This strawberry banana upside cake has a dense banana cake layer, like a banana bread bar, covered with a jammy layer of fresh strawberries.


Place sliced berries, brown sugar and starch into a medium sized bowl. Stir until the berries are well coated with the sugar.

Step 1

Combine the flour, sugar, baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon and salt in a large bowl. Whisk together until well combined.

Step 2

In a second bowl, crack your eggs.  Whisk until frothy, like soap bubbles. Then, add the vanilla and oil to the eggs and whisk until smooth.

Step 3

Add the egg mixture and the mashed banana to the dry ingredients. Fold together about 15 strokes until all flour is incorporated.

Step 4

Place the sugar coated strawberries in the bottom of your lined pan. Discard the liquid in the bowl.

Step 5

Spoon the cake batter onto the strawberries to avoid disturbing the pattern.

Step 6

Spread the batter into an even layer with an offset spatula. Bake!

Step 7

A delicious spring treat!
