Tarte tatin is one of the those recipes that will wow guests at a dinner party but as actually really easy to make. It's all about caramelised fruit and a lovely puff pastry base, and banana is a perfect fruit to use as it contains lots of natural sugar.

Tips for Gordon Ramsay's Banana tarte tatin

  • Before placing in the oven, pierce the pastry of your tarte tatin to allow steam to escape.
  • Cut your puff pastry slightly larger than the pan that you will cook it in, use a plate as a guide if necessary.
