Sticky Upside-Down Banana Cake

We are used to seeing upside-down cakes with pineapple and cherries but this Sticky Upside-Down Banana Cake is a fantastic alternative take on the classic dessert. As it cooks, the banana caramelizes with sugar and unsalted butter and becomes a sweet, sticky delicious topping when the cake is inverted.

Start by making caramel from sugar and butter. Add to a cake pan and place halved bananas on top. Make a cake batter by combining all the ingredients in a bowl and beating with a handheld mixer. Bake in the oven for about an hour. If the cake begins to look too dark on top, cover with foil after 45 minutes. Leave the cake to cool for about 10 minutes before inverting onto a serving plate and enjoy!

To make Sticky Upside-Down Banana Cake, you will need the following ingredients:
