Michelle was so sweet to make this for Eri's birthday party yesterday. It was literally eaten up within seconds of it hitting the table!!!! And believe me, it is so good! So good, it was almost all gone before I could get a photo... Or a piece!
Here is the recipe straight from Michelle! Thanks to Michelle for sharing for the blog! I am sure everyone is going to love this!!!!
Michelle's Banana Foster Upside Down Cake
1/3rd cup melted butter
1 cup packed brown sugar
2 tsp cinnamon
Splash of Rum or 1 1/2 tsp rum extract
1 tsp vanilla extract
4/5 bananas sliced longways down the middle
1 yellow cake mix
1 cup skim milk, or 1 1/2 cup whole milk
8 tbs (1 stick) melted unsalted butter
How to make it
Melt 1/3rd butter for topping and pour in the bottom of a rectangle baking pan 9 x 13. Add the brown sugar, vanilla, rum, and cinnamon and stir with a fork. Add sliced bananas, cut side down in a row across 9 x 13 cake pan.
In a large bowl mix the cake mix, eggs, melted stick of butter and milk with an electric mixer, about 3 minutes. Batter should be smooth. Pour over banana topping mixture and bake at 350 deg for 40-45 min.
Run a knife along the edges and invert onto serving plate. Cake should release, if not let it rest until it does.
Serve warm with ice cream or whipped cream.
This can also be made in a large cast iron skillet.
