A banana caramel filling sits inside a buttery tart and is topped with a layer of whipped cream, rich chocolate ganache, and salty pretzels. A sweet and salty dream come true.

This dessert is rich, buttery, and packed with flavor that combines the most amazing caramel with some over-ripe bananas, plenty of chocolate and a delicate cloud of whipped cream.
The banana caramel tart with pretzels is sweet, fragrant, rich, creamy, silky and yet texturized, it’s basically all you ever wanted from a tart and much more. It’s a banoffee pie brought to a whole new level with the addition of a rich chocolate ganache and a salty, crunchy pretzel tart and it’s absolutely perfect if you like bananas, pretzels, chocolate and the mix of silky and crunchy in the same bite.
I am a self-taught baker and pastry-school graduate and I have an affinity for food. But I especially love baking, taking pictures, exploring dessert cookbooks, entremets and writing. I focus on creative desserts and baking techniques that are aimed to both novices and experts in the kitchen and I truly believe that being a pastry chef is not about looking for innovative ways of making desserts, but about learning the basic techniques and then combining them into new, original desserts, relying on textures and flavors.
