  • Prep

  • Cook

  • Ready In

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour 2 (8 inch) pans. Combine butter and brown sugar, divide and spread evenly between the 2 pans. Sprinkle pecans evenly over both brown sugar mixtures, arrange banana slices evenly over each.
  2. Prepare cake mix according to package instructions. Divide batter into the 2 pans.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven for 40 to 45 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean. Turn cakes upside down on a platter or plate, gently tap bottom and carefully remove pans, replacing caramel mixture that sticks to pan.


  • Tip
  • Aluminum foil can be used to keep food moist, cook it evenly, and make clean-up easier.

Wonderful cake. I mixed 2 oz dark rum into the batter before baking. Contrasted well with the sweetness.

The top of my cake turned green.

This recipe is awesome! My family rated it a 10 out of 5 stars, hehe. Quick to prepare, nice presentation, and a great alternative to those that find pineapple to be too caustic for their tastes...

This was so so so good. And I don't even like bananas! I used a skillet - be careful when flipping it! :) I had to re-mold it, but you couldn't tell. Also, I used Trader Joe's Vanilla cake ...
