It has been a while since I last posted a new recipe here!Well I have no excuse.. just laziness. 😛
Okay so last weekend I made this very famous Mauritian Tart called “Tarte Banane”. It turned out pretty well for a first trial. I was impressed with myself (not that its any difficult to make anyway 😛 )
For the dough:
250 g Plain flour
130 g Soft Margarine
A little bit of cold Water
For the filling
8 ripe Bananas
3-4 tablespoon sugar
Milk for glazing
Rub together flour and Butter until it has the texture of bread crumbs.
Then just to combine and form a dough add a little bit of cold water .Mix well to obtain a soft dough. (let the dough rest at room temperature)
In a large bowl “Mash” the peeled bananas then add sugar.
Pour the mixture in a saucepan and cook over low/medium heat. Constantly stir the mixture so that it cooks evenly. Turn off the heat when the banana mixture becomes sticky and light brown in color. (5- 10 mins cooking)
Pre heat oven at 200 degree
Roll out ½ of the dough (aprox half centimeter in thickness) and line small tartlet tins.
Fill the tartlets with the banana mixture, spread evenly. Roll over the remaining dough, cut into long strips and place to form that famous criss-cross pattern on each tart.
Brush the tartlets with milk and bake for 15-20 mins or until golden brown.
