Who doesn’t love bananas? I am just crazy for bananas and many other tropical fruits, as you already know. What’s more, from fruit salads to desserts, bananas also deliver, big time. A great example is this scrumptious, caramelized upside down banana bread — a recipe adapted from Dessert Before Dinner, the blog that I have been assigned to for this month. Yeah, baby! Today is SRC– Secret Recipe Club day!!!
Although the original recipe is a simple yet delicious banana bread, it caught my eye. It looked quite comforting, moist, and versatile since banana bread can be served either for breakfast or as a dessert — especially if paired with ice cream. 😉 In my home country, Brazil, this upside down banana bread would be enjoyed with cafezinho (a small cup of our strong coffee) or alternatively, with a cup of tea. Our upside down banana bread is still baking in the oven but I am already daydreaming about it.
Dessert Before Dinner is a blog authored by Stephy, a home baker from Arlington, Virginia. Although I do appreciate her recipe as it is, I had to put my own little spin on the recipe in order to make it my own. In this way, her Best Ever Banana Bread became our Upside Down Banana Bread. A few alterations were made to the original recipe, particularly the addition of a banana topping with caramel sauce. As always, you are welcome to try either recipe, or to put on your own personal touch(es) as well. I also have to say that following Stephy’s banana bread batter recipe yielded some surplus batter. I mixed this extra banana bread batter with Nutella and baked in a mini muffin pan. The leftovers were quickly taken care of and very much appreciated! 🙂 My kids can vouch for that!
For now, enjoy our scrumptious upside down banana bread. Its wonderful aroma is calling my name… I can barely await for it to cool down bit and to get a big slice of this upside down banana bread. 🙂
