Caramel Banana Tart

Caramel Banana Tart

This tart is easy to make.
You can make it with one egg.

Ingredients: 18 cm diameter tart pan

Caramel banana
Ripe Banana
30 g
1 teaspoon
Unsalted butter (or margarine)
50 g
Powdered sugar
30 g
Beaten egg
20 g
Cake flour
85 g
Almond powder
20 g
Custard filling
leftover from the tart crust
40 g
Cake flour
15 g
120 ml


1. Preparation: Cut the banana into 8 mm thick slices. Bring the butter to room temperature. Grease the tart pan with butter or shortening and dust with flour.
2. Caramel banana: Add the sugar and water into a frying pan, and turn on the heat to high. When the sauce starts to brown, add the banana slices all at once. Turn off the heat, and mix briefly.
3. Tart crust: Cream the butter. Add the powdered sugar and egg, and mix each time. Sift in the dry ingredients, and mix.
4. Wrap the tart crust with plastic wrap, and roll it out into the size of the tart pan without letting it rest. Place the crust into the pan. Preheat the oven for 180℃.
5. Poke holes all over with a folk, and place parchment paper on top. Place in some pie weights and bake in the oven for 15 minutes at 180℃.
6. Custard filling: Make the filling while baking the tart crust. Add the remaining egg and sugar into a bowl, and mix well. Add the flour, and mix some more.
7. Add the milk little by little.
8. When the tart crust has finished baking, remove the weights and parchment paper. Place the caramelized bananas in the crust.
9. Strain the custard filling into the crust. It's easy to carry to the oven if you work on a baking sheet.
10. Bake in the oven for 25 ~ 30 minutes at 180℃ (without preheating) until the custard filling rises and browns lightly.
11. When finished baking, let it cool in the pan. Once cooled, remove from the tart mold.
