Banana Upside-Down Cake Recipe

  • 4 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans
  • 4 bananas, sliced
  • 1 (18.25 ounce) package banana cake mix
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour 2 (8 inch) pans. Combine butter and brown sugar, divide and spread evenly between the 2 pans. Sprinkle pecans evenly over both brown sugar mixtures, arrange banana slices evenly over each.
  2. Prepare cake mix according to package instructions. Divide batter into the 2 pans.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven for 40 to 45 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean. Turn cakes upside down on a platter or plate, gently tap bottom and carefully remove pans, replacing caramel mixture that sticks to pan.
