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 )
- 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.
- Divide the caramel among 6 round tart tins ( 8-10cm wide and 2cm deep ).
- 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.
- 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.
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.
