Mango tartes Tatins
- November 2004
- Serves 6
- Takes 50 minutes to make, plus chilling
This is a clever but simple take on the classic apple tarte tatin recipe. With only 4 ingredients, it couldn’t be easier!
For a tropical take on mangos, try this recipe for mango baked in coconut sugar and kaffir lime.
- Vegetarian recipes
- 20.3g (9.6g saturated)
- 45g (22g sugar)
- 40g butter, plus extra to grease
- 3 small ripe mangoes, peeled
- 50g golden granulated sugar
- 375g pack ready-rolled puff pastry
- Base line 6 x 8cm individual round tartlet tins with baking paper and grease the sides of the tins with butter. Cut the flesh away in one piece from each side of the 3 mango stones. Make about 10 cuts along three-quarters of the length of each mango cheek, so that the slices are still joined together at the top.
- Put the sugar in a large, heavy-based frying pan. Heat very gently until the sugar dissolves and turns brown. Add the butter, then stir with a wooden spoon to combine. Add the mango to the pan, curved side down, and cook for 2-3 minutes, pressing down to fan out the slices (there’s no need to turn them over). Lift the mango into the tins, curved side down, and drizzle with any remaining caramel.
- Unroll the pastry and, using the tins as a guide, cut out 6 rounds. Use to top each mango piece. Chill for at least 15 minutes.
- Preheat the oven to 220°C/fan200°C/gas 7. Bake for 20-25 minutes until the pastry is puffed up and golden. Carefully invert onto plates – watch out for the hot caramel – and serve with creme fraiche, if you like.
