Pineapple Tarte Tatin

70 g butter
100 g golden caster sugar
375 g fresh ready made puff pastry
1 small pineapple
double cream to serve

Pre heat oven 200 C/400 F/gas 6.

Cut the top and bottom off of the pineapple and standing it upright on a board cut off the skin in strips from top to bottom. Slice very thinly into rounds.
In a 28 cm oven proof frying pan or cake tin, (not with removeable base) melt the butter with the sugar over a medium heat. Cook for about 5 minutes until the mixture is starting to go brown and caramelise.
Arrange the pineapple slices in concentric circles in the pan.
Roll out the pastry to just about 2.5-5cm larger than the pan and prick all over with a fork. Slide the pastry on top of the pineapple tucking the edges down the inside of the pan.
Put the tarte tatin on the top shelf and bake for about 30-40 minutes or until the pastry is crisp and golden. Leave to cool for 5 minutes before inverting onto a plate.
Serve warm with double cream.
