Glazed Upside Down Banana Loaf

Glazed Upside Down Banana Loaf

Having ripe bananas at home and you have no idea what to do with them? Worry not! Upside down Banana Loaf Cake is simply delicious, the best accompaniment for tea time, also a wonderful snack if you have kids at home. This utterly butterly delicious banana cake is definitely going to be everyone's favorite snack. 

My husband happened to see a video on facebook of a banana bread ice cream cake, and he wanted me to bake it for him. Since I had no ice cream in the freezer, I thought of giving it a try with my own ideas. I always loved the caramel dripping effect, so I took my take on the upside-down caramel banana loaf. When I was experimenting with my recipe, I had my cousins come over unexpectedly. They loved the loaf, more than them their kids kept munching on them and came asking for more. Everyone wanted the recipe. It was an adapted version of the one I saw on facebook and it came out so good.

The smell that came from the oven while I had them bake made me go bonkers, I just couldn't wait to try them. I loved how the caramel glaze came out on the top. Feel free to add a little whipped cream, when making the sauce (it will spill all over initially, be careful) if you like more of caramel than the glaze effect. Mind that the glaze one is very sweet, I would definitely try the caramel version the next time.

  • 2 overripe bananas
  • 3 tbsp Brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup + 1/4 cup melted butter
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp cinnamon powder (optional)
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla 
  • 1 1/2 Flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • Salt a pinch
  • 1 tbsp raisins/ blueberry
  • 2 tbsp yogurt/curd


  1. Preheat the oven to 180℃. 
  2. In a small saucepan, melt the butter and add in the brown sugar and let it get to a boil on medium-low flame. Pour the glaze into the loaf pan.

  1. Slice the banana and place them carefully, lined in a pattern on the sauce poured.

  2. Now smash the other banana with the help of a fork in a separate bowl. Add in the butter, egg, sugar, vanilla essence, yogurt, blueberries/raisins and combine them using a spatula.

  3. Now add in the rest of the ingredients; the flour, baking soda, and salt. Mix till well combined.
  4. Pour the mixture to a loaf pan.

  5. Now bake the loaf for around 50 mins till a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean.
  6. After the loaf almost cools, about 20 mins later, go around the sides of the loaf using a blunt knife and level the bulge layer and make it a flat surface, as it is an upside-down loaf.
  7. Now place the loaf upside down on your serving plate and tap the loaf pan a few times for the loaf to loosen and drop on the plate or serving platter. Get ready to be mesmerized! 😋


  •  To make home-made cinnamon powder, you need not buy one, you may grind it to fine powder by adding a tsp of sugar when grinding the cinnamon, it helps the powder to be finer.
  • I have only shown 1 egg in the picture, this is because I was experimenting and using my instincts and felt 2 eggs would be required which only dawned on me while I mixed the batter.
