This banana tarte tatin recipe is an easy dessert to make on short notice. Ripe bananas are always in season and frozen puff pastry can be found in most major grocery stores. Pull the puff pastry out to thaw while you slice bananas and simmer the rum sauce. Best of all, this recipe is very forgiving.
- 1 sheet frozen puff pastry
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 1/2 cup rum sauce
- 3 bananas (cut crosswise into 1/2-inch slices)
Gather the ingredients.
Preheat the oven to 425 F.
Working on a clean surface, roll the pastry dough into an 11-inch circle and chill.
Melt the butter in a 10-inch ovenproof skillet.
Add the rum sauce and bring to a simmer.
Remove from heat and arrange the banana slices in a single layer in the hot rum sauce.
Drape the pastry over the bananas, fitting the overhang up the sides of the skillet.
Bake in the preheated oven for 22 to 25 minutes, until the pastry turns golden brown.
Cool the tarte tatin in the skillet for 30 minutes.
Then invert it onto a serving platter.
Serve and enjoy!
TIP: If you simply have no time to make homemade French rum sauce, use store-bought caramel sauce kicked up with a sprinkle of cinnamon.
