  1. Preheat the oven to gas 6, 200°C, fan 180°C. Grease and line a 22cm loose-bottomed tart tin with the pastry. Trim; leave a 5mm overhang.
  2. Line with baking paper and baking beans; bake for 10 mins. Remove the paper and beans; bake for a further 10 mins. Cool, then trim the pastry overhang. Remove from the tin and place on a freezer-proof baking sheet.
  3. Spread the salted caramel sauce over the base of the tart. Arrange the banana slices to cover the sauce.
  4. Put 7 large scoops of ice cream on top of the bananas, leaving a 1cm gap around the edge nearest the pastry. Fill the gaps between the scoops with the remaining ice cream for a slightly domed effect. Freeze for 45 mins.
  5. Meanwhile, whisk the egg whites to soft peaks. Add the sugar and whisk for 5-8 mins until stiff and glossy.
  6. Cover the tart with meringue, adding most at the centre to swirl into a dome. Ensure the meringue meets the tart case to create a seal. Freeze overnight.
  7. Preheat the oven to gas 8, 230°C, fan 210°C. Bake for 4-6 mins until the meringue tips are lightly golden.
