  • 25g sugar

  • 1 desiccated coconut (or grated chocolate - optional)

  • 100g margarine

  • 1 jar jam

  • 225g plain flour

  • 1 banana (or 2, or 3 - depending on your taste)

  • 30ml water

  • 230ml custard


For the pastry:

  1. Preheat oven to 190C (gas mark 5.)
  2. Mix flour and sugar, rub in fat.
  3. Mix with cold water using a knife to cut and stir to form a dough.
  4. Knead dough lightly on a floured surface.
  5. Roll out and put in a flan tin.
  6. Place a circle of greaseproof paper over the bottom of the tart and sprinkle a layer of rice or dried beans on top to prevent it rising (don't put it directly on the pastry!).
  7. Bake for 20 mins, remove the rice/beans and paper, return for 5 more minutes until crisp and golden.
  8. Allow to cool.

For the filling:

  1. Make up custard according to instructions but missing out some liquid to make it thick, leave to cool slightly.
  2. Dollop jam into the pastry case and spread around evenly.
  3. Slice bananas and arrange on top of jam.
  4. Pour partially cooled custard on top of the jam and bananas.
  5. Sprinkle dessicated coconut on top of custard if liked.
  6. Leave to set in fridge.

Handy Hint

Grated chocolate can be used instead of coconut but don't put it on while the custard is warm!

    Would use butter instead of marge for the pastry, but otherwise, yum!
