I love those recipes that we all grew up with, they are just too good to miss out on.Sweet, gooey, and delicious, everyone will go bananas for the moist texture of this banana upside-down cake. The upside-down cake recipe features a brown sugar-glazed banana topping over top of a sweet banana cake.
This banana upside-down cake recipe is easy, quick but also very original. With its melting texture and deliciously caramelized bananas, it’s hard to resist this gourmet dessert. The principle is the same as for a tarte tatin: the fruit is placed in the bottom of the mould, a caramel is made and the dough is covered. After a short passage in the oven, all you have to do is unmold this upside-down cake and then enjoy!
