Put it right way up inside your bellah!


I mean holyfuckingshit look at that ooey gooey shit hot caramelized banana fucking upside down cake!

Wanna make it? You KNOW you do.

Get these for the banana topping:

  • 4 x bananas sliced in half across ways then in half or thirds lengthways (depending on how THICK your BANANA is!)
  • 50g (2 Tbsp) butter
  • 1/3 cup (60g) dark brown sugar

And these for the batter:

  • 125g soft butter
  • 2/3 cup dark brown sugar
  • 2 free range eggs
  • 1 & 1/4 cups wholemeal self raising flour + 2 Tbsp
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 2 more bananas


Now assemble it as follows:

  1. First, preheat your oven to 180C (350F).
  2. Grease and line a 20cm spring form cake tin.
  3. Melt the butter in a little saucepan or the microwave, but not too hot, don’t want it to separate!
  4. Pour the butter into the cake tin then sprinkle over the sugar.
  5. Now lay the sliced bananas closely inside the tin (you want it too look pretty and tidy because it’s the top of the cake yeah).
  6. Cream butter and sugar well and good, no half arsed creaming please, let them grind up against each other until they become one.
  7. Now add 1 of the eggs and 1 of the extra tablespoons of flour. Then repeat with the other egg and the other extra tablespoon of flour (this is for amalgamation purposes).
  8. Now fold through the flour and baking powder.
  9. Lastly, break the additional 2 bananas into pieces and drop them into the batter whilst the beater is running and mix through.
  10. Carefully dollop the batter atop the bananas in the tin and bake for 45 – 55 minutes or until a skewer comes out clean.
  11. Leave to cool somewhat then tip upside down onto a cooling rack.


Don’t forget to take a photo and put it on Instagram or Facebook or wherever you like to share your cooking prowess. If you fancy, please hash tag this motherfucker #180yourfood so I can search for it on IG and drool over it. Thanks ever so!

This cake is best eaten whilst still warm, by itself is fine but you might like some vanilla yoghurt as I do, some vanilla ice cream like my husband does or perhaps some custard to take it up a notch on the taste-gasm stakes?! M-m-m!

Not as pretty when cooled overnight in the fridge but just as delicious, (and a perfect way to momentarily escape from the hum drum that is the park with the smalls) I packed everyone in our house off with a piece today.


I know you’ve got six bananas just sitting there going black and spotty and you’re like “No more smoothies I want to EAT you penis shaped bitches!” so like yeah get on it.
