Ingredients:

For the topping:

  • 6 medium bananas, peeled (halved lengthways)
  • 1 cup firmly packed brown sugar
  • 100 grams melted butter

For the cake:

  • 1 ½ cups caster sugar
  • 200 grams’ butter, at room temperature
  • 2 cups flour
  • 3 ½ teaspoons baking powder
  • ¾ cup milk
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 eggs

 


Instructions:

To make the topping:

  • Preheat oven to 180°C/350°F/Gas Mark 4. Grease an 8-inch (24 cm) springform cake tin.
  • Combine brown sugar together with melted butter and spread into the base of the tin.
  • Cover with banana halves. Leave aside.

To make the cake:

  • In a mixing bowl, beat the caster sugar and butter until thick and pale. Whisk in eggs and vanilla extract.
  • Sift baking powder and flour together and add into creamed mixture; beat the mixture and gradually add the milk. Continue mixing until well incorporated.
  • Spread the batter over the bananas. Place in the oven and bake for 90 minutes, or just until a tester inserted in the middle comes out clean.
  • Remove, loosen cake, and then immediately invert on to a serving dish (or the caramelized sugar will stick to the cake tin making it difficult to remove). Allow to cool for 20 minutes; slice and serve.

Enjoy!
