Banana Upside-Downer



I have been part of the Tuesdays with Dorie group for almost two years. I love the thrill of making a new recipe every week. There is one thing that I rarely do though, I very seldom change anything about the recipe. I usually don't even make the variation of the recipe. I just like to get a feel for the recipe before I change things around. Yes, I'm boring like that. This week I put all of that aside and got a little crazy. Woo hoo. I couldn't find cranberries and I didn't want another peach dessert so I decided to use bananas.





I was very happy with the changes. I also added walnuts for crunch. Bananas, walnuts, and the cinnamon cake made a great flavor combination. Sometimes change can be good. Thanks to Sabrina of Superfluous for picking this recipe.

Sharon I would never have thought to use bananas with this cake but I am sure it was delicious. We loved this recipe and there are so many variations you could choose. I think yours looks very delicious.

Bananas and walnuts - how awesome! All you need is a little chocolate ice cream.

WOw, banana sounds like such a great alternative for those banana lovers out there! almost like banana cake/bread but with actual pieces of banana to munch on. great variation!
