Oat, hazelnut and apple tarts

Oat, hazelnut and apple tarts. Simple cuisine is the one that has the most impact on me in the long run. Sometimes I let myself be seduced by more elaborate proposals, by what they call “trends”: I had the phase of macarons (sweet and savory) and that of remind Sicilian, passing through the Neapolitan babà and the diplomatic.
In the end, however, I always return home and to a kitchen made with few ingredients. Sideboard cakes are one of my longest-lasting passions. It will be that they are so “cake of the house” which is the name I gave to this blog but it is precisely the desserts that represent me the most. If I listened to the urge I would prepare one every weekend but at the moment it is better to limit yourself a little with sugar and butter.

These simple ones Oatmeal cupcakes they are a reworking of the “four-quarter cake” in miniature format, prepared to allow the hazelnut flour to settle before the heat arrives. They are really simple to make and the apples can be replaced with other seasonal fruit: oranges or pears, for example.

The doses I used are just right for 6 small sweets, if you wanted to make a cake I would say to double everything for a 20 centimeter cake tin. But the single-portion version is super comfortable 😉
