Banane Al Caramello
Sticky Banana and Chocolate Tart

About This Recipe

Are you looking for a delicious chocolate recipe with a difference? If you are, you’ve found it! Here’s my sticky banana and chocolate tart for you to enjoy.

What a fantastic way to end a meal. So far, I don’t think I’ve met anyone, especially children, who doesn’t like this recipe. I promise you that once you’ve made this dish and realise how easy it is to do, it will become a favourite. My tip would be to make sure that you bake the tart in the middle of a preheated oven to avoid the pastry burning. If you have to, you can replace the bananas for firm large pears, peeled and cut in half.

Feast your eyes on the finest sticky banana and chocolate tart! It’s straightforward and fun to make this great dish. Simply follow the instructions below and get the perfect result.

Step By Step

  1. Melt the butter with the sugar in a deep-sided, heavy-based frying pan that can be used in the oven. Cook over a medium heat for about 5 minutes until it turns into golden caramel. Remove from the heat and set aside to cool slightly. Preheat the oven to 200°C/400°F/gas mark 6.
  2. Place the whole bananas in the pan creating a circle, breaking as necessary, ensuring that the entire base is covered. Sprinkle over the chocolate chips.
  3. Meanwhile, unroll the puff pastry onto a floured surface and cut a disc shape about 25cm diameter, or about 5cm bigger than the top of your pan.
  4. Lay the pastry over the bananas and tuck the overlap down inside the pan with your fingers.
  5. Bake the tart for 20–25 minutes or until the pastry is golden brown. Remove from the oven and set aside to cool for about 5 minutes.
  6. Take a large circular plate and place face down on top of the pan. Quickly invert the pan to turn the tart upside down. Remove the pan, leaving the bananas facing upwards.
  7. Serve generous portions with vanilla ice cream.

Dolce di panettone e miele con frutta grigliata e ricottaPanettone & Honey Pudding with Chargrilled Fruits & Ricotta

This is my Italian version of bread and butter pudding, served with char-grilled fruits and sweetened ricotta cheese. In Italy the ricotta is very creamy and rich, and I just added honey to sweeten it, but in Britain you might like to add a few drops of vanilla extract to give depth of flavour.

ZABAIONE AL LIMONCELLO CON FRAGOLEZabaione with Limoncello & Strawberries

Zabaione is an old Venetian dessert traditionally made with Marsala wine (or sometimes vin santo), but here I’ve given it a southern Italian twist by using limoncello – a lemon-flavoured liqueur that is produced mainly in Campania. It’s made from Amalfi lemons, which are famous for their wonderful sweet flavour and fragrance and exceptionally large size. Raspberries are equally delicious with...

Tranci di pesce spada con patate saltate e gremolataSwordfish Steaks & Sautéed Potatoes with Gremolata

I cooked this dish overlooking the beach at Pescoluse, on the Puglian coast. It’s known as the Maldives of Salento and is a hidden paradise. I used swordfish, but tuna would work well too. Gremolata is a dressing of raw chopped garlic, parsley and lemon zest. It is usually sprinkled over meats, such as osso bucco or carpaccio, but it also makes a great garnish for grilled fish. Always make sure you...

When I was a child, eating smoked salmon was always a massive treat because it was so expensive. It's cheaper now, but still fantastic. Just take care when seasoning the dish because the salmon is already salty.
