If you are searching for that one great banana cake recipe, the one that will always impress people, taste great, is easy to throw together yet so hard to mess up, then this is the cake for you.
A couple of weeks ago I was feeling guilty about the ripe bananas sitting on my counter that were about to go bad, so I made this Banana-Pecan and Dulce de Leche Upside Down Cake… and it was soooo delicious. Upside Down Cake is best served warm and even better with vanilla ice cream.
I can’t wait to make it again. Buen provecho!
