly delicious with my beloved Licor 43. The Spanish liqueur gives this cake a particularly tasty note! 

Apple tart with a splash

Anyone who knows me and my blog knows that a generous dash of liqueur is not only found in my cake recipes. I especially like it Licor 43 impressed with its special, complex aromas. In terms of taste, it goes perfectly with sweet delicacies with its notes of Mediterranean citrus fruits, spices and vanilla. It is practically one of my favorite secret ingredients and a real all-rounder, whether for baking, cooking or drinking. Here is a small selection of my favorite recipes with it:

Autumn time is apple pie time

Autumn time is apple pie time, although every form of apple pie is in season for me all year round. This apple tart with Licor 43 is of course not only suitable for autumn. But that is precisely where apples are in high season, of course. Now I'm pretty late for my apple pie this year. Many are already planning their Christmas bakery or have even started doing it. So my tip: With a little cinnamon or spiced biscuits in the shortcrust pastry, this tart can easily be breathed a little Christmassy charm.

The preparation is easy

The preparation is very easy, by the way. The shortcrust pastry only needs to be kneaded briefly and, if desired, can be prepared the day before and then stored in the refrigerator. The dough is then distributed in a tart pan and does not even have to be rolled out. I just press the dough into shape with my hands. It couldn't be easier! Apples cut into fine slices are then spread on the dough. Now all you need to do is stir the deliciously delicious filling and pour it over it. It's already going in the oven. Then add the apricot to round it off and the tart is ready. It tastes incredibly delicious and nobody will notice how easy it actually is to prepare. When preparing it, don't forget to try a sip of liqueur 😉. Now you already know the secret of how good recipes are made with me. (No, of course that's fun!)

A liqueur with tradition

By the way, Licor 43 is based on a secret recipe that has been handed down from generation to generation for centuries. The recipe is said to have its origin even in antiquity with the ancient Romans. The liqueur has been made in Cartagena since the 1930s and is the most popular Spanish liqueur in the world. The recipe is said to be based on 43 ingredients and thus coined the name. Particular care is taken to extract the complex aromas from ingredients such as vanilla and orange blossom as well as a mixture of alcohol, water and fruit juices and then distilled several times until the liqueur has its typical bright yellow color and its complex, fruity-aromatic taste. Whether pure on ice, with milk, which is popular in this country, or in other creations: Licor 43 is a real pleasure and I will certainly create many more recipes with it.

My conclusion

My family was so enthusiastic about the apple tart that I have been asked several times when I would bake this tart again and had to promise to make it again very soon! This is one of those cakes that can't be left standing around in the kitchen, otherwise it'll be gone faster than you can look. So delicious! But now it's your turn first: Have fun baking and enjoying!

    1. Yes, that is possible, but the ground will become soft over time! In any case, you should be careful not to let the soil get too thin. The apples are already juicy. LG Sonja

    Today I baked this delicious tart and we like it very much. Only the shortcrust pastry is very thin and I have the feeling that it is soaked. Was the filling too much?
    . But I followed the recipe exactly.

    1. Dear Roswitha,

      maybe your apples were particularly juicy. The soil does a little soak. It should therefore not be rolled out too thinly on the floor.
      But they look very good! 🙂

      Many greetings,
