Banana Tart Tartin...


  • 160g Caster Sugar
  • 160g Butter, in small pieces
  • 60ml Dark Rum
  • 600g Puff Pastry
  • 4 large, slightly unripe Bananas

  • Saturate the sugar with 60ml of cold water and melt gently.

  • Boil to a medium dark brown caramel, but do not let it burn. 
  • Take off the heat and stir in the rum.
  • Pour the caramel into 8 cast iron pans or tins that are big enough to fit a banana.

  • Peel the banana and slice in half lengthwise.

  • Turn the bananas over and press the pastry to the sides of the banana and trim away any excess, then place flat side down on the caramel.
