I have an epic collection of recipes that I have either downloaded from online, or torn out of magazines and newspapers. It is rather telling that the vast majority of them are sweet recipes.
A source of some great recipes is David Lebovitz's newsletter. Recently, he featured a recipe for Banana Upside Down Cake that just spoke to me (at least, the gorgeous gooey bronze caramel spoke to me), so I downloaded it. You can find it here.
Happily for me, this cake actually got made (helped along by three large aged bananas in my fruit bowl). In addition to the aforesaid gooey caramel top on this cake, there are the sliced bananas that get coated in the caramel, and a lovely, light spongy cake underneath. I am with David on the fact that this is best eaten warm, and that you don't need any accompaniments to enjoy it.
This is one heavenly cake. If you like bananas, or even if you don't, I highly recommend giving this cake a go. I loved it.
