Classic tarte tatin with rhubarb is the easiest and most delicious dessert of the season. You will just need a few ingredients, 4 actually and 30 minutes.

The key for this colourful dessert is an skillet or a pan than can go into the oven, I use this lodge skillet and I love it.

Arrange the rhubarb: You can get creative and make a nice shape as I did or keep it simple and just line up the rhubarb. Up to you 🙂

If you want to create a similar shape to the one I need you just need to cut the rhubarb into 2-3 cm pieces diagonally. Then simply copy the shape on the photo.

You can just serve the tarte tatin as it is or with some vanilla ice cream on top, so so good!
