Cake recipe

I have baked  plenty of banana cakes but like to try this  cake with caramel topping.  This Banana Upside Down Cake brings banana cake to a whole new level..

Banana Upside  Down Cake has 2 parts consisting the cake and its topping.  You know that a bunch of banana that has been hanging out in your pantry?  We found the perfect use for it. This recipe allows you to clear up those blackened banana, 2 for cake and 3 for the topping.  Have cut the banana lengthwise for topping but you can also slice  it into rounds.

Am using a loaf pan but you could also use an 8 in round pan and arrange the banana the way you like it.

In case you ever wondered, what  could be better than bananas, well here it is, Banana Upside Down Cake. Meet your new  fave way to enjoy the fruit
