Almost too pretty to eat. We said ALMOST.

Banana Tarte Tatin

serving time1 x 23cm tart


  • 120g caster sugar

  • 110g butter, cut into cubes

  • 25ml dark rum

  • Pinch cinnamon

  • 4-5 bananas

  • pinch of sea salt

  • 500g pack ready-rolled all-butter puff pastry


  1. Heat oven to 200 C / 180 C fan.

  2. Melt the sugar, butter and rum together in a 23cm cast iron pan over a low heat, stirring until the sugar has melted. Turn up the heat and bubble the mixture until it turns a golden caramel colour, then remove from the heat and stir in the cinnamon.

  3. Slice the bananas into 2cm-thick pieces and arrange them in concentric circles in the pan.

  4. Cut the pastry into a circle 3cm larger than the skillet. Lay the pastry on top of the bananas and tuck the edges down inside the tin. Bake in the oven for 25-30 mins until the pastry is risen and cooked through.

  5. Leave the tart to cool in the tin for 5 mins, then carefully turn the tart out onto a large plate. Wait a further 5 minutes before slicing and serving.
