Honey Banana Upside-Down Cake

Honey Banana Upside-Down Cake
We know the traditional version of the upside-down cake in which he wants to star in the pineapple, which is always particularly impressive even when cooked & cut. Bananas, on the contrary, do not have such a "shine", but cutting them down and placing them in a row on the base of a refractory pot in honey can become just as attractive and beautiful. My opinion? Another taste, with the presence of honey!

Excerpt from the introduction:
«Αναρωτιέμαι συχνά που είναι το απόγειο της μαγειρικής. Είναι τα πιο φρέσκα υλικά, οι πιο πολύπλοκες γεύσεις είναι το καθημερινό ή το σπάνιο; Δεν είναι τίποτε απ΄όλα αυτά. Το απόγειο δεν είναι ούτε η κατανάλωση του φαγητού ούτε το μαγείρεμα, αλλά η προσφορά του φαγητού και η συντροφικότητα…»

Ingredients (8 large slices)

  • 180g sugar
  • 115g butter in room temperature
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • ¼ tsp baking soda
  • 200g (7 oz) all-purpose flour
  • 125g (4.4 oz) Greek yogurt
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 100g dried papaya, finelly chopped (optional)
  • 170g honey
  • 2 mature, peeled bananas
In a large bowl, we pour the sugar and butter. We beat them very well with a hand mixer until they become a white soft cream.
We add one by oney the eggs whipping very well each time to make a thick, fluffy mixture.
Inside the flour, pour the baking powder and soda and add the mixture to the bowl just a little, with a spatula, sifting it over the bowl mix…
… alternating with yoghurt. Gently mix with a spatula, not with the mixer, from the bottom up, like when we incorporate meringue. We put the vanilla…
… and the chopped papaya. Mix gently (bottom-up) evenly covered with the mixture. We do not exaggerate.
At the bottom of a 16x24×8cm (6.3x9.4×3.1 in) oven-safe deep dish from Pyrex pour the honey.
On the top we place the bananas cut in the middle in two and then bisect them lengthwise. We touch them at the bottom of the form with the cut side down.
Cover the bananas with the beaten mix of cakes and straighten them with a spatula. Put the mold in a preheated air oven at 170℃ (338℉, Gas Mark:4) at the lower grill.
Bake for 45′-50′. We try with a toothpick to come out clean. If it gets fast color cover with aluminum foil. Remove it from the oven on a wire base and leave it 15′ before turning it over to a platter.
