Gluten free Banana Frangipan Tart with Genius !


I came across ready-made gluten free short crust pastry by Genius .
I am always skeptical about ready-made alternative diet products and wondered how close to the real thing the pastry is but this is perfect.

The trick is to thaw the pastry thoroughly and knead it alot until it is pliable before you cover your tart dish. I am using a gluten free filling too with no added butter or oil as I use yoghurt instead. The result is great as you can see.

The cooked pastry was crisp and produced a good finish.



For an 8-inch tart dish you will need:
1 packet Genius Gluten Free Shortcrust Pastry. Knead, roll out and cover the
bottom of the tart dish. Bake blind for 35 minutes at 170C.

For the filling:
2 bananas mashed up
300g ground almonds
3 eggs
A few drops vanilla extract
150g sugar
125 ml plain yoghurt
1/2 teaspoon gluten free baking soda

Mix everything together. Fill the cooked tart crust. Bake at 170 C for 15
Allow to cool before you remove from the tart dish. Decorate with flaked

  1. Very Interesting… just today I was watching a cooking show on pâte sucrée.
    I’m not sure if I can find Genius brand in our local market, but I am sure going to look for it. Your g/f banana frangipan looks absolutely gorgeous.
