Wouldn't you just butter a pan very well with real butter, put down some brown sugar, slice your bananas and top with any cake batter you liked, most likely yellow cake of some type? Cook as directed?

I do it just like pineapple upside down cake only with bananas instead. Sometimes I add bananas and mandarin oranges along with pineapple for a tropical upside down cake.


The bananas taste just like baby food bananas and are awesome!
