This recipe is a quick and simple tart suggestion for Debra at Hapabento who loves her violet Sweet Potatoes and might one day foind herself in a hurry!

Beni Imo to Ringo no Tart /Violet Sweet Potato & Apple Tart


-Frozen Pastry: 2 sheets
-Beni Imo/Violet Sweet Potato: 3 small
-Apple: 1/4~1/2
-Dry raisins: as appropriate
-Eggs: 2
-Fresh cream: 100 cc/ml/1/2 cup
-Sugar: 100 g
-Cinnamon powder: as appropriate


-Line a tart mold with the two frozen pie sheets one on top of the other. Fill the middle with weighted beans (used for cooking), leaving only a two-finger rim free. Dry bake for 20 minutes at 230 degrees Celsius.

-While the pie sheets are baking, peel the sweet potatato and cut them into thin strips. Wash the potatoes and drain. Wrap them in aluminum paper and steam for 25 minutes.

-Take the baked pie sheet out. Discard the weighted beans. Cutthe apple into thin strips like the potatoes. Fill the pie sheets with sweet potatoes, apples, and raisins.

-In a bowl, mix the eggs, sugar, fresh cream and cinnamon powder.
Pour over the tart. Bake for 40 minutes at 210 degrees Celsius.

  1. Oh oh…. did I ever mention to you that I have a notorious “fear of dough”? 🙂 Well it’s more like “fear of failure using dough”. Haha! But since this is the frozen kind, I will have to give it a go!
