Imagine bananas foster on top of a moist yellow cake. Oh, my! This banana upside down cake recipe is caramelized banana goodness. Top it with a scoop of vanilla ice cream for an even richer dessert

Cuisine: American
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 40 to 45 minutes
Total Time: 50 to 55 minutes



  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 4 bananas, sliced in half lengthwise
  • 1/4 cup chopped pecans


Here's how to make it: 

  1. For the bananas, melt the butter in a skillet. Add the brown sugar and cinnamon. Cook until the sugar melts. Pour the mixture into a round cake pan. Lay the bananas on top of the melted sugar. Sprinkle with the pecans.
  2. For the cake, combine the flour, baking powder and salt in a bowl. In another bowl, combine the oil, sugar, vanilla, egg, egg yolk and buttermilk. Stir well. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients until just combined. Pour the batter over the bananas. 
  3. Bake in a preheated 350-degree F oven for about 35 to 40 minutes. 
  4. Remove the cake from the oven and run a butter knife around the edges. Carefully invert onto a plate. Leave the pan on for a few minutes before lifting it off.
