Banana Tarte Tatin

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by Aunty Dotty

Sounds like a nice variation on apple tarte tatin. Caramelized bananas and flaky puff pastry..can't be bad! From Gourmet Traveller Nov 06. ( To go with Nutmeg Icecream )

I made this for PAC, and it was such a fabulous, easy recipe. I made one big tart rather than individual ones, but otherwise it was exactly the same. next time I make it, I'm going to make the nutmeg ice cream too, as it sounds fabulous.


  1. Preheat oven to 180°C Make the caramel base for the tarts by mixing the sugar and 50ml of water in a small heavy bottomed saucepan. Put on high heat and cook til syrup is golden, then take off the heat and whisk in the butter.
  2. Divide the caramel among 6 round tart tins ( 8-10cm wide and 2cm deep ).
  3. Cut bananas into 5mm slices and arrange them in a single slightly overlapping layer. Cut rounds of puff pastry to fit and place over the top tucking the edges inches.
  4. Bake for 20 mins or until golden, then turn out each one by tipping upsode down and tapping the base. Serve immediately topped with a scoop of nutmeg icecream.
