Banana Tarte Tatin 2019

Almost too pretty to eat. We said ALMOST.

Ingredients

  • 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

Steps

  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.
