recipe

  • Step 1
    Preheat the oven to 400°F. In a bowl, mix the flour, 1 cup (softened) butter, 1 cup sugar, and a pinch of salt. Mix until the dough forms a crumbly texture.
  • Step 2
    Add the yolk and 3 tablespoons of water. Combine well and form the dough into a ball.
  • Step 3
    Flour your work surface and roll out the dough to 1/4 inch thickness.
  • Step 4
    Add the rest of the butter and sugar to a pan on medium heat. Mix and let it melt.
  • Step 5
    Peel the bananas and cut them in half lengthwise.
  • Step 6
    Mix the caramel frequently, ensuring that it doesn't burn.
  • Step 7
    Optional: add parchment paper to the base of your cake pan.
  • Step 8
    Optional: Cut the vanilla bean in half lengthwise. Remove the inside using a knife.

    Once the caramel starts to darken, add the vanilla (optional) and mix. Let it cook for a few minutes, stirring frequently, and remove from heat.
  • Step 10
    Optional: put the vanilla bean at the base of the cake pan. Pour the caramel into the cake pan and add the bananas face down.
  • Step 11
    Top with the dough and fold in the borders. Prick a few times with a fork and bake for 20 minutes at 400°F.
  • Step 12
    Remove from the oven and let cool for 5 minutes. Place a large plate over the cake pan, hold it in place and quickly flip. Remove the cake pan. Enjoy!
