Fall and winter baking can get a little too serious at times. There are pies to make and come the holidays, parties to host and sweets to tote. But when it comes right down to it, for so many of us, baking is a way to relieve stress and put something together to give to others. So to take myself a little less seriously, I look to flippable desserts!
One of the most well-known flippable desserts is, of course, Apple Tarte Tatin. It's a goeey upside-down apple cake that's actually relatively easy although it gets a reputation as being difficult because of the small chance it could fall apart upon flipping. To solve this problem Gilt Taste writer Whitney Chen says, "You must flip with conviction. If you hesitate, the tarte will sense your trepidation and become a sloppy heap of apples and crust." So this fall, go forth with butter, sugar and conviction ... and flip away!
