This apple tart is incredibly moist but dense because of all the applesauce made prior to baking it. The finished result might look uncooked but don't be fooled. All the apples packed into this breakfast treat provide a rich, gooey texture that is sure to please.
File this one in the bad picture category but do not mistake my amateur photography for bad food, this tart is delicious!
Homemade apple sauce starts this tart off right and a crumble topping of pecans and brown sugar end it on a sweet note.
