Made with some of the most commonly available ingredients in any kitchen, this upside down banana cake is a delicious dessert that you cannot say no to!

If you are new to baking, like me, this upside down banana cake is a fabulous cake to include to your list of baking ideas! It’s easy to prep, looks fantastic, and tastes gorgeous!
Bananas coated with a delicious caramel topping forms the heart and soul of this cake.
Imagine cutting through the top layer of caramel and banana, followed by the soft and spongy cake, and scooping it out all at once in a spoonful! The explosion of flavours when they melt in your mouth, that’s what you have to visualise to get cracking.
This is a super-easy cake to bake! Making a caramel sauce and placing sliced bananas is the first part of this recipe.
Then comes the difficult part – beating eggs and castor sugar! You have to beat eggs and castor sugar with the vanilla extract like your life depends on it. I don’t have an electric whisk. I had to resort to the classic method of beating as much as you can! After the tasting the final result, I can proudly say that I managed to get enough air into the mix.
Sift baking powder and all-purpose flour and fold to the egg-castor sugar mix. Fold in some melted butter as well, and we are done with the cake mix. Pour this into the baking tin which is already lined with caramel and sliced bananas. Bake for 45 minutes at 160 degrees Celcius.
