Recipe for family meals :

Apple Plate Tart

It is many years since Hub-UK was first launched. It has been created from recipes contributed form all over the world, from professionals and amateurs alike. A great many of the recipes do not have any details as to who sent them in or from where they came. It would be a shame not to share them with you for this reason alone.

This Welsh recipe is one such recipe. If you know where it originated, or perhaps it is even yours, let me know and I will add the necessary credits and acknowledgements.

"The most indispensable ingredient of all good home cooking - love, for those you are cooking for" ~ Sophia Loren.


1 lb apples, sliced
4 oz sugar
1 x water

8 oz flour
4 oz fat
1 oz sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
1 x pinch mixed spice
1 x water


  • Line a plate with half the pastry.
  • Fill with fruit, cover with sugar and add a little water.
  • Cover with the remaining pastry and bake for 45 minutes at Gas Mark 6 / 400°F for 20 minutes, then reduce heat to Gas Mark 4 / 350°F.
  • All kinds of plate tarts with pastry top and bottom are popular in Wales such as rhubarb, plums, gooseberries or mixtures of any kinds of fruits in season can be used.
