    bluemoon downunder's Note:

    As with all upside-down cakes, what goes into the pan first ends up on top, so this ready-to-eat banana cake has enticing banana slices on top making it both aesthetically more pleasing to the eye - and even more delicious. Adapted from a recipe in a recent issue of the Australian magazine 'New Idea'. If you like nuts on your banana cakes, add slivered almonds - as suggested below - or whatever nuts take your fancy!

    TOPPING

    SERVING SUGGESTIONS (optional)

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Grease a 14cm x 24cm loaf pan, and line the base and sides with baking paper.
    2. 2
      Making the topping: combine the butter and sugar in a small bowl and stir until the sugar has dissolved; spread this over the base of the pan; cut each banana into 9cm lengths, then cut each banana into four even slices; arrange the slices, cut-side facing downwards on top of the butter-sugar mixture.
    3. 3
      Making the cake: beat the butter, sugar and vanilla extract in a small bowl (with an electric mixer if you have one) until light and fluffy; beat in the egg until it has combined with the mixture; transfer to a large bowl and stir in the mashed bananas; then gradually stir in the flour and the milk. Once the mixture is thoroughly combined, spoon it into the prepared pan on top of the banana slices.
    4. 4
      Cooking the cake: cook in a moderate (180°C) for one hour or until cooked when tested with a skewer; allow it to rest in the pan for 5-10 minutes, then turn it out onto an wire rack to cool.
    5. 5
      Serving the cake: the banana cake can be served warm or at room temperature. Serve with fresh cream or sweetened cream cheese (see SERVING SUGGESTIONS below).
    6. 6
      SERVING SUGGESTIONS: to serve the cake with sweetened cream cheese, beat 125g cream cheese with 2 tablespoons of icing sugar until the mixture is smooth, and serve in a separate bowl. Sprinkle the cake with slivered almonds.

      For all you banana lovers, THIS IS A GREAT TASTING CAKE! Made it as per the recipe (so easy to do!) & so tasty when served with the sweetened cream cheese AND some toasted almonds! Am definitely making this one again (several times) during the up-coming winter holidays! [Tagged, made & reviewed for one of my vegan partners in the Vegetarian/Vegan Recipe Swap 3]

      Nice flavor and easy to do. I like that it makes 1 loaf not a huge cake. Thanks for sharing. Made for Holiday Tag.
