Bananas Foster Tartelettes

Wednesday, May 09, 2007




Well, the same says it all. This was an impromptu dessert made last night. The boys were working on the boat and I decided to have T. stay over for dinner. There was plenty for 3 but I did not have any dessert fixed up....ok I am lying, there was ice cream but only for one and if we did not want to fight over it I'd better come up with something fast. I had half of the inside-out puff pastry chilling in the fridge and some banana that were getting a little too yellow for B. so there you have it:

Bananas Foster Tartelettes:

(serves 4)

Inside Out Puff Patry (or store bought)
2 bananas
2 Tb. butter
1/3 cup light brown sugar
1/4 cup dark rum

Roll enough puff pastry to cut out 4 3-inch rounds with a cookie cutter. Lay them on a baking sheet lined with parchement paper, cover with another sheet of parchement paper and set another baking sheet on top. They will puff up but won't get wild on you. (I did not press them flat after baking like I did with the Mille-Feuille)
Bake at 375 (F) until golden brown. Remove from the oven and allow to cool.

For the bananas:
Cut them into 1/2 inch thick slices.
In a sautee pan, over medium heat, melt the butter, add the brown sugar and the rum and sloow the sugar to melt and the mixture to thicken up a little. Put the slices in a single layer in the sauce and cook 2 minutes. Flip and cook another minute. Remove from the heat and allow to cool slightly.
Once cooled, place them in a decorative pattern on top of the tart shells, and serve.

Oh man that was good...so good I am glad I made extras....!
See...I can do uncomplicated sometimes!!!

So simple, but beautiful, too. That's a great tip about putting the parchment and baking sheet on top. Looks like the pastry puffed just enough. Lovely photos, too.

Bananas all too often hide out behind the scenes and it's a shame because I love banana desserts! These look delicate and divine; thanks for bringing bananas into the spotlight!

Je suis toujours impressionnee par ton travail. Ces tartelettes me plaisent autant que tes desserts plus sophistiques. Je ne connaissais pas le truc de la cuisson pour avoir les fonds de tarte feuillettee comme ca :)

Ivonne said...

That's the dessert that you just "whipped up"?!

Where do you live again? I'm on my way!!!

Ellie said...

How! How do you do this?! Time after time, coming up with mouthwateringly delectable desserts like this? How I wish I was your neighbor...then maybe I could get a few nibbles here and there ;)

The boys are really lucky:)

J'aime aussi!!! Oh La la! The brilliance in this is in its simplicity, that - and having fresh puff pastry in the fridge.

I think others have said this already. It may have been simple for you to make, but it looks as good as something a fine restaurant would serve. Just mouth watering.

Uncomplicated it maybe but you've got to come up with the idea part first.
It's really beautiful. I'll be right over!

Banana foster on puff pastry! What a great idea!

Fantastic idea for a dessert. They look so lovely and elegant. I can almost taste the sweetness just by looking.

Brilynn said...

Even your "uncomplicated" desserts look like they should be in a showcase!

Patricia Scarpin said...

Helene, you've certainly taken bananas to a whole new level - what a classy and beautiful (not to mention delicious) way to have them!

JennDZ said...

They look beautiful and I am sure they were a hit!

The humble banana has risen to star status in this dessert of yours!
