Got some extra bananas lying around? Instead of leaving them untouched, use them up to make this caramelicious
Banana-Upside Down Cake.

It’s a fresh twist to the old-school bakery banana cake. There's a layer of caramelised bananas at the top, which makes it perfect for serving the cake with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. 

Bake it in a square pan and serve bite-size slices in a gathering, or use ramekins to make perfectly-portioned desserts for two.

No matter which way you have it, this cake is as delicious as you can imagine!
