I found this easy to make cake on facebook, Banana Coconut Upside Down Cake. It is made with store bought yellow cake mix and is done in about 40 minutes. My Mom-in-law would have been proud.
Banana Coconut Upside Down Cake
I elected to use a 9x13 pan for this cake but you can make a double layered cake with two round cake pans.
6 bananas sliced
1 cup brown sugar
1 stick butter diced
1 1/2 cup dried coconut
1 box yellow cake mix
1/4 sour cream
1/4 cup oil
1 cup water
Pre heat oven to 350 degrees. In a medium sized pan add the brown sugar and butter and stir until the butter is all melted. Remove from the the heat and slice the bananas. Add the bananas to a buttered 9x13 baking dish. Spread the coconut over the bananas and then the brown sugar sauce over the bananas. Mix the cake mix and the next ingredients. Pour over the brown sugar sauce and make sure it's evenly spread out. Bake in the oven for 35-40 minutes. The top will be really brown. Let sit for 5 minutes and place a baking sheet over the cake. With oven mitted hands, flip over the cake and it should release. Serve warm with your favorite vanilla ice cream.
