All of us a familiar with different varieties of upside-down cakes and this Banana upside-down cake will top your list once you’ve tasted it. Being in a country which is the largest producer of bananas, its unfair to miss out this lovely fruit in our desserts. I used Nendran banana, which is more firmer, tastier and healthier than other varieties. The soft and spongy cake with a lovely top layer of caramelized bananas will make your loved ones ask for more. You will be surprised how fast the cake gets over once its out of the oven!
