Banana Upside-Down Cake
cut into 1/
Recipe by: Cooking With Cornelius - The Corning Cookbook Preheat oven
to 350 F. In a 10-inch oven-proof skillet, melt 5 1/2 Tbs of the
butter with the brown sugar over very low heat. Meanwhile, in a large
mixing bowl, cream the remaining 4 Tbs of butter with the white sugar
until light. Add the mashed bananas, eggs, vanilla and rum; stir.
Then add the flour, baking soda, salt and spices; beat in sour cream.
Arrange the banana slices in a pretty pattern in the skillet with the
brown sugar mixture; top with the walnuts. Pout the batter over all
and place in the oven for 50 to 60 mins or until a toothpick inserted
in the center comes out clean. Turn out immediately onto a plate.
Serve with ice cream if you are feeling especially sinful. Yield: 8
to 10 servings
