You know a dessert is good when you literally have to take the fork out of your husband’s hand to stop him from eating the entire cake.
“This is dangerously good,” he mumbled through a mouth full of warm cake.
Well folks… looks like we have a winner! This Banana Coconut Upside Down Cake
has a layer of bananas and coconut with a brown sugar sauce infusing every bite.
Technically this is a dessert but for some reason, probably because bananas are involved, I know I’ll find a way to serve it up for breakfast or brunch. The great thing about it is that it only takes minutes to assemble but appears like you spent all day on it.
Start off with layering sliced bananas on the bottom of a two cake pans.
My first thought when I was making this cake was, “Wait a second. Don’t we need frosting?”
Oh no. By adding this brown sugar mixture, a frosting-like layer is created that oozes in between the bananas and coconut while baking.
Next, sprinkle on some coconut and spread your cake batter on top.
