How To Make Banana Upside Down Cake

Add 1 cup of brown sugar and 1/2 a cup of melted butter.

Mix until the texture is nice and smooth.

Grease a 9-inch baking pan with cooking spray.

Add the mixture to the base of the pan and spread out evenly.

Slice up a couple of ripe bananas. Arrange them over the top of the butter and sugar mixture.

Cover the whole area, smoothing out with a spatula.

Set aside in the fridge, so bananas don’t brown.

Add a box of vanilla cake mix (430grams, 15oz) to a cup of water and 1/2 a cup of vegetable oil and 3 eggs and combine.

Mix with electric beaters or hand until well combined and lump-free. 

Add in half a cup of chocolate chips. Using a spatula, mix it up.

Pour the cake mixture over the banana and sugar mixture.

Pop in a 350F/177C oven for 55 minutes. Bake until a toothpick comes out clean.

Allow to cool, and then run a knife around the edges.

Pop a cake plate over the top and tap gently. Turn upside down onto your plate and serve.
